The ACA thinks this message from the Canadian Council of Archives and the National Archival Appraisal Board may be of interest to our members. The ACA will be submitting feedback to the Canadian Cultural Property Export Review Board on the updated monetary appraisal guidelines.
Deadline for input: September 18, 2020
Canadian Cultural Property Export Review Board (CCPERB) has issued new guidelines (dated July 31, 2020) that provide instructions for appraisers and applicants about the information required and recommended format for a monetary appraisal prepared in support of an application for certification submitted to CCPERB.
The National Archival Appraisal Board (NAAB) and the Canadian Council of Archives (CCA) are seeking the input of monetary appraisers and archival institutions across Canada, regarding this updated guide.
Within an economic climate of budget restrictions and cutbacks, the purchase of valuable Canadian archival materials is prohibitive to most archives and limited to a small number of large Canadian archival institutions. As a result, we want to encourage the ongoing deposit of cultural property in Canada's archives, and ensure that Canadians continue to be eligible for tax incentives for the donation of archival materials.
We feel that this revised guide is an excellent opportunity for the archival community to identify and consolidate areas of serious concern regarding the archival monetary appraisal framework in Canada.
You may complete the survey in either English or French and it will take between 10 to 20 minutes to complete, depending upon the extent of input you are able to provide. A PDF of the Canadian Cultural Property Export Review Board Guide for Monetary Appraisal is attached to this message. The survey will also display each section of the guide (in purple) and ask if you agree or disagree with the content (in black), and if you have any feedback to provide. Please be as specific as possible.
We sincerely appreciate you taking the time to complete this survey. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
