The ACA works closely with national and international stakeholders to support archives and records professionals in Canada and abroad.
Below are just a few of the ACA's stakeholders and associated organizations.
Canadian Council on Archives (CCA)
The Canadian Council on Archives (CCA) provides an advisory function, in partnership with the provincial and territorial councils, the National Provincial Territorial Archivists Conference (NPTAC), and the Council of Provincial and Territorial Archivists (CPTA), to all constituencies of the Canadian archival system, including Library and Archives Canada (LAC). In addition, the CCA coordinates, provides leadership and fosters development and cooperation within the Canadian archival system by assisting and supporting member archival organizations through programs and services that benefit Canadians.
Steering Committee on Canadian Archives (SCCA)
The Steering Committee on Canada’s Archives was established in 2016 to address several cross-cutting issues facing archives and records professionals today. The Steering Committee includes representation from the ACA, the Association des archivistes du Québec (AAQ), ARMA Canada, Canadian Council of Archives (CCA), Council of Provincial and Territorial Archivists (CPTA), and Library and Archives Canada (LAC). It is co-chaired by the Luciana Duranti (ACA) and Cédric Champagne (AAQ).

Library and Archives Canada (LAC)
As the custodian of our distant past and recent history, Library and Archives Canada (LAC) is a key resource for all Canadians who wish to gain a better understanding of who they are, individually and collectively. LAC acquires, processes, preserves and provides access to our documentary heritage and serves as the continuing memory of the Government of Canada and its institutions.
International Council on Archives (ICA)
The ICA is a neutral, non-governmental organisation, funded by its membership, which operates through the activities of that diverse membership. For over sixty years ICA has united archival institutions and practitioners across the globe to advocate for good archival management and the physical protection of recorded heritage, to produce reputable standards and best practices, and to encourage dialogue, exchange, and transmission of this knowledge and expertise across national borders. With more than 1900 members in 199 countries and territories the Council's ethos is to harness the cultural diversity of its membership to deliver effective solutions and a flexible, imaginative profession.

ARMA Canada is the Canadian Region of ARMA International and, as such, aligns its goals and objectives with ARMA International’s vision and mission, which is: "To provide professionals with the resources, tools, and training (in person or electronically) they need to effectively manage record and information within an established information governance framework."
