2018-2019 Call for nominations: Inscriptions to the Canada Memory of the World Register

In collaboration with its Canadian Advisory Committee for Memory of the World, the Canadian Commission for UNESCO (CCUNESCO) is pleased to launch the second Call for Nominations for inscriptions on the Canada Memory of the World Register. This Register recognizes significant documentary heritage related to Canada and its peoples, and is one of the vehicles of the UNESCO Memory of the World Program which aims at preserving and providing access to documentary heritage as the embodiment of the memory of humanity.

UNESCO has been designated lead UN agency for the 2019 International Year of Indigenous Languages, which aims to draw attention to the urgent need to raise awareness of Indigenous languages and to support their preservation, maintenance and revitalization. Therefore, the Committee would like to put special emphasis on forthcoming proposals relating to this matter. The Committee also welcomes proposals related to all types of documentary heritage.

2018-2019 Appel à candidatures: Inscriptions au Registre de la Mémoire du monde du Canada

En collaboration avec son Comité consultatif canadien de la Mémoire du monde, la Commission canadienne pour l’UNESCO (CCUNESCO) est heureuse de lancer le deuxième Appel à candidatures pour le Registre de la Mémoire du monde du Canada. Ce Registre reconnait l’importance du patrimoine documentaire relié au Canada et ses Peuples, et est un des vecteurs du Programme Mémoire du monde de l’UNESCO, qui a pour but de préserver le patrimoine documentaire et d’en permettre l’accès afin d’incarner la mémoire de l’humanité.

Alors que l’UNESCO a été désignée responsable de l’Année internationale des langues autochtones en 2019,  elle vise à attirer l’attention sur l’urgence de sensibiliser les gens aux langues autochtones et de préserver, de maintenir et de revitaliser ces dernières. Par conséquent, le Comité aimerait mettre de l’emphase sur ce sujet pour les propositions à venir. Le Comité encourage également les propositions portant sur tout autre patrimoine documentaire.

Nous invitons tous les individus, les institutions privées et publiques ainsi que les organisations et les communautés à consulter le site Web de la CCUNESCO pour toute information sur le processus de nomination. La date limite pour les déclarations d’intérêt est le 1 mars 2019.
