The CARTO 23 Conference is made possible thanks to many volunteers from the Association of Canadian Map Libraries and Archives (ACMLA) and the Canadian Cartographic Association (CCA).
The Association of Canadian Map Libraries and Archives (ACMLA) actively serves as the representative professional group for Canadian map librarians, cartographic archivists and others interested in geographic information in all formats.
Since its inception in 1967, the achievements of the Association have been notable, including a vigorous publishing program, development of professional standards and international cataloguing rules, and efforts to increase national awareness of issues concerning spatial information and recognition of the contribution of map libraries and cartographic archives.
The Canadian Cartographic Association (CCA) is a non-profit association that promotes the disciplines and professions of cartography and Geographic Information Science in Canada. Their broad membership represents academia, all levels of Government and private industry, and includes fellow cartographers from coast to coast, and Internationally.
The CCA host annual meetings, provide networking opportunities, create a variety of publications to promote geography awareness and map making, and help improve the use of cartographic materials through education.
