Consortia Canada 
Consortia Canada is an informal group of library consortia representing all library types - public, post-secondary, health, special, and K-12 schools - working together to license electronic resources that are useful and relevant to members across the country. Consortia Canada's primary goal is to contribute to the collection and organization of information and knowledge in digital form for the benefit of all Canadians.

Resource Sharing Agreement
In April 2016, ​CAUL/CBUA, COPPUL, OCUL, and BCI updated its Resource Sharing Agreement, which extends reciprocal interlibrary loan/document delivery privileges. This document includes the following updates:

  • In January 2017, Appendix C was updated to reflect all of the codes for the College of the North Atlantic
  • In July 2016, the Appendix B was updated to reflect the withdrawl of the University of Toronto from the agreement.
  • In July 2016, Appendix D was updated to reflect the reintegration of the "Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec - QMBN" to the list of covered institutions as it somehow disappeared in the April 2016 update.
