The article presents the author's views on issues and problems confronting the Canadian Library Association (CLA). The CLA members have time to time been raising their voice on federal issues. As a result, the Canadian government has paid attention and envisaged various tools to get action on the major files. The tools are available on the association's Web site www.cla.ca. To make the officials and decision makers understand the issues, the association has been using conferences, networking and trend reports for successful advocacy. One of such reports include "Perceptions of Libraries and Information Resources (2005)."
