About VMC

"Engaging audiences of all ages in Canada's diverse heritage through a dynamic Internet service freely available to the public in French and English."

Mission Statement

The Virtual Museum of Canada celebrates the stories and treasures that have come to define Canada over the centuries. Here you will find innovative multimedia content that educates, inspires and fascinates!

This groundbreaking gateway is the result of a strong partnership between Canada's vast museum community and the Department of Canadian Heritage. Spearheading the enterprise is the Canadian Heritage Information Network, a special operating agency of the Department of Canadian Heritage, that for thirty years has enabled the heritage community to benefit from cutting-edge information technologies.

The VMC harnesses the power of the Internet to bring Canada's rich and diverse heritage into our homes, schools and places of work. This revolutionary medium allows for perspectives and interpretations that are both original and revealing.


In response to the growing use of the Internet by teachers, the VMC is launching a pilot project, AGORA-The VMC Learning Centre, in the spring 2007. This initiative will provide Canada's educators and learners with an interactive online environment that offers a compilation of learning resources (text, images, video and multimedia) and tangible outcomes, created by Canadian Institutions.

The events, discoveries and masterpieces presented through the Web are but the tip of the iceberg. The pioneering museums behind the VMC invite you to continue your journey of discovery by visiting as many of them as you can!

In the meantime, bookmark this Web site to enjoy the many offerings that Canada's heritage institutions are placing online. VMC is an ever evolving place, where fresh content is always at the door. The VMC will continue to nurture the development of digital content that reflects Canadian experiences in all their splendour.
