Our Mission | Digital Museums Canada

Our Mission

DMC is the largest national investment program dedicated to supporting digital projects.

We have invested in more than 240 projects with nearly $20 million in funding.

We help build digital capacity in Canadian museums and heritage, cultural and Indigenous organizations, giving people living in Canada unique access to diverse stories and experiences.

  • We provide investments between $25,000 and $250,000 for online projects.
  • We help organizations build digital capacity by providing expert guidance in digital accessibility, user experience, and inclusive design.

Digital Museums Canada is managed by the Canadian Museum of History, with the financial support of the Government of Canada.

We supported their project

" …it was a discovery curve for the team to create a truly user-centered online experience accessible to more people… we appreciated the patience and guidance of DMC in helping us achieve the high standards sought by all of us. "
