Investment Streams

The Virtual Museum of Canada (VMC)

Managed by the Canadian Museum of History (CMH), the Virtual Museum of Canada is a federally funded investment program that helps build digital capacity in Canadian museums and heritage organizations, and gives Canadians unique access to diverse stories and experiences.

Funding is available for modest to ambitious bilingual online products with interpreted content and an engaging user experience. The application process is competitive but straightforward, with experts on hand to provide feedback on ideas and guide the development of funded projects.
