Investment Streams

The 2020 call for proposals in the Small, Medium and Large investment streams is now CLOSED.

Managed by the Canadian Museum of History, the Virtual Museum of Canada (VMC) 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.

There are three investment streams. The Small investment stream provides a $15,000 investment, and a template, to create a virtual exhibit. The Medium stream provides an investment of $50,000 to $150,000, and the Large stream an investment of $150,000 to $250,000. Both of these streams require institutions to work with the technology provider of their choice.
