Virtual Exhibits Investment Program

The Virtual Exhibits investment program helps Canadian museums and heritage organizations develop virtual exhibits and resources that engage online audiences in Canada’s history, heritage and culture.

Product Types

Proposals can be submitted for the following:

  • Virtual Exhibit: A stand-alone production with an interpreted approach to the content.
  • Interactive Resources: A production that requires active play (participation, decision-making and response) like a game, hunt or quiz.
  • Educational Resources: A production that contains educational information that may or may not be tied to a specific curriculum-related topic.
  • Virtual Tour: A production that provides a tour of a physical space, such as a historical site or a physical exhibit.

Value of Investment

The program provides investment up to a maximum of $250,000 for the development of medium- to large-scale projects.


Canadian museums and heritage organizations are eligible. They must be not-for-profit and can be public or private.


The budget of the program is limited. Eligible proposals are evaluated on a competitive basis.
