Canadian Collections Care Survey

Published: Tuesday, May 29, 2018 - 3 years, 4 months ago


The objective of this survey is to examine the current state of collections care and conservation in Canada. This will provide data that can be used by institutions for advocacy, fundraising and programming purposes. It has been developed by the Canadian Association for Conservation of Cultural Property (CAC) and by the Canadian Association of Professional Conservators (CAPC).
Who should answer this survey:  Staff from museums, libraries, archives, art galleries or cultural centres with heritage collections that are accessible to the public. Only one response per institution please. The respondent should be familiar with the collection and facilities, and be able to obtain basic financial and staffing information.
Privacy and confidentiality statement
All responses, including any personal information you provide, will be kept strictly confidential. Your input will only be used in combination with the responses of others participating in the survey. Our research examines data associated with groups of respondents. Your individual responses are not shown to anyone. Open text answers could be shared in reports - but always anonymously.
