Museums Canada 2023 Summit

March 26, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - March 28, 2023 @ 12:00 pm

What is Museums Canada?

A group of museum professionals have come together identifying a need in the museum sector. Many museums are now reeling from the effects of the pandemic and are operating in crisis mode.

Museums Canada believes there is a need for dialogue, mentorship, networking, and support, not for museums but for those who work at museums or in the broader sector.

In response to that need, the Museums/Musées Canada Summit will take place in Halifax from March 26 – 28.
