Thanks to the important contribution of this country's heritage institutions, the Artefacts Canada database contains more than 4 million object records and more than 1 million images from Canadian museums. This important source of information is made available to museum professionals and the public.
If you are part of a Canadian organization with automated collections information, we invite you to participate in this initiative and add your collections to those of Artefacts Canada.
Art objects, ethnological and historical artefacts, and much more.
