Making a Difference Every Day

Your support is felt every day of the year at our Museums. Your donations help inspire young minds, share science across Canada, encourage our young innovators, and protect and share our country’s rich innovation heritage.

We are incredibly proud of the impact of programs like Museum on the Go, Let’s Talk Energy, and many more that engage and inspire thousands of young Canadians each year. Thanks to your support, we will continue to connect Canadians with innovative science and technology learning.

In the spirit of “making a difference” every day, I would like to extend a special thanks to all of our monthly donors. Your ongoing support provides us with the funds needed to keep these programs running year round, so we can accomplish even more each day at our Museums.

Many thanks,

We are honoured to count these incredible sisters as champions of our Museums. Read their full story...
