The Documentary and Heritage Communities Program (DHCP) ensures that Canada’s continuing memory is documented and accessible to current and future generations by adopting a collaborative approach with local documentary heritage communities. The program is delivered in the form of contributions that support the development of Canada’s local archival and library communities by increasing their capacity to preserve, provide access to and promote local documentary heritage. Additionally, the Program provides opportunities for local documentary heritage communities to evolve and remain sustainable and strategic.
The DHCP provides financial assistance to the Canadian documentary heritage community for activities that:
- increase access to, and awareness of Canada’s local documentary heritage institutions and their holdings; and
- increase the capacity of local documentary heritage institutions to better sustain and preserve Canada’s documentary heritage.
