We Exist to Help
the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic
Be the Best it Possibly Can Be!
The Canadian Maritime Heritage Foundation has a special connection with the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. Our primary mandate is to help the Maritime Museum gather the resources to become the best it possibly can be.
We work with the Museum and other partners to help raise public awareness of the richness and diversity our maritime heritage and to celebrate its continuing relevance to the economic, social and cultural development of this region and our country.
We place a particular emphasis on supporting inclusive maritime heritage programs and initiatives that break new ground, make room for a variety of perspectives, and seek to serve the full diversity of people in our community, especially those who have been too often marginalized.
