Mission and Vision

The OMMC mission is "to preserve the military heritage of Canada by encouraging the establishment and operation of military museums, to educate museum staff through lectures, discussions, workshops, visits, publications and exhibits, and to cooperate with other public and private bodies devoted to the same or similar purposes." The OMMC vision is "to foster and be part of a national co-operation in a common agenda to preserve and interpret the domestic military history of Canada, set in the wider context of Canadian and international society and human affairs."[1]

Programs

The OMMC is an association of peoples and organizations who operate military museums, promote the Military history of Canada, preserve and display military artifacts and militaria, and re-enact military operations.

The OMMC Inventory of Canadian Military Memorials in Canada was a millennium project to identify and record all Canadian military memorials in Canada. [2]

The OMMC provides courses, meetings and other opportunities for members to explore common problems, provide instruction on new methods in museological practice and broaden the historical knowledge of museum staffs. The OMMC Studies Awards, for example, provide financial support to our members who participate in museology courses, training workshops and personnel development as a means of furthering their education and training. The OMMC newsletter is The Bulletin. [3]

Partners

The OMMC's partners include the Canadian Museums Association (CMA). Member organizations partner with local heritage organizations.
