The Virtual Museum of Canada (VMC) [1] is Canada's national virtual museum. With over 2,500 Canadian museums, the VMC brings together Canada's museums regardless of size or geographical location [2]. The VMC includes virtual exhibits [3], free online games [4], educational material [5], and over 580000 images [6]. The resources are bilingual -available in both French and English. While the content on the Virtual Museum of Canada is created by Canadian museums, it is administered by the Canadian Heritage Information Network which is an agency within the Department of Canadian Heritage[7].

The Virtual Museum of Canada provides an online environment for Canadian communities to tell their stories and preserve their history. One of the most popular sections of the VMC is their Community Memories section [8]. This is a place where smaller Canadian community museums, who are mostly volunteer run, can create online exhibits about their history.
