Giving Tuesday
Your day to celebrate the Ontario Museum community
On November 29, 2022, the Ontario Museum Association is taking time to celebrate the Ontario museum community. Please join us in celebrating by making a gift today!

You can contribute to the Ontario museum community and support of the Ontario Museum Association by making a donation to:
OMA's 50th Anniversary campaign
Paul O. Robertson Memorial Bursary

Giving matters because it helps the Ontario Museum Association advocate for the vital role of Ontario's museums to society, promote emerging best practices through professional development, strengthen a collaborative network of museums, and foster a culture of innovation and excellence.

As pandemic challenges persist, the Ontario Museum Association continues to support museums across the province as they work to reopen safely and renew community relationships. Together with partners, the OMA presents webinars in response to the current challenges facing museums, including how to care for heritage collections, navigating federal support programs, approaches to online engagement and reopening planning.

In this critical time, the OMA launched initiatives to support the digital transformation of Ontario museums. An ongoing collaboration with George Brown College serves to embrace forward thinking and consider new approaches to help envision a museum of the future in a digital world. The OMA has formed a Museum Digital Advisory Committee engaged in these digital initiatives including the Small Bytes: Supporting Digitization in Ontario’s Smaller and Rural Museums initiative - providing accessible, high-quality online training opportunities to build digital capacity and skills.

We encourage you to give in a way that fits your preference.
Every contribution adds to the collective strength of our sector!

Thank you for your advocacy on our behalf - big or small

Learning how to pivot together during COVID

The OMA was the first organization my professor presented to our class (back in 2017). It was wonderful to attend first conference, network with my class and create relationships. So excited to be back in person!

What is your future wish for the OMA and/or Ontario museums?

As an organization of provincial scope, the Ontario Museum Association recognizes that its members and community live and work on the lands and territories of Indigenous peoples. Toronto, where the OMA offices are located, is the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit, Haudenosaunee and the Huron Wendat. We wish to express our gratitude for the resources we are using and pay respect to the rich and ongoing Indigenous history of what is now Ontario and Canada.
