About the Art Canada Institute and Our Education Program
Launched in 2013, the Art Canada Institute is the only national institution whose mandate is to promote the study of an inclusive multi-vocal Canadian art history to as broad an audience as possible, in both English and French, within Canada and internationally. The ACI works with more than fifty of Canada’s leading art historians, curators, and visual culture experts. We are creating a central digital resource to tell the world about Canada’s most important works of art: we function as an online art museum, a digital library, and an interactive Canadian art encyclopedia. Our education resources are interdisciplinary, and each of our expert-authored guides follows national education recommendations and is available in both French and English.
