Our Mission

The Capital Heritage Connexion empowers Ottawa’s heritage sector with expertise, tools and resources; connects its heritage networks; and represents it to the broader community.


The Capital Heritage Connexion (CHC) is an umbrella organization serving heritage stakeholders in Canada’s Capital.  The CHC plays a leading role in developing and sustaining the Capital’s heritage sector and ensuring local residents have access to heritage.

To achieve its objectives, the CHC works closely with museums, archives, historical and genealogical societies, cultural communities, heritage buildings and sites as well as a range of heritage scholars, supporters and advocates.  The CHC also acts as an important liaison with all three levels of government.
