Ingenium Foundation


Business Number: 821123619RR0001

The Foundation supports three national science- and technology-based museums in their goal to inspire Canadians – especially youth – to celebrate Canada’s proud history of innovation and to become tomorrow’s scientists, engineers, entrepreneurial innovators, and science literate citizens.

To make all of this possible, we need the support – personally, corporately – of Canadians like you, both today and tomorrow, to ensure a rich future of science and innovation for all of Canada.

The Foundation supports the onsite and outreach activities of the three museums – the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum, the Canada Aviation and Space Museum, and the Canada Science and Technology Museum – as they tell the human stories of Canadian innovation.

Within the Museums, the Foundation helps to fund programming, exhibitions, and the artifact collection. Outside the Museums, the Foundation supports national travelling exhibitions, distance classroom education, and accessible web activities, including web and mobile apps.

What sets us apart is our rich collection of Canadian science and technology artifacts that are the foundation for our hands-on programs, interactive exhibitions, and national outreach. With our unparalleled collection and our ongoing transformation to becoming a digital organization, we like to say that the three Museums are 'where the past meets the future'.

"To the donors who make this Fellowship possible, I want to say thank you so much. One of my goals when I found the Public History program was to get into a museum environment and some day - as a sparkly, diamonds-on-top goal - I could work at the Canada Science and Technology Museum."
