Conferences and events

The CMA delivers exceptional professional development and networking opportunities though its annual National Museum Conference and other events, conferences and symposia. These initiatives are highly sought-after by and essential for Canada's museum community.

CMA National Conference

The theme for CMA2021 is Moving forward, inspired by our President’s call for greater solidarity, connectedness and social responsibility to propel the museum sector ahead.  

We are currently planning for a virtual national conference kicking off May 3, 2021.
