Canadian Heritage Information Network


Canadian Heritage Information Network

The Canadian Heritage Information Network (CHIN) is a Canadian government-supported organization that provides a networked interface to Canada's heritage, largely through the World Wide Web. It aims to give access to Canada's heritage for both Canadians and a worldwide audience, by supporting the development, presentation and preservation of Canada's digital heritage. CHIN is based in Gatineau (until 2002, Hull), in Quebec but also in the greater Ottawa area.

In French, CHIN is known as the "Réseau Canadien d'information sur le patrimoine" (RCIP). It provides bilingual information for all its resources.

CHIN was the first national organization to participate in the Virtual Library museums pages (VLmp) online museums directory, now supported by ICOM.
