Costume Museum of Canada
Celebrating fashion, culture and history
The costume we wear each day is influenced by climate, occupation, economic factors, societal role, religion, the task at hand, age, gender and the time in which we live.
Our museum seeks to preserve and exhibit the costumes worn by the people of Canada over the decades.

The Museum has many exciting opportunities for volunteers. We are currently looking for presenters for our Museum in a Suitcase Program. Presenters need to have a passion for fashion or history and be comfortable speaking in front of a group. A presenter training session will be held in late March or April.
