The Government of Canada is providing the Corporation of the Town of New Tecumseth with $4,591 through the Museums Assistance Program to support improvements to the Museum on the Boyne's collections management and environmental monitoring practices. This support will allow the Museum to migrate their data from its outdated system, confirm data integrity, and catalogue all of their collection in professional software.
The Honourable Dr. Kellie Leitch, Minister of Labour and Minister of Status of Women and Member of Parliament (Simcoe-Grey), made the announcement today on behalf of the Honourable Shelly Glover, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages.
-- The Museum on the Boyne, located in Riverdale Park in Alliston, houses a mixed collection of household, agricultural, industrial, and archival artifacts that depict life in South Simcoe from the time of settlement to the present day. -- The Museum's children's programming allows young visitors to learn about local history in both a structured and hands-on, creative learning environment.
"I'm proud of our Government's support for Canadian museums. We are ensuring that Canadians will have access to our rich heritage today and in the future."
