Ingenium governs three national museums in Ottawa: the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum, the Canada Aviation and Space Museum, and the Canada Science and Technology Museum. As a leader and partner of choice across the STEAM ecosystem, Ingenium and its museums strived to foster partnerships with various public and private sector organizations advancing its goal to collaborate to innovate. Ingenium also focused its efforts to remove barriers to its programs and activities by improving physical, cognitive, sensory, and socioeconomic accessibility to improve access for all. Lastly, to strengthen its foundations, Ingenium continued to position its three museums as destinations of choice and preserve the national collection for future generations.
