The Canadian Conservation Institute (CCI) and the Canadian Heritage Information Network (CHIN) work with heritage professionals and institutions to help build their capacity for conserving and preserving objects and collections. CCI-CHIN offers webinars, which cover a variety of topics and appeal to a broad range of individuals. The webinars are designed to encourage questions and interaction between the presenters and participants. Webinars offered will vary from year to year, based on staff expertise and availability.

Each webinar may consist of one or more sessions of one to two hours in length and incorporate presentations from CCI-CHIN staff, discussion and sharing opportunities as well as question periods. A webinar series will cover more in-depth information on a specific topic.
