The DHCP was created in 2015 to provide financial assistance for activities that enhance the visibility of, and access to, materials held by Canada's local documentary heritage institutions.
The program also aims to increase the capacity of local institutions to sustainably preserve, promote and showcase the country's documentary heritage.
