Our Mission

We empower a national network of organizations who champion Science and Innovation by making science approachable, relevant, and accessible.

Our Vision

Canada has a thriving science and innovation culture of engaged citizens.

A single voice before government.

The Canadian Association of Science Centres (CASC) was founded in 1985 to create synergy among Canada's science centres and science-related museums, to assist in finding solutions to the challenges faced by these important public institutions, and to provide a single voice before government.

Over 50 members engaging 10 million visitors.

We are a national platform for Canada’s Science Centres/Museums and informal science engagement.  We represent over 50 institutions across Canada that attract 10 million visitors annually.

More than 1,500 science communicators across Canada.

The workforce across our membership represents more than 1,500 science communicators and support staff in addition to more than 10,000 volunteers.

The CASC office is situated in Robinson Huron Treaty territory and the traditional territory of the Atikameksheng Anishnawbek. We pay respect to their traditions, ways of knowing and acknowledge their many contributions to the innovations in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Clearly and overtly this gratitude must be demonstrated in our collective commitment to truth and reconciliation, by working to transform existing relationships, with open dialogue, mutual understanding and respectful collaborations
