National Heritage Digitization Strategy (NHDS) Strategic Planning Survey

July 14, 2021

Updated: August 16, 2021

The deadline to complete the survey has been extended to September 7, 2021.

The Executive Committee of the National Heritage Digitization Strategy (NHDS) is embarking on strategic planning. The goal of this strategic planning process is to refine the mission and vision for the NHDS and update the NHDS’ ambitious community-driven mandate that was first established in 2016. The aim for the NHDS strategic planning process is to identify short-term and long-term projects and initiatives to be undertaken by the NHDS, understand community-driven priorities, and assist in shaping the organizational structure of NHDS going forward.

This strategic planning exercise is informed by the Business Plan published by the NHDS in 2018, while also recognizing that the landscape of digitized heritage material in Canada continues to evolve. This is a process of co-creation and iteration, and we invite you to provide feedback on the proposed strategic planning framework. Recognizing that engagement can take many forms, in addition to this survey, the NHDS will be holding a variety of engagement opportunities throughout the year, including an open community call planned for fall 2021, and we encourage your participation.
