In an increasingly digital heritage community, how comfortable is your organization with tackling technology? Over the last year, the Ontario Historical Society has conducted the OHS Reach project, funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation, to plan for the modernization of our own programs and services… and we’ve learned a lot!

Please join us to:

  • learn about our tech planning process and experience
  • be inspired (we hope!) to pursue your own projects
  • receive a specially chosen collection of solid resources to support you

Who should attend? Ontario’s heritage community, OHS’s affiliates and members, and those interested in technology improvement projects for non-profits.

Topics covered will include website building, improving accessibility, choosing a content management system, IT assessments, finding and working with tech consultants, and more.

Webinar FAQ


-What is a webinar?

A webinar is a training session done entirely online. Participants are sent a web link in order to join the webinar, which lets them watch the presentation while listening to the speaker. There is no need to travel – you can join a webinar from the comfort of your own home!

-What kind of computer is needed to participate?

Most modern computers are equipped with the necessary components to participate in our webinars – you can join from your desktop computer, laptop, tablet or mobile device! In general, you need to have speakers and a moderately fast internet connection. You do not need a microphone to participate, as you’ll just be listening in rather than speaking!
