Apply Now for CCI Services in 2020–2021
The Canadian Conservation Institute (CCI) offers conservation treatment services to Canadian museums, art galleries, archives, historic sites and Indigenous cultural centres. These include treatments to prevent further deterioration of objects, to aid in their interpretation or to re-establish their culturally significant qualities. Services can range from minimal stabilization to extensive restoration.
Applications for treatment services can be submitted at any time and are reviewed once each year. If you wish to have your objects treated at CCI in 2020–2021, please apply by October 15, 2019. Please note that the completion date for selected objects will depend on the complexity of the treatment.
The following types of objects will be considered for treatment in 2020–2021:
- paintings and decorative arts
- paper (works of art on paper, photos, archival materials and books)
- historical, cultural, religious and Indigenous objects
- metal objects (historical and modern)
The selection of objects for treatment is based on CCI’s assessment criteria. Also, please note that missing information can disqualify an application. For this reason, we encourage you to submit your application well before the October 15 deadline for a preliminary review. This will allow for time to add missing information, if necessary.
Please note that clients are responsible for all costs of transporting objects to and from CCI, including adequate crating, shipping and insurance.
If you require assistance in preparing your application, please contact Marie-Hélène Foisy.
