The Canadian Industrial Heritage Centre (CIHC) is a non-profit registered charity dedicated to the preservation and promotion of Canada's industrial heritage.

Since we are located in Brantford, Ontario (once the third largest exporter of manufactured goods in Canada, following Montreal and Toronto) we have begun collecting information about Brantford and surronding area industries.


Our office is located at Royal Victoria Place, 136 Dalhousie Street, in downtown Brantford.

Mailing address:  P.O. Box 23055, Brantford, Ontario N3T 6K4


Our Honorary Patron is William H. Cockshutt.

The CIHC acknowledges the support of the Brant Community Foundation for assisting in our website design and up-date and the Ontario Trillium Foundation for a grant to hire the CIHC Executive Director.

We wish to acknowledge the generous support of Leigh Sherry and LJS & Associates, Royal Victoria Place, for assistance in providing administrative space.

CIHC is an affiliate member of the Ontario Historical Society and a member of the Brantford Museum and Galleries Association.
