History

Children's Design International Collection is the brainchild of Léo Beaulieu, who was inspired by a special education teacher, a twenty-year career in the arts sector, and a new commitment in education. After a long reflection and discussions with family, friends and colleagues, a journey into saving and sharing the countless images that would otherwise vanish began.

Geographical and cultural context

The world is the playground. Twentieth century objects are particularly at risk of being lost.

Mandates/Sources of authority

Children's Design International Collection was federally incorporated in February 2018 and obtained charitable registration in November of the same year, under Section 149.1 of the Income Tax Act.

Administrative structure

A volunteer board oversees four standing committees: Governance Committee, Data Governance Committee, Fundraising Committee, and Professional and Community Outreach Committee. Other volunteers assist with programs, such as the Collection Partners Program.

Buildings

Outsourced

Holdings

Currently about 500 objects from seven family fonds, spanning a period from 1940s until now.
