    The Museum of Dufferin has created a resource guide on Indigenous History and Treaty Lands in Dufferin County. It offers an introduction to groups that populated our region historically, and an abundance of recommended resources for further learning and outreach. Our consultation process is still ongoing, and we will update this resource as new information and insights become available.

    Heat Waves. Flooding. Snow Storms. Drought. People are drawn to extreme events. Still more wonder how climate change will impact them. Many still believe that it isn’t real. 2019 was the hottest year on record!

    The Museum of Dufferin has partnered with Climate Action in Dufferin to create a digital exhibition to explore one of today’s hottest topics: climate change. Drawing on the latest science, you will discover what climate change means for us here in Dufferin County, from the local impacts to the community solutions that can help us reduce our emissions and adapt to changing climate conditions.
