The Internet Archive is now accepting applications from public libraries, local and community archives, and other cultural heritage organizations in Canada to join Community Webs <https://communitywebs.archive-it.org/index.html>, our Community History Web Archiving Program. Community Webs is fully funded by non-profit Internet Archive. There is no cost to participating organizations. 

Community Webs seeks to empower cultural heritage organizations to work with their communities to build community-focused archives of websites, social media and other web content documenting local histories and voices that are typically underrepresented in the historic record. The program offers a free multi-year subscription to the Archive-It <https://archive-it.org/> web archiving service, training and technical support, as well as resources for networking, professional development and in support of scholarly research. 

We currently have 150 participants from across Canada, the US and internationally. Some examples of what our current participants have been up to include: 

Community Archives of Belleville & Hastings County <https://archive-it.org/home/cabhc> is building collections of websites documenting local community groups, media, and elections
Regina Public Library <https://archive-it.org/home/reginalibrary> is creating web collections on local news, arts and culture, and Pride celebrations
The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture @ New York Public Library <https://archive-it.org/home/schomburgcenter> is building collections on the #Syllabus Movement and other aspects of the Black experience in the US and beyond
The Choctaw Cultural Center <https://archive-it.org/home/choctawculturalcenter> is creating web collections on the Nation’s history and culture, Tribal elections, and educational programs
