The Portraits of Digital Canada exhibit presents a selection of images from a large collection of photographs taken for International Business Machines of Canada (IBM Canada) in the last century. Since its incorporation in 1917, IBM Canada has been documenting its corporate history as well as Canada's evolving technological and social landscape in hundreds of thousands of photographs and films. Many of the early photographs have survived thanks to the collecting and curatorial efforts of several remarkable people, most notably Dave Robitaille, former Director of Corporate Citizenship at IBM Canada, and George Dunbar — IBM's staff photographer from 1957 to 1989. The size, scope, and richness of the photographed themes make the IBM Canada Photograph Collection one of the most significant records of Canada's technological development in the last century.
