The Department of Canadian Heritage, or simply Canadian Heritage, is the department of the Government of Canada with responsibility for policies and programs regarding the arts, culture, media, communications networks, official languages (including La Francophonie), status of women, sports (including the 2010 Olympics in Vancouvermarker), and multiculturalism. It also oversees Royal visits of the Queen of Canada and members of the royal family to Canada. It was formerly a part of the Department of Communications, until that department's technical side was merged into the Department of Industry in 1996, forming the Department of Canadian Heritage from its non-technical side. In late 2008, the multiculturalism component of this department was transferred to the Department of Citizenship and Immigration.

The current Minister of Canadian Heritage is the Honourable James Moore.

The department's headquarters are in Terrasses de la Chaudièremarker, in Gatineaumarker, Quebecmarker, across the Ottawa River from the Canadian capital of Ottawamarker.
