Steampunk Canada is a national organization created to bring together all steampunks across Canada. It is a place for steampunks to find their local groups, local events, artisans, and steampunk news.
We are working to promote steampunk in a variety of venues including a number of blogs and websites, social media, local events and conventions, large and small. We have brought steampunk to the attention of publishers and major media companies and we are campaigning to bring this community and genre to the attention of all Canadians through more conventional exhibits.
