The Canadian Society for Digital Humanities is a Canadian scholarly association. Its full name is CSDH-SCHN or Society for Digital Humanities/Société canadienne pour les humanités numériques. The CSDH-SCHN was formerly known as COCH/COSH or Consortium for Computers in the Humanities/Consortium pour ordinateurs en sciences humaines.

The Society for Digital Humanities/Société pour l'étude des médias interactifs (SDH/SEMI) meets every year as part of the Congress of the Social Sciences and Humanities organized by the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences.

"Our objective is to draw together humanists who are engaged in digital and computer-assisted research, teaching, and creation. The society fosters work in the digital humanities in Canada's two official languages, and champions interaction between Canada's anglophone and francophone communities, in all areas reflected by its diverse membership: providing opportunities for publication, presentation, and collaboration; supporting a number of educational venues and international initiatives; acting as an advisory and lobbying force to local, national, and international research and research-funding bodies; working with allied organisations; and beyond."
