Aboriginal Training Program in Museum Practices

DEADLINE MARCH 15, 2011

Gatineau, Quebec, February 15, 2011 — The Canadian Museum of Civilization Corporation is now accepting applications for its Aboriginal Training Program in Museum Practices. This eight-month program offers professional and technical training in museum practices to First Nations, M├ętis and Inuit people from across Canada. The deadline for applications is March 15, 2011.

All training is under the supervision of the Museum’s professional staff in a variety of fields, including research, collections, exhibitions, public programs, public affairs and publishing, development and museum services. The objective of this internship is to offer practical experience for Aboriginal people who would like to broaden their skills in various aspects of museum work. Training is available in both official languages.

This is the eighteenth consecutive year for the Aboriginal Training Program in Museum Practices. It was established by the Canadian Museum of Civilization Corporation in September 1993 in response to recommendations in the 1992 Task Force Report on Museums and First Peoples. Since its inception, some 80 Aboriginal trainees have completed the program successfully.
