Aboriginal Training Program in Museum Practices
DEADLINE MARCH 15, 2009


Gatineau, Quebec, February 26, 2009 — The Canadian Museum of Civilization Corporation, which is comprised of the Canadian Musuem of Civilization and the Canadian War Museum, 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, Métis and Inuit people from across Canada. The deadline for applications is March 15, 2009.


All training is under the supervision of the Museums’ 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 sixteenth 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 75 Aboriginal trainees have completed the program successfully.
