Call for Applications – Aboriginal Training Program in Museum Practices

Call for Applications – Canadian Museum of Civilization Aboriginal Training Program in Museum Practices – Deadline March 15, 2008

Gatineau, Quebec, February 4, 2008 — The Canadian Museum of Civilization is now accepting applications for its Aboriginal Training Program in Museum Practices (ATPMP). This eight-month program offers professional and technical training in museum practices to Aboriginal People from across Canada. The deadline for applications is March 15, 2008.

All training is under the supervision of the Museum’s professional staff in a variety of fields, including conservation, archaeology, documentation of artifacts, archives, collections, ethnology, history and administration. The experience Interns gain while at the Museum is valuable to both themselves and their First Nation, as they will be able to play a vital role in maintaining and sharing their culture with their community and others. This internship offers a means for the Interns to return to their community and assume a leadership role in cultural resource management. Training is available in both official languages.

This is the fifteenth consecutive year for the Aboriginal Training Program in Museum Practices. The Canadian Museum of Civilization Corporation (CMCC) established the ATPMP in September 1993 in response to recommendations in the 1992 Task Force Report on Museums and First Peoples. Since its inception, the CMCC Training Program has enabled over 70 Aboriginal trainees to complete the program successfully.
