The Canadian Museum of History is now accepting applications for its RBC Aboriginal Training Program in Museum Practices. This eight-month program, the only one of its kind in Canada, offers professional and technical training in museum practices to First Nations, Métis and Inuit people from across Canada. The deadline for applications is February 29, 2016.
All training is under the supervision of the Museums’ professional staff in a variety of fields, including research, collections, exhibitions, public programs, corporate affairs, 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 twenty-third consecutive year for the Aboriginal Training Program in Museum Practices. It was established in September 1993 in response to recommendations in the 1992 Task Force Report on Museums and First Peoples. Since its inception, more than 90 trainees from over 40 different Aboriginal Nations across Canada have completed the program successfully.
Work of the Canadian History Museum is made possible in part through financial support of the Government of Canada.
