The Canadian Museum of History is now accepting applications for its RBC 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 April 30, 2015.
All training is under the supervision of the Museums’ professional staff in a variety of fields, including research, collections, exhibitions, public programs, corporate affairs, 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, at the Canadian Museum of History and the Canadian War Museum.
Selected candidates will participate in 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, close to 100 Aboriginal trainees have successfully completed the program.
The RBC Aboriginal Training Program in Museum Practices is generously supported by the RBC Emerging Artists Project.
