Why Work for the Museum?

Be part of a great team!

Come be inspired every day, as you walk through the doors of one of the most breathtaking buildings in Canada. To create a home for human rights education, the building uses images from the Canadian landscape: mountains, clouds, Prairie grass, ice and snow. 

The Museum is a marvel of modern design, but it is so much more than just a building—no matter how amazing. This is a place to learn about human rights and to engage in respectful discussion and dialogue. And when you work at the Museum, you take part in that discussion. You take part in the excitement. You take part in the vision.

Welcome to the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. Welcome to an amazing work space full of inspiring opportunities. 

What it means to work at the Museum

We asked our staff what it means to them to work here, and here’s what they said:

“When you work at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, you…”

Work in an architectural marvel

At the Museum, human rights stories are woven into the very fabric of the building. It’s a truly unique workplace. The green building combines beauty and accessibility. It promotes good health and active commuting. Its very location—The Forks in Winnipeg, where people have gathered for thousands of years—inspires us. 

Make a difference

At the Museum, we strive to create inspiring encounters with human rights. We connect people. We inspire conversations that give birth to new ideas. We promote universal respect and basic freedoms. We’re helping to make a better future. 

Form part of a first-class team

At the Museum, we strive for a workplace where respect, integrity, service and excellence are important. Our team is made up of talented people who are passionate about their work. They come from different places and backgrounds. They bring different skills and ideas to the table. But here they work together with a shared vision and common purpose. Together, we are advancing human rights.

Experience challenge and growth

The Museum is a one-of-a-kind project that makes for a climate of constant learning and growth. We work in an innovative world with cutting-edge technology. We benefit from ongoing education. We grow through professional development. The very subject matter we deal with challenges us to move forward.
