Friends of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights

Continuing the Spirit of Compassion

Envisioned by the late Dr. Israel Asper, O.C., O.M, the Canadian Museum for Human Rights was founded on the idea of providing a space to learn about human rights and the importance of protecting them. This spirit continues today thanks to the efforts of Friends of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. As a registered Canadian charity founded in 2002, Friends was created to raise funds for the establishment of a new national museum focused on human rights, and contributed to the Museum’s planning and early development.

Friends is the official fundraiser for the Museum. Please help make a difference today with your donations.

Need help? To make a donation by phone, or for questions about tribute cards or tax receipts, please call 204–289-2003.
