    School program details

    Students will learn about human rights in Canada by discovering the inspiring stories of individuals who have created change, and by learning how different communities express concepts of human rights and responsibilities in diverse ways. Students will be exposed to age-appropriate key concepts about human rights as they focus on specific Canadian human rights stories and Indigenous perspectives on human rights. 

    Students will:

    Learn that human rights protections we enjoy in Canada today were fought for and won through the effective actions and voices of many groups and individuals.

    Experience exhibits and the inspiring Museum architecture as if they were at the Museum in person.

    Interact with a Museum guide and ask questions to better understand how they can take action for human rights.

    Understand that Canadians are individually and collectively responsible for protecting their rights and the rights of others.
