Canada's History Webinar

Canada’s History is excited to tell you about an upcoming webinar, designed especially for those of you who work in museums, archives, or other community heritage organizations.
Join them for a presentation by experienced heritage professionals, as they explore some of the most common issues and opportunities faced by heritage organizations today. The webinar will also provide you with a chance to interact with the guest presenter and to meet new colleagues from across the country — all from the comfort of your home or office!

On November 29 at 2:00pm, EST, museum curator Madeleine Callaghan will tell us about the Scarborough Museum's successful youth mentorship program in her presentation "Youth in Museums: Open the door and let 'em in."

The webinar is free, but space is limited. Visit to register and reserve your spot today.

Join Madeleine as she takes you through their multi-year youth diversity project, made possible with funding from the Citizenship and Immigration Inter-Action Program. Youth new to Canada integrate with Canadian youth, and together do everything from performing historical theatre to working on photo projects inspired by the museum's collection. These experiences pave the way for youth to develop social and employability skills. Learn how one small museum is making an impact and how you can do the same.
