The Canadian Canoe Museum in Peterborough, Ontario, stewards the world’s largest collection of canoes, kayaks and paddled watercraft. More than 600 in number, the watercraft and their stories have a pivotal role to play in understanding our past – and our collective future. Join our dynamic team as we journey toward our new museum at the water’s edge and be a part of history in the making!
DESCRIPTION: Our Visitor Services/Interpreters play an important role in the museum at its busiest time of the year. This position performs historical interpretation for the public (including guided tours, demonstrations for visitors and orientations to the museum when able – dependent on COVID restrictions), and they will research and perform an interpretive project for the public in the museum’s galleries (this could be a hands-on skill like paddle carving and sewing, or could be oral history, artifact or collection driven – and could be presented online) . They will also perform retail and visitor service duties, assist with programs, new exhibits and site maintenance. They will be expected to follow all Provincial and Federal COVID regulations and will be participating in the museum’s increased cleaning and safety measures.
