Since Museum Labour’s launch last year, they have been discussing major labour issues in the sector through dialogue with museum colleagues across the country. One thread throughout these conversations was museum workers’ experiences with the Young Canada Works program (YCW). Museum Labour has embarked on research into the YCW and has consulted with other emerging museum professional groups on this topic.
To get a deeper understanding of perspectives, barriers, and participation in YCW, they’re launching a survey on the program. They would appreciate anyone who has participated in the program taking the time to share your thoughts and experiences, regardless of whether you’ve held a YCW position.
The progress of the research will be presented at the National Trust Conference in October 2022 and a full report will be shared with the wider museum community later this year.
If you have any questions about the survey, please contact them via email.
– Open to anyone who has participated in the Young Canada Works program
or has been interested in participating
– Both French and English versions of the survey are available
– Takes 5-10 minutes to complete
Museum Labour would like to thank the Group of Ontario Emerging Museum Professionals (GOEMP), EMP/PEM Canada, Canadian Association for Conservation of Cultural Property, and Canadian Museum Association for their feedback and advice on the survey.
A special thank you to Annick Tremblay for generously providing the French translation.
