Volunteer Opportunities

McMichael Canadian Art Collection is looking for new Docents!
We are seeking motivated individuals to serve as Volunteer Docents. The ideal candidate is people-oriented and enthusiastic about introducing school groups and adults to Canadian art and the McMichael Collection.

What does a Docent do?
During the 2015/16 school year, McMichael Docents and Educators provided tours for more than 30,000 students and adult visitors.  Our teaching philosophy emphasizes an interactive approach, encouraging an exchange between the Docent and gallery guests. Tours provide exciting opportunities to view a variety of special exhibitions at the McMichael, as well as the permanent collection which includes artworks by the Group of Seven and their contemporaries and Indigenous artists.

The McMichael Canadian Art Collection has two Docent groups: School Programs & Gallery Tours. School Programs Docents are responsible for conducting tours for school groups on weekdays. Gallery Tour Docents are responsible for giving permanent collection and special exhibition tours to adult and special interest groups, primarily on weekends.

If you are interested in applying to be a part of our Docent program,
please email before November 15, 2016.
