Lindsay is in the heart of the Kawartha Lakes recreational area.

All three positions require completed post-secondary courses, either in History, Museum Studies or Womens Studies.


Curatorial Assistant (CA) Position One will focus on helping organize and execute an inventory of museum artifacts as the museum transitions from a collection-based to a programming based institution.


CA Position Two will co-ordinate travel of our Their Votes Counted Canadian Heritage-funded exhibit about the first women to vote in a Canadian federal election


CA Position Three will involve researching background for a play being produced about the 1919 ‘Chinese Riots’ in Lindsay, from a feminist perspective.


Deadline for all applications is May 25, 2017. Please apply through the YCW webstie, CHIN, or directly to the museum at : info@oldegaolmuseum.ca
