The Archive of the Jesuits in Canada (AJC) is seeking a candidate for the position of Project Archivist, Special Collections / Archiviste de projet, collections spéciales. This is a 24-week internship, projected to begin on September 10, 2018 and ending March 29, 2019 (two-week unpaid holiday season in December). The internship is at The Archive of the Jesuits in Canada / Archive des jésuites au Canada in Montréal, Québec. The hourly wage is $16.00 (35 hours per week; 24 week project).

La « langue principale » s'entend de la langue dans laquelle le candidat est le plus apte à travailler, soit français ou anglais. Le candidat doit également avoir une certaine connaissance du français/anglais. The candidate can work in either French or English, and some knowledge of the second language (French or English as relevant) will be required.


The AJC is the official repository of the records of the Jesuit presence in Canada. Many Jesuits were teachers, scholars, historians and writers whose fonds (including their libraries and teaching materials) were acquired by the AJC upon their passing. The Jesuits operated several schools in Canada and collected teaching resources, library holdings and resource collections to support their teaching activities. They also operated one Residential School at Spanish, Ontario: some annotated text books, religious teaching materials, and Indigenous language tools (especially in Ojibwé) have made their way to the stewardship of the AJC.


The AJC requires the participation of an intern to work along-side staff to identify selection criteria, conduct an archival appraisal, describe/catalogue, process, selectively-digitize and rehouse this material. The objective is to reduce duplication, identify the most pertinent and unique materials, rationalize holdings in relationship to other archival repositories and libraries, and finally to make the retained holdings more accessible to researchers. The intern will prepare RAD descriptions, inventories and will undertake some library catalogue entries.


Qualifications include recent graduation from a Masters program in archival studies, information studies, public history or art history; knowledge of archival principles and theory; knowledge of preservation and handling of archival records; some knowledge of digitization and digital asset management is preferable; some knowledge of rare books and special collections is an asset; patience, attention to detail and accuracy are essential; ability to work collaboratively in a team environment; ability to lift 30 lb. boxes. The candidate must be fluent in either English or French; writing skills in either English or French; some knowledge of the second language (French or English) is required to function in this bilingual working environment.

Candidates from the Government of Canada’s job equity groups are encouraged to apply. / Les candidats ou candidates visés par l’équité en matière d’emploi du Gouvernement du Canada sont invités à présenter une demande.

The application deadline is July 6, 2018. Please submit applications by email to:
