The Fredericton Region Museum has a limited number of summer student opportunities each year as funding is dependent upon grants from Young Canada Works, Student Employment Experience Development (SEED) and Canada Summer Jobs. Interested students should research the youth employment programs and ensure that they qualify and, if applicable, are registered with the program candidate banks.
The grant deadlines have come and gone and, as always, the museum has submitted several applications. There is no guarantee that all our applications will be approved, but if you are a student and interested in working at the museum then you should be registered with SEED and Young Canada Works. Canada Summer Jobs does not have registration criteria but visit their website to review their employment guidelines. If any of the grants are approved then we will be posting update to our Facebook page.
Since funding is limited, we suggest that you apply for more than one position if you are interested in working at the museum this summer. Below is our dream list of summer positions; fingers crossed that our applications are approved!

– Manager of Education and Interpretation
