They have been found on the front lines, serving visitors in various programs or the Museum Shop, and behind-the-scenes, helping maintain our collections. Our volunteers are all ages, come from all backgrounds, and are passionate about sharing their time, talents and energy. Some volunteers have been with us since we first opened!

Our volunteers can work remotely as well.  There are numerous ways to support the organization while working from home.  Our Volunteer Coordinator, Susan Suttie, would love to hear from you about the type of volunteer opportunities you are seeking to match you with the right project!

"Since 1998, I have been an advocate and a strong financial supporter of the Canmore Museum.  I am very pleased and proud with how the Museum has progressed over the last few years.  I feel that the Museum is a very worthwhile facility to lend my support."
