WHAT WE DO
Our mission is to promote and to support the volunteer component in museums in Canada, while also working at the education of the public about the value of museums and of preserving our heritage.
We offer a number of resources to our members, including our tri-quarterly electronic newsletter, Au Courant, and our monthly memo with volunteer management tools, Volunteer Voices.
Since our foundation in 1977, CFFM has been part of the World Federation of Friends of Museums (WFFM), and in joining us, you join a network of museum friends and volunteers from across the country and the globe.
We work with a group of amazing Canadian and international organizations that help us support museum volunteers.
Canadian Museums Association (CMA)
Alongside the CMA, we present our annual Carol Sprachman Lecture, honouring the memory of an outstanding museum volunteer and CFFM pioneer, and featuring a keynote by a leading Canadian voice of culture. We also work together to award the annual Museum Volunteer Award.
