This program allows the National Gallery to offer a paid twelve-week study, training and work experience opportunity to five new professionals specializing in Art Museum Education, Museum Collections Management, and Art Librarianship and Archive Practice.



OTTAWA, ON.- The National Gallery of Canada (NGC) and the National Gallery of Canada Foundation announced the five recipients of the TD Bank Financial Group Internships for the 2009-10 academic year. Established through the generous support of the TD Bank Financial Group, this program allows the National Gallery to offer a paid twelve-week study, training and work experience opportunity to five new professionals specializing in Art Museum Education, Museum Collections Management, and Art Librarianship and Archive Practice.

"The TD Internships make it possible for us to foster the development and training of the next generation of Canadian collections managers, librarians, archivists, and museum educators through a formal, paid apprenticeship. We applaud TD Bank Financial Group for their continued support of this invaluable program,” said National Gallery of Canada Director Marc Mayer.

“Museum education enriches the Canadian learning experience,” said TD Bank Financial Group Vice-President of Government and Community Relations Scott Mullin. “We are pleased to support a Canadian landmark like the National Gallery of Canada and its Foundation in their efforts to foster greater learning opportunities for aspiring museum professionals.”

The President and Chief Executive Officer of the National Gallery of Canada Foundation, Marie Claire Morin, noted the vision and leadership demonstrated by TD Bank Financial Group. “This Founding Partner of the Foundation established the National Gallery’s remunerated Internship program, which is unique in this field in Canada, and has since supported it. We are grateful to TD Bank Financial Group for their long-standing commitment to the program and to our institution.”
