Located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, the Canadian Museum for Human Rights is the first museum solely dedicated to the evolution, celebration and future of human rights. Its mission is to explore the subject of human rights, with special but not exclusive reference to Canada, in order to enhance the public's understanding of human rights, to promote respect for others, and to encourage reflection and dialogue.
The Museum inspires visitors with the stories of human rights champions taking action for their rights and the rights of others through films, interactive digital displays, artifacts and works of art.
More than 180,000 students have explored human rights through in-person and virtual field trips since the Museum opened. Through this educational programming, students learn how to uphold human rights in their own classrooms and communities.
Power Corporation and its subsidiaries, Great-West Lifeco and IGM Financial have proudly supported the Museum. For us, it stands as a permanent and constant reminder that human rights are integral to our worth as individuals and must be guarded and nurtured for all citizens.
