Join us and share your voice. These “Community Voices” will be publicly displayed until October 2022 as part of MONOVA’s Truth and Reconciliation Day activities.

New Voices Volunteer Program

Are you new to North Vancouver or new to Canada?

Through MONOVA’s New Voices Volunteer Program, newcomers will be able to volunteer at the Museum and work together to develop a community exhibit or event.

Starting September 2022, the group will meet weekly at MONOVA to learn more about North Vancouver’s community and Museum collection. The culmination of the program will be a community exhibit or event, developed by the group, in early 2023.

This program is open to non-permanent residents, new immigrants and international students with a student visa who wish to gain more experience in a Canadian setting.

This program will be delivered in English, and everyone is welcome to attend.
