Museum Representatives Gather on Parliament Hill
Museum and gallery representatives from across Canada gathered on Parliament Hill on November 27, 2012 for the fourth annual Canadian Museums Day. Organised by the Canadian Museums Association (CMA), the event brought together museum professionals, trustees and volunteers in order to discuss the importance of museums in Canada with Parliamentarians and key decision-makers.
"This year, the federal government has demonstrated considerable support for museums and galleries in Canada," said John McAvity, Executive Director of the CMA. "However, we believe it's important to further invest in Canada's museums and galleries in order to ensure our cultural sector's sustainability and success."
