Who we are

We love historic places and we love people too.

We love landmarks that tell our collective story, and our work is equally essential for struggling downtowns, remote regions, and diverse communities. We know historic places are the cornerstone of a vibrant and sustainable future.

We offer proven tools to save and renew historic places, and a treasure trove of destinations to visit and discover.

The National Trust is Canada’s national charitable not-for-profit organization that leads and inspires action for places that matter. We have a long track record and a team that’s passionate about the future.

Career Opportunities

We are also seeking candidates for a paid internship. If you love historic places and have a passion for Indigenous cultural heritage and Reconciliation, consider a paid internship with the National Trust for Canada and the Indigenous Heritage Circle.

Key projects include advancing the development of a Report Card on the State of Historic Places that reflects both “conventional” historic places and places of significance to Indigenous peoples, and an Endangered Indigenous Places List.

We are looking for a student or graduate in built heritage, cultural landscapes, architecture, archaeology, planning, geography, or related fields.

Start date: November 2021. End date: March 2022. (up to 22 weeks, up to 35 hours per week).

The Trust and the Circle are equal opportunity employers. For this position, preference will be given to Indigenous students or graduates.
