KEEPING OUR STORIES ALIVE

Volunteer Application Form

  • Volunteer Intake Hiatus

    The Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives is not accepting new volunteers, with the exception of students and graduates of Master of Information or Master of Library and Information Science programs. This is due to a change of staffing levels and funding at the CLGA. 13,000 hours of volunteer time was donated to the CLGA in 2017. In order to maintain our volunteer program's standards, we are working towards remodelling this program. If you are still interested in volunteering, we will put your name on a wait list and will contact you when we begin accepting new volunteers later this year. We appreciate your interest in volunteering at the CLGA. If you would like to be added to the waitlist please fill out the form below.

The Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives is located on the traditional lands of the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation, the Haudenosaunee, the Anishnaabe and the Huron-Wendat. Today, Toronto is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.

The CLGA strives to gather the stories of the unheard and silenced voices of the 2SLGBTQ+ first peoples of this land. We acknowledge that some stories have already been lost, and we aim to ensure that those that remain and those that are to come are preserved for the future.
