News from the Museum

The Canadian Museum of Nature resides on the traditional, unceded territory of the Anishinābe Algonquin people who have stewarded this land for thousands of years.

We acknowledge that the museum's scientific research occurs across Canada—from coast to coast to coast—on the territories of the Métis and First Nations people and in Inuit Nunangat.
