We are looking for people to fill a variety of roles- if you are interested in 
volunteering for the Museum, but don’t see anything that suits you below, 
we can find a role for you- just ask! Gain work experience in a museum 
setting or simply get to know more about your community. We look forward 
to working with you. 
If you have a vehicle and make trips to Function Junction, Squamish or 
Vancouver or are able to help in other ways we need you!

R e-h ou s i n g   p h o t o g r a p h s- Photographs are very delicate and need to be 
stored in special enclosures to prevent deterioration. Some of our 
collections are in great need of someone to spend the time to preserve 
them.
T r a n s c r i b e   o r a l   h i s t o r i e s- A variety of oral histories in the museum 
collection need to be typed out. Great typist? Enjoy listening to fascinating 
historical stories? This one’s for you. 
 
R e s e a r c h   p r o j e c t s- Ski lift history, ski run names, biographies on Whistler 
characters and more…this can be shaped to your interests. If you have an 
attention to detail and love piecing things together, come help us with a 
research project. 
 
C a t a l o g u i n g- This is a significant commitment, as it will require a bit of 
training. However, if you have an attention to detail and a love of history 
cataloguing is (in my opinion) the most fun thing to do in an archive. If you 
are interested in becoming an archivist, this will be great for your resume. If 
you have been here a long time, you might be able to help us identify 
people, places and events.
C o n v e r t  V H S  t a p e s  i n t o   n e w   m e d i a- Have experience converting old 
films into new media or willing to learn how? Come help us out & learn more 
about Whistler’s history in the process. 
H e l p   s c a n   a n d   d i g i t i z e   t h e   c o l l e c t i o n- Gain some archival experience 
while getting exposed to Whistler’s fascinating photographic history. We 
can teach you all the necessary skills for this one.
