Envisioning the Canadian Museum for Human Rights
The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is envisioned to be an international destination of human rights learning, dialogue and greater understanding.

Centrally located in Winnipeg, the crossroads of Canada, the Museum is intended to become a major hub for international human rights activity and the largest, most comprehensive centre of its kind in the world.
