In 2011 and 2012, Avesta Group helped the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in the construction of a new building by implementing its economic and financial skills.


To Explore the Subject of Human Rights

Established by Parliament through amendments to the Museums Act on March 13, 2008, which came into force on August 10, 2008, the Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR) is envisioned as a national and international destination, a centre of learning where Canadians and people from around the world can engage in discussion and commit to taking action against hate and oppression.
The purpose of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights is to explore the subject of human rights, with particular but not exclusive reference to Canada, to enhance the public's understanding of human rights, to promote respect for others and to encourage reflection and dialogue (Museums Act).
The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is a $351 million project created in partnership between the Government of Canada, the Province of Manitoba, the City of Winnipeg, The Forks North Portage Partnership and the private sector.


A Landmark Building by Antoine Predock Architect PC

With construction completed in 2014, the physical home of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights is an inspiring international landmark, drawing visitors from around the globe.
There is over 4,500 sq.m of exhibit space, 10 zones, and a temporary exhibition gallery where visitors will be able to examine human rights issues in depth.
The Museum held opening ceremonies on September 19, 2014, and began welcoming visitors on September 20, 2014.
