In January 2009, the Museum’s Content Advisory Committee was formed, made up of human rights experts and leaders from across Canada, to support the Museum in the gathering of human rights stories. In addition to providing on-going expert advice, the CAC was a key part of the Museum’s first large scale engagement exercise, the Public Roundtables, which took place between March 2009 and February 2010. The CAC's mandate ended in April 2010.
