We are currently looking to fill the positions of...
2 of these positions will be open only to OWSP-eligible students, and 2 positions will be open to TIP students, out-of-province students and community members.

The positions will run from mid-November until early April (the end of classes), with breaks for school holidays. Hours will be 8 hours per week, at $11.45/hr.
Please send your application by email to The deadline for applications is November 6th 2010. Applicants must be available for training on the 13th and 14th of November for training.

Applicants are asked to submit responses to the following questions along with a resume. The Centre is committed to the belief that life experience is just as relevant as work experience, and recognizes the ways that certain people may have more limited access to employment experiences. Working towards an accessible hiring model, applicants may choose to provide a letter outlining your relevant knowledge and experience instead of a resume along with the responses to the questions.

  1. What does gender justice mean to you?
  2. How do you understand and experience oppression? How do you challenge oppression in your daily life?
  3. What life experiences, skills, activism, work history, etc. do you have to bring to the position? (If you are not submitting a resume, please elaborate on your answer to this question. Also, please relate your responses to the specific needs of the position to which you’re applying.)
  4. The Centre has been engaged in the process of shifting its structure and its space away from being a women’s only space to being a space for people who experience gender oppression. With this change, the Centre takes as one of its priorities services and space for trans people. Why is this important to you? What ideas do you have for being accountable in this respect?
  5. The Centre is developing a broader commitment to anti-racist activism, and working on confronting a history of institutionalized whiteness. How do you see yourself working towards this goal?
  6. Please give us an outline of some creative ideas that you have related to different aspects of the position(s) that you are applying for.
If you feel like this application process is a barrier for you, please contact us before the deadline to make alternative arrangements.

The Centre has an employment equity policy that considers applications from people from marginalized groups over others, so, where applicants are qualified, preference will be given to persons from groups who face systemic barriers to employment.

We regret that our current office space is currently physically inaccessible.
