TCAT Positions Available

TCAT currently has two short-term positions open. We are looking for skilled and dedicated people to help us complete key deliverables for our Complete Streets programming. One of the positions is paid and the other is volunteer.

  1. Photographer (paid)
    TCAT requires original photographs showcasing Complete Streets for its newly launched website. The purpose of this project is to provide TCAT with Complete Streets photographs in different urban environments across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) and beyond that will be used in our research reports, case studies, and other web-based resources. We are interested in photographs that showcase pedestrians, cyclists, transit users, and drivers of all ages and abilities co-existing on urban, suburban, and rural streets but are also in need of photographs that showcase conflicts between different users. The full posting is here.
  2. Researcher (volunteer)
    The volunteer assignment is a short-term project to assist TCAT in our strategic planning and to document the history of the term “Complete Streets” in Canada. The volunteer researcher will examine relevant trends in the field of active transportation, using research tools such as benchmarking, and competitive analysis. The analysis will involve developing a matrix that will compare active transportation research capacity in non-governmental, educational and government organizations either locally, regionally and nationally.  A separate but related volunteer task will be to establish a timeline of the evolution of the term “Complete Streets” in Canada. The full posting is here.

Scheduling is flexible but both assignments must be completed by September 21. The deadline for applications is August 10, 2012, submitted electronically to Ryan Anders Whitney (ryan.whitney@tcat.ca), TCAT’s Complete Streets Researcher and Project Manager.
