TCAT is hiring a Community Coordinator to manage the implementation of a multi-year participatory project to improve active transportation in communities across Ontario.
Active Neighbourhoods Canada (ANC) is a pan-Canadian initiative funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada and led by the Montreal Urban Ecology Centre in partnership with TCAT and Sustainable Calgary Society. ANC was formed in 2013 to bring participatory planning to 12 communities in Alberta, Ontario and Quebec. Between 2017 and 2020 we will leverage the knowledge developed in the first phase in order to transform professional practice and policies, and equip decision-makers and communities to create active, healthy communities.
The Community Coordinator will join our small yet dynamic ANC team at TCAT. Between 2013 and 2017 Mikey Bennington and Car Martin jointly coordinated TCAT’s ANC project and did an outstanding job directly supporting 4 Ontario communities (see our Summary Report). Both Mikey and Car have transitioned into new roles on the ANC project. Mikey is now the Policy and Evaluation Lead and Car is a Participatory Design Consultant. Their experience and expertise will be invaluable to the new Community Coordinator.
The application deadline is Monday, July 31, 2017 @ 5 p.m. For more details, including a full list of responsibilities and qualifications, and to apply, see the posting on GoodWork. A PDF version can be downloaded here.
