Good Neighbors Canada

Good Neighbors is an international humanitarian development non-governmental organization (NGO) founded in South Korea in 1991. After 5 years, we obtained consultative status with the United Nation’s Economic and Social Council (UNECOSOC). Good Neighbors Canada launched in March 2017 in London, Ontario. Under the Good Neighbors’ international governance, we focus on fundraising, refugee and newcomer settlement programs, and global development campaigns to support field projects.

Good Neighbors Canada is seeking to broaden its reach online to the Chinese community in Canada, so would love to bring a speaker of Mandarin and/or Cantonese to the team. This candidate would act as a supporting Engagement Officer to provide flexible voluntary support to the Good Neighbors Canada social media and advertising teams.


The voluntary Engagement Officer is responsible for the ongoing management of communications related to community networking and paid social media advertising. Through the development of a Chinese network, the Engagement Officer will support Good Neighbors Canada to tap into a broader donor base and thus enhance support for Good Neighbors Canada’s international development projects.
