Brief Description:

Canadian Friends Service Committee (CFSC) is the peace and social justice agency of The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in Canada. CFSC is a faith-based organization. Quakers won the 1947 Nobel Peace Prize and are internationally recognized for peacebuilding and conflict transformation work. CFSC’s work continues this long tradition of transformative and sustainable approaches to human rights, justice, and peace.

The Peace Program Coordinator is a part-time position (17.5 work hours/week) with the possibility of being expanded into a full-time position based on the work plan developed by the Coordinator and the Peace Program Committee and results achieved from the work.

The Coordinator must be a self-starter excited about continually identifying opportunities to expand our work and impact.

The ideal candidate will have:

A background in peace and conflict with solid knowledge of peace policy,
Strong experience engaging with civil servants, politicians, and others around peace and/or social justice issues,
