Why join us?
CANVAS is a non-profit that offers interactive training programs on gender equity, consent, and LGBTQ2S+ inclusion in schools, summer camps, community spaces and workplaces.
We are a talented team with the strength to dive into difficult conversations with empathy and resilience. Many of us are personally affected by the oppression we are working to challenge. We put our people first, because we know that our people are our strength. We’re accountable and transparent, and invest in our team’s growth.
We believe that harmful, discriminatory attitudes are learned, and every person has the potential to critically examine their learned behaviours and beliefs to work towards a more empathetic, equitable and kinder world-view. It is our role to develop a space where that education and personal reflection can take place.
What makes us – and you – different?
Our methods and products are innovative. We introduce new ideas and engage in original and creative thinking.
Our reach and adaptability are accessible. We’re easy to approach, speak with, and understand.
Our attitudes and approach are empathetic. We identify with the feelings and thoughts of others.
Our goals and passions are visionary. We have unique ideas about what the future could be like, with a motivation to achieve it.
