Crossroads International — one of Canada’s foremost international co-operation organizations — has been fighting inequality for more than 50 years. We do this by bringing people together in common cause, to create lasting solutions to overcome poverty and advance women’s rights.
Crossroads works in some of the world’s poorest nations in Southern Africa, West Africa and South America. Crossroads supports women, youth and the rural poor, who are often marginalized in the economy and left out of the decisions that affect their lives. We work as equals with local partner organizations to create decent jobs and to empower women to become leaders and live free from violence.
Crossroads is committed to principles and values of access and equity. We encourage applications from people of colour, people with disabilities, and people from aboriginal and/or other marginalized communities.
All applicants must be eligible to work in Canada. We thank all applicants in advance, however, only those selected for an interview will be contacted.
