Who we are
CRE is a National Indigenous & Youth-led, non-profit. A vision of a reconciled Canada is only possible through collective action and impact. So, CRE’s mission is to provide pathways for Indigenous youth on their journey of self-determination and resiliency in an effort to advance reconciliation in their lifetime. This is achieved through programs and granting opportunities that support capacity building, cultural revitalization, networking and solidarity.
At Canadian Roots Exchange, we believe that young people are the key to ensuring the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples improves through dialogue, understanding, and relationship building. Our charitable organization has been convening meetings of both Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth (ages 13-29) across Canada for over a decade through exchange programs, youth leadership development, educational workshops in schools, national gatherings, and the launch of a National Indigenous Youth Network.
CRE is a workplace that puts its employees and community first. We are a living wage employer and believe in prioritizing a healthy work-life balance. We provide opportunities for flexible working hours, time off for ceremony and other life responsibilities and we actively respond to the accessibility needs of those who work with us. We are a results-oriented working environment, choosing to focus on achieving objectives, rather than promoting the status quo.
We are looking for an Administrative Assistant to support the Centre for Indigenous Policy and Research department with administrative, clerical and operational support, as well as fulfill a wide range of office administration experience to ensure efficient day-to-day workplace operations.
