WORKING WITH US
MSF Canada is a people-focused humanitarian organization that is proud to offer a diverse, collaborative and inclusive work environment. We strongly believe this approach enhances our work and we’re committed to equity in employment. MSF Canada seeks to attract and engage the best professionals to join our organization and maintain meaningful, productive and lasting work relationships. We embrace diverse motivations and backgrounds of people working together to exhibit their passion in action for MSF’s social mission.
MSF Canada acknowledges the existence of systemic racism and oppression, and is committed to sustaining and strengthening its anti-racism and anti-oppression (AOAR) efforts. As MSF Canada continues to grow and strive to remove barriers in its offices in Canada and in MSF work environments abroad, we welcome applications from individuals with unique experiences of intersectional oppression on the basis of their social markers such as their ethno-racial identity, age, gender identity, education, socio-economic status or place of origin. We encourage Black, Indigenous, People of Colour, LGBTQIA2S+ people, individuals living with disabilities and any equity-deserving individual to apply.
In line with MSF’s December 2021 pledge to reduce our carbon emissions by 50 percent by 2030, we encourage all MSF staff to embrace and embed sustainable and climate-friendly practices into their work. Applying a climate and planetary health lens will help us improve our operational impact. Facing climate change and environmental degradation through our operational activities by focusing on mitigation and adaptation will decrease our dependency on fossil fuels, reduce our ecological footprint and help protect human health. Everyone, at all levels, with all skill sets is needed to address the global threat of the climate crisis.
MSF Canada benefits packages includes access to a generous Health Spending Account, Group Insurance, RRSP contributions – based on employment status, Long-term / Short-term Disability, starting 4 weeks’ vacation/year, flexible work hours, relocation packages based on eligibility, a professional development budget, Employee Assistance Program, and a positive and innovative office culture grounded in our core values of humanity, integrity and results.
