New User Information - Welcome

First of all, hello and a warm welcome to WorkInNonProfits.ca. Our site's main focus is to be the most affordable way of connecting non-profits across Canada with the human resources they need - quickly and easily.

Using our Website

On every page, you will see some constant items.

Navigation Tabs - across the top, above the blue bar, you will see 3 navigation tabs. Breadcrumb Trail - In the blue bar across the top, beginning with the words "You're here:", you will find a trail of where you are in the site and how you got there (the 'breadcrumbs'). At any stage you can click on one of the underlined links to go straight back to that page, without having to click your back button through the intermediate steps.

Left-hand Pane - On the left you have a navigation pane which also allows you to go quickly to any section of the site you would like. You will also notice a little blue image just above it to the left with 3 white triangles and the word "Hide". If you click on this it will hide the left pane to maximise your screen size for viewing jobs, etc. You can always get it back again by clicking the blue image with 3 white triangles again. If you are viewing this page at a resolution lower than 1024x768 we suggest turning off this pane to improve your browsing experience.

Account Section - In the top-right corner of the screen you will see account related links like "login", "create account" (if you're not logged in), "My Account" (if you are) and an option to change the site language. The "My Account" link takes you to the section where you can do things like change passwords, update your registration information, manage your job alerts and view billing details (if applicable) ) and history.

The Footer - in a dark blue bar across the bottom at the end of every page, you will find the footer. This too, contains links to various other areas of the site like our privacy policy, terms of use, about us and how to contact us.
