Canadian Centre Food Integrity (CCFI) Seeks a Research & Membership Coordinator


CFI Mandate: To help Canada’s food system earn public trust by providing research, resources, dialogue and training in a safe, collaborative and pre-competitive working environment for members and supporters.


Are you passionate about public trust in food and agriculture with a strong interest in understanding consumers? 

Do you consider yourself a positive, collaborative thinker who enjoys working with a small fast-paced team?

Then we have an opportunity for you with the Canadian Centre for Food Integrity!


Consumers have questions about food — where it comes from, who’s producing it, and how. Their healthy curiosity and skepticism is why we exist. It’s not about supporting a certain outcome. We don’t lobby or advocate on behalf of any brand or company or food production method. We simply want to make sure that consumers — in an environment where they are bombarded with contradictions — have the balanced information they need about food to make informed choices that are right for them and their families.


CCFI is a not-for-profit charitable organization whose members and partners represent the diversity of today’s food system — from farmers, ranchers, foodies and food companies to universities, non-governmental organizations, restaurants, retailers and food processors. Newly launched in 2016, CCFI develops and implements strategies that serve to build public trust and confidence in the food system.


Specifically, we:

  •       Conduct research on consumer opinions, questions and concerns. Results are communicated broadly;
  •       Develop and highlight best practices, models and messages that build trust;
  •       Create forums for thought leaders from across the food system to come together and collectively advance public trust building.
  •       Maintain strong and lasting relationships with members and stakeholders.

Reporting to the CEO, with line reporting to the COO, the Research & Membership Coordinator is an important member of the Canadian Centre for Food Integrity team. The Research & Membership Coordinator will oversee and coordinate the consumer research strategies, and member relationship strategies, as outlined in the CCFI business plan.


The successful candidate will be responsible to translate consumer trend research and other such relevant findings, into engaging presentations and reports. He/she will be responsible to identify gaps and provide recommendations to build public trust in Canada’s food system based on this analysis. This individual will also be responsible for communicating these results to various audiences, and to be the key membership relations contact for the organization.



The successful candidate must have post-secondary education with a Bachelor degree in business, policy, administration, public relations or related fields with a passion for consumers, food and agriculture. A minimum of 5 years’ experience in a coordination or management role is preferred. The successful candidate needs exceptional presentation, communication and written skills.

  •       Proven experience in coordinating data, formulating reports and developing high-level presentations
  •       Understanding of the relevance of how consumer trends affect production practices.
  •       Outstanding organizational, coordination and communication abilities
  •       Outstanding customer relationship management skills and abilities
  •       Aptitude in decision making and problem solving
  •       An ability to work in an Office365 environment
  •       An ability to communicate in both official languages would be viewed as an asset
