ACORN Canada is a not for profit made up of more than 100,000 low- and moderate-income member families, in 21 local chapters of ACORN throughout the country, organized democratically through community organizing. We are Canada's largest grassroots community organization for low and moderate income families. We have won many important social justice campaigns like Payday Lending legislation, Renters’ Rights Campaigns, stopping Disability Assistance claw-backs, Raising the Minimum Wage, Internet for All, and more!


Ottawa ACORN offers a Community Tax Clinic for low income households to better serve the community and to create an opportunity for low income people to be introduced to the community organizing work that is happening in their own neighbourhood. After a client’s taxes and benefits registration have been completed, they have the chance to speak with one of our Community Organizers to learn how to get involved.

6) Running our second service called the Tax Collective - our social enterprise for moderate income clients which includes administering taxes and also collecting cost recovery fees

7) Collecting and compiling statistics from volunteers for all programs

8) Weekly and monthly reporting on programs

9) Managing Benefit Intake Days where clients come in and we help them access, register or understand various benefits or forums. Volunteer recruitment, training and scheduling will also be required for these days.


This really is a fit for anyone who wants to work in a fast paced, yet fun and positive, environment. You will work daily with low income people ensuring that all of their tax benefits are received.


Experience not required in accounting or finance; however, it is an asset to mention in your application.
