The Simon Fraser Student Society’s vision of students thriving everywhere is realized through its support of students to reach their full potential by providing resources and services that represent, connect and benefit our membership. One such resource is the First Nations Student Association (FNSA).
In order to support our Indigenous students, including First Nations, Métis, and Inuit backgrounds, we are looking for our inaugural First Nations Student Association Coordinator.
The First Nation Student Association believes in a decolonized university, and that Indigenous students hold the knowledge and passion necessary to foment the changes to create such an institution.
Indigenous students struggle day to day with a variety of forces, but the challenges they face are always matched by the strength inherited from their ancestors.
Our vision is one of an empowered, united, healing, internal community of Indigenous students - supported materially, emotionally, and culturally on their own terms.
From this internal community, bonds of solidarity with the larger student body at Simon Fraser University can be created. It’s from this solidarity that reconciliation will develop in a meaningful and holistic way, and this is what the FNSA strives to facilitate through its programming, advocacy and support for SFU’s Indigenous students.
With this inspiring vision and as a member of the organizational team, the First Nations Student Association - Coordinator provides administrative and other supports to the FNSA Council and its members.
The FNSA – Coordinator oversees, coordinates and assists in the delivery of programs and services in the FNSA space.
This is a full time unionized position of 35 hours per week along with membership in Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 3338 at a wage rate of $26.94 per hour and additional benefits as defined in the Collective Agreement.
