PAQ currently has an opening for a Shelter Coordinator at our permanent shelter location. The
person in this position plays two key roles. The first role is as the administrative and operational lead,
supporting recruitment, staff scheduling, volunteer and stock management, and general safety and
security within the shelter. The other role involves supporting the Program and Services Manager to
ensure the delivery of quality and culturally adapted intervention services.
The person in this position is an experienced and skilled intervention worker: an active listener and
counsellor, with the ability to adapt his or her intervention approach to align with the needs and values
of the urban Indigenous community. He or she must have the ability to coach other team members on
intervention approaches. The Shelter Coordinator will also have proven organizational and
administrative skills, with the ability to manipulate a wide range of IT platforms to support efficient
shelter operations. He or she must have a working knowledge of English and French; an Indigenous
language is an important asset. This person has formal social work training, or a degree in
management/administration. Professional or personal experience with First Nations, Inuit or Métis
peoples is a significant asset. A flexible schedule is an absolute ‘must’ for the person in this role as it
entails day, evening, night and weekend availability.
This is a full-time permanent position (35 hours per week) based at PAQ in Montréal with occasional
activities outside the shelter.To find out more about this exciting position and employment conditions, please go to our website at:
