JusticeTrans is looking for an enthusiastic and dedicated Project Coordinator and Head of Research to lead a project on access to justice for trans people (including, but not limited to, transgender, transsexual, non-binary, Two-Spirit, and intersex people, and those who do not identify with the gender they were assigned at birth) in Canada. The Project Coordinator will be responsible for the management and the timely completion of the Trans Access to Justice Knowledge Enhancement and Capacity Building Project. The project aims at increasing JusticeTrans’ knowledge of access to justice issues within the trans community in Canada and at increasing the organisation’s capacity, both in terms of governance and in terms of programming and advocacy. The Project Coordinator will also act as the project’s lead researcher. The Project Coordinator will be supported by and will supervise the work of the Administrative Assistant, the Project Officer and various part-time project and research assistants.
We strongly prefer to hire a candidate who is a part of the trans community. Given the importance of intersectionality for JusticeTrans and for this project, we will further be prioritizing those who identify as trans feminine, BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, Person of Colour), and people with disabilities.
The position is full-time (7.5h per business day) from December 7th 2020 to March 31st 2022 (there is flexibility to start in early January 2021 for the right candidate). Due to COVID-19 and the global position, the Project Coordinator and Research will work remotely from home (although the position is considered to be in Ontario for payroll purposes).
JusticeTrans is happy to provide any needed accommodations for candidates during the hiring process and during employment. To request an accommodation, please email .
