This is a permanent 4 day per week (80%) position based at our office in Vancouver.
The British Columbia Law Institute (BCLI) and its division, the Canadian Centre for Elder Law (CCEL), seek a Communications Manager to join our team. The successful candidate will have an interest in addressing fundamental legal and systemic issues and promoting the development of better laws for all peoples in British Columbia and better futures for Canada’s aging population.
The British Columbia Law Institute (BCLI) is a not-for-profit law reform agency that has worked to improve and modernize the law since 1997. Our work is intended to strengthen laws, develop just and innovative solutions, and increase access to justice in British Columbia through independent scholarly research, writing and educational tools for law reform. The Canadian Centre for Elder Law (CCEL) is a division of the BCLI focused on matters related to aging. It is recognized internationally for its expertise in elder law.

We are a small team of legal professionals with a quiet and credible presence; we wish to raise our profile and increase awareness of our work through this expanded position. We are about to launch into a website redesign and our 25th anniversary is occurring in early 2022; both these special projects will be part of the Communications Manager’s activities.
