About CARE Canada employment

CARE Canada employs 100-150 staff annually to support its programs overseas. Contracts vary in length and are dependent on project activity, duration and funding. International staff manage or work on projects, administer field office functions, provide technical advice (in areas such as water/sanitation, small enterprise and economic development, food security and livelihoods, and health) and support emergency humanitarian assistance programs.

CARE Canada's head office is located in Ottawa. Staff in Ottawa support international programs in program management, program support and technical assistance, fundraising and communications, human resources management, and financial administration.

While CARE Canada does not have an overseas volunteer program, we do engage volunteers locally and offer a limited amount of domestic and international internship opportunities. These opportunities are always listed on the Careers page as well. CARE recognizes that an international assignment as a volunteer or intern is an excellent way to begin a career in international development or humanitarian assistance. Many CARE employees developed their skills and acquired that critical "first international work experience" as a volunteer or intern.

Information about other organizations offering volunteer placements is available from the Canadian Council for International Cooperation (CCIC).
