You Belong Here

Egale Canada is committed to inclusion, equity, diversity, and accessibility (IDEA) in employment and therefore strongly encourages people of diverse, intersecting, and marginalized identities to apply. We recognize that equity goes beyond hiring and requires internal supports to allow our employees to show up as their authentic selves. Here are a few of the ways that Egale Canada supports employee belonging at work:

Recognition of National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

We see this is not as a holiday, but a day of learning, being with your communities and honouring stolen lives.

Paid personal days

Showing up can be hard and sometimes you need a day to take care of yourself or those around you.

Paid time off around the year-end holidays

Take time for yourself, your needs and your loved ones.

Right to disconnect policy

To help you maintain boundaries when working remotely.

Flexible work hours

Start your day between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. to work with other responsibilities

Staff recognition initiatives and appreciation events 

Because we value your work and want you to be celebrated

All staff learning

All staff engage in ongoing learning within their work hours, through means such as guest speakers, participating in our webinars, and online courses.

Professional development

Your growth and work satisfaction are important to us – we encourage and support professional development for our staff.

Funding for queer affirmation

Apply for financial support from an internal, committee-led fund to assists with the costs of affirming your gender and/or queerness.

Employee committees

Your voice matters. Join an employee committee to have a say in organizational changes and/or improvements.

Gender-affirming accommodations

We understand coming out is a journey. At Egale Canada, we support the journey through means such as assistance changing your name and/or pronouns at work, understanding your name may be different from your legal name and respecting names wherever possible, and time off for transition-related surgeries.


Egale Canada is committed to work led by and for the community. We strive to ensure members of equity-denied groups, from a broad range of communities, feel empowered to apply for positions within the organization. We encourage qualified applicants to consider work opportunities with Egale Canada because a diverse work force is critical to accomplishing our mission. The organization is dedicated to taking proactive steps to overcome historical patterns of discrimination in employment which have created barriers of race, colour, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, language, class, sexual orientation, and gender identity or expression for some individuals.  

Egale Canada welcomes and encourages applications from people with disabilities. Accommodations are available on request for candidates taking part in all aspects of the selection process. If you have questions or requests for accommodations, please email 

What to Expect when Applying/Interviewing

  • Email your application – if you have questions or need more information on this, contact
  • We review the applications internally.
  • While we appreciate everyone’s interest, only applications selected to move forward will be contacted for an interview.  
  • The interview and selection process may involve several steps such as the submission of a portfolio, a preliminary interview and a second interview.  
  • Interviews are typically virtual and run by two or more people – if you need to reschedule or have a phone interview, please let us know. 
  • As a condition of employment, Egale Canada requires proof of COVID-19 vaccinations for all positions.

Application Considerations

We are looking for candidates who are familiar with 2SLGBTQI communities, either through lived experience or previous work/volunteer experience. It is important to us all staff understand intersectionality and anti-oppressive/anti-racist frameworks and can work independently. French is an asset.  

If you believe you do not have these skills but are open to learning and have other assets to bring to our organization, please still consider applying. Your cover letter can be used as an opportunity to describe how your work, volunteering, or lived experience might be translated to a role.
