For too long, sustainable solutions around clean water and affordable, renewable sources of food, have been ignored in the 36 remote First Nations in Ontario’s Far North. These, as basic human rights, are incorporated as part of the UN Declaration on the Right of Indigenous Peoples, adopted recently by Canada’s Federal Government. MCCO is working to put peace into practice in the lives of Indigenous partners in Ontario. These are ways that Mennonite Central Committee Ontario (MCCO) continues to realize ‘reconciliation’ with purpose.
This is a 9 week contract role at 30 hours weekly, funded through the Canada Summer Jobs Program. Details contained in the complete posting, link provided.
For the past 15 years, last eight years, MCCO’s Indigenous Neighbours Program has partnered with First Nations, Treaty and Tribal Council organizations, community leaders and the Chiefs of Ontario, to work at a variety issues around water portability involving both drinking and sanitation.
All MCC workers are expected to exhibit a commitment to: a personal Christian faith and discipleship; active participation in a Christian church or Christian community; and nonviolent peacemaking. MCC is an equal opportunity employer, committed to employment equity. MCC values diversity and invites all qualified candidates to apply.
