What can you expect from joining a leading organization in the global movement to advance children’s rights and equality for girls?

We are one of Canada’s Most Admired Cultures and here’s why : together, we have created a climate of trust and inclusivity where diversity in people, ideas and approaches is not only respected, it’s encouraged.

Amidst the uncertainty of COVID-19, these qualities have come to the forefront as our organization evolves to remain agile.

Though we will evolve in many respects, our mission and strategic ambition will not change and our work has never been so imperative.

We will never stop believing in the multiplying power of girls and that every child deserves that right to learn, lead, decide and thrive.

Our future success will be founded upon Plan International Canada’s 80+ year history of focusing on our mission, our core values, responding to challenges and seizing opportunities with purpose, relevance and impact.
