Working With Us

... as a Technical Advisor

Rooftops Canada occasionally has openings for short- and long-term Technical Advisors. Most of our advisors have significant experience and expertise in cooperative, social and community-based housing development, management and/or finance. These may be volunteer or paid positions that are generally only available to those holding Canadian passports.

See our current Technical Advisor listings.

... as a Volunteer in Canada

Volunteering  is a great way to learn more about international development and meet people from around the world.

Our volunteer network is led by people committed to better housing and sustainable communities. Rooftops Canada volunteers across Canada help us make a difference in the world. They help host overseas visitors, organize education events and promote our work among housing groups in Canada.

Contact us to join our volunteer network.


... as a Youth Intern

Rooftops Canada has sent over 100 young professionals overseas to work with partner organizations on housing, community development, human rights and networking.

The International Youth Internship Program (IYIP) is part of the Government of Canada’s Youth Employment Strategy, and receives funding from the Canadian International Development Agency. Learn about the current Intern Program.
