In this permanent and part-time position (50%), you will join the Friends of the Parks programming team to help strengthen citizen participation in the city of Montreal's urban parks. We are looking for a bilingual community animator, with experience in organizing significant community events, and a vast knowledge of the municipal and associative landscape of Montreal.

Friends of the Parks is a pan-Canadian charitable organization whose mission is to support and mobilize park actors (citizen groups, community organizations, non-profit organizations (NPOs), development professionals, employees municipal, private and public funders) to activate the power of urban parks across Canada.

As part of our recruitment process, we actively seek to hire Indigenous Peoples, Black People of Color (IPOC), to establish a real dialogue with them, to offer them a framework and to take into account their opinion, and this, based on the principles of intersectionality, Indigenous resilience and anti-racism. We are committed to promoting equity, diversity and inclusion in our workspaces and programs, and we encourage BIPOCs to apply.

As a Project Manager in Montreal, you will be in charge of the following tasks:

  • Organize and lead meetings with citizens and partners to encourage member participation and networking (3rd Forum, informal meetings)
  • Develop, maintain and consolidate relationships with members and partners (e.g. boroughs, community organizations and neighborhood tables) of the Friends of Montreal Parks Network
  • Support groups of friends of the parks in their journey by providing them, according to their needs, with support in the organization of events, organizational development or the drafting of funding requests, for example
  • Integrate and adapt existing Friends of the Parks tools and processes to meet the goals and needs of network groups;
  • Participate in the evaluation of projects by collecting data (such as interviews and focus groups);
  • Represent the Friends of the Parks at events organized by our partners and members in parks and green spaces;
  • Support the work of the team in Quebec and the rest of Canada as needed

Skills and experience required for this position:

  • Bilingual (French and English) 
  • At least 2 years of experience in awareness raising, mobilization or citizen consultation are required;
  • Experience working with diverse audiences, including in multicultural contexts and with equity-seeking or vulnerable populations, is required;
  • Experience with various phases of project management, including project planning, prioritization, managing deadlines, tracking deliverables, reporting, and the ability to move projects forward;
  • Autonomy and initiative;
  • Good knowledge of social networks and ability to navigate on different platforms;
  • Knowledge of Montreal municipal dynamics is an asset;
  • Experience in organizations working at the national level is an asset;
  • Experience in writing proposals for funding requests for NPOs is an asset;
  • Knowledge of Copper and Basecamp digital tools is an asset;

Place of work: We will consider applications from people living in Montreal. The successful candidate will also have the opportunity to alternate between teleworking days and days at the office during the work week. The successful candidate must be willing to work sometimes in the evening or on weekends and also to travel for work in the different neighborhoods of Montreal and sometimes also outside the city. 

Salary range: $50,000 - $55,000 prorated part-time (50%)

Expected start date: As soon as possible

By working for Friends of the Parks, you will benefit from a rewarding work environment including:

  • attractive benefits, such as a health and dental plan, generous paid holidays, annual salary increases based on the cost of living, subscription to the bike-sharing program in certain cities and a pension plan.
  • We have a positive work culture driven by smart, engaged people with a constant need to learn and grow without taking themselves too seriously.
  • We work remotely with colleagues across the country, and our strong spirit of institutional collaboration allows us to offer a hybrid workplace that is both in-person and remote (currently all work is done remotely).
  • We also provide them with the time and financial resources to develop and train themselves, and grow their careers through professional opportunities as the organization grows.

Friends of the Parks is a national organization and we strive to offer as many bilingual programs as our resources allow. Our operations and primary working language is English. Thus, although the work within the Montreal team is done in French (75% of your time), all communications with the rest of the team will be in English (25% of your time).

We will review applications and conduct interviews as we go. We therefore encourage those interested in this position to apply as soon as possible. As soon as the position is filled, we will close the hiring process. We thank all applicants, but only those selected for an interview will be contacted. 

Please send your resume and cover letter in one electronic file to who will treat them confidentially. If you require a special accommodation to participate in the recruitment process, please notify us at and provide us with your contact information.

We require as a condition of employment that all of our staff be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
