ACORN Canada is looking for a motivated individual interested in organizing French-speaking low-income individuals and families in Montreal, to build community capacity and develop leadership skills. The individual will also establish and coordinate initiatives to improve the organization’s accessibility and visibility in the Montreal Francophone community, and expand the reach of our community development campaigns.

All of these activities will ideally be conducted in French.


No experience is required. Professional organizing training will be provided.


ACORN Canada is made up of more than 100,000 low- and moderate-income member families, in 21 local chapters of ACORN throughout the country, organized democratically through community organizing. We are Canada's largest grassroots community organization for low and moderate income families.
