For more than 50 years, Christian Children's Fund of Canada (CCFC) has been creating a future of hope for children, families and communities by helping them develop the skills and gather the resources to overcome poverty and pursue justice.
Headquartered in Markham, Ontario, Canada, we also have offices in Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Ghana, India, Nicaragua and Paraguay. Our posted positions are based in one of our seven international offices.
While CCFC is an equal-opportunity employer, we hire talented nationals for positions in our field offices. Our goal is to further self-sufficiency in the countries we work.
We are collaborative and innovative. CCFC fosters a workplace that builds self-esteem, motivates and encourages employees to be their best and to do their best work, for the children, families and communities we serve.
Tens of thousands of children around the world receive support through our child-centred community development programs, so we attract and retain a high-calibre team — uniting people with diverse skill sets and cultural backgrounds who are passionate about protecting and empowering children. Employees are committed to our mission, vision and values.
You can also meet the children and families whose lives are being transformed, thanks to committed staff and partners. Check out ccfcanada.ca/stories to see why we do what we do.
Consistent with CCFC’s Child Protection Policy, a successful candidate must undergo a police background check and/or vulnerable sector check.
