The Canadian Network of Community Land Trusts seeks a National Network Coordinator!
CNCLT seeks a National Network Coordinator to lead the implementation of a new Technical Assistance Program for member organizations at different stages of organizational development. Community Land Trusts (CLTs) are community led, non-profit organizations which acquire and hold land in the interest of their local community. CLTs operate on a variety of scales choosing to represent either neighbourhoods, cities, or regions. CLTs are long-term stewards of affordability, which work to ensure perpetually affordable housing, and to secure space for high social-benefit non-profit enterprises.
The CNCLT Technical Assistance Program aims to support the healthy growth and increased impacts of the CLT sector through the documentation and dissemination of best practices. The objective is to grow, amplify, and consolidate the effectiveness and ongoing collaboration of CLTs across Canada.
The National Network Coordinator will be responsible for coordinating the overall process of developing, implementing, and administering the Technical Assistance Program in collaboration with expert consultants and member organizations. The goals of the Technical Assistance program include:
- to provide supportive technical assistance services (e.g. strategic planning, business planning, project feasibility analysis and development consulting);
- to develop knowledge transfer products;
- to gather best practices resources & tools;
- to promote peer networking and knowledge sharing among members including annual network conferences; and
- to offer professional development opportunities for member organizations through online webinars and workshops.
The Coordinator will be indispensable for supporting the growing CLT movement in Canada. In addition to the implementation and coordination of the Technical Assistance Program, the Coordinator will be also responsible for member organization engagement, media inquiries, communications, and day-to-day operations of the network.
The ideal candidate will be a passionate early or mid-career community development professional with experience working with non-profit community-based organizations, affordable housing organizations, and social real estate organizations with a strong commitment to housing justice, anti-racism, decolonization, and equitable development.
We strongly encourage applications from equity-deserving groups. Due to the uniqueness of this role, on the job training will be provided, as needed.
