Jane Maxwell

Diocese of Ottawa

Jane spent much of her career life in Toronto, working in international development for more than 25 years, including 10 years with PWRDF’s national office as a Project Officer and 10 years managing the University of Toronto’s Scarborough Co-op Programme in International Development Studies. Jane made the bold decision of changing careers in her fifties, moving into the field of fundraising. She moved to Ottawa in 2005 to take a job with the NDP of Canada and has been enjoying the National Capital ever since. She is now retired and serves as both a parish representative for St. John the Evangelist Church and as the PWRDF Diocesan Representative for the Diocese of Ottawa. In 2014 she had the great pleasure of spending six months working in a volunteer capacity in Sri Lanka with PWRDF’s partner, OfERR Ceylon, an experience she found to be immensely rewarding and stimulating.
