Through the support of Anglican parishes across Canada, PWRDF makes financial and human resources available to partners around the world working to improve health, food security, and livelihoods for vulnerable people. 

PWRDF is recruiting Mapping Exercise facilitators. The facilitator of PWRDF’s Mapping Exercise, “Mapping the Ground We Stand On,” helps PWRDF demonstrate its commitment to supporting the findings of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and work towards its strategic priority of strengthening relationships with Indigenous communities.

We are looking for candidates based in the dioceses of Islands and Inlets, Rupert’s Land, Huron and Niagara, and Nova Scotia/PEI, but we would welcome applications from other dioceses as we try to meet workshop requests in the four ecclesiastical provinces.
