We're hiring for TWO positions at the NWTRPA!

The NWT Recreation and Parks Association is looking for two new faces to join our small but mighty team. We are hiring for the Director – Active Communities and the Professional Development Coordinator positions.


About the NWTRPA

The NWTRPA is a non-profit organization that promotes recreation by supporting leaders, communities, and partners through training, advocacy, and networking. We envision a territory where everyone has the access to recreation programs and spaces that foster healthy families, strong cultures, and vibrant communities.


Director – Active Communities

The Director – Active Communities is responsible for the direction and delivery of NWTRPA Active Communities programs. This includes, but is not limited to, the NWTRPA Walking Challenge, Elders in Motion, and Get Active Grants. The strategic goal most closely aligned with this position is: “More NWT residents of all ages are able to choose active ways of living because of improvements in the accessibility, diversity, and quality of community-based recreation programs.”
