Employment Opportunities

NYA has a small team (normally of five full-time staff) that works from an Ottawa-based office. Additional staff are hired during the summer, as well as occasionally during other times during the year. The work environment is unique, fast-paced, friendly and focused on the success of the Participants that we serve. Wondering what it’s like to work with us?
