CCMF Alberta is a place where men are treated with compassion and without prejudice or shaming. We encourage men's agency and offer them tools with which to build better relationships, better lives, and better futures. We believe improving men’s mental health makes them better dads, better partners, safer workers, and more engaged contributing members of their communities.
The Canadian Centre for Men and Families (CCMF) Alberta has been in operation for over 5 years as the local Branch of our national charity. Initially focused in Calgary, CCMF Alberta expanded to Edmonton and now offers access to support across the province.
This role will provide an opportunity for you to contribute, collaborate, and learn as part of a fantastic and caring team that is truly making things better for men, families, and the community.
CCMF Alberta clients are men who are struggling due to intimate relationship breakdown and turmoil. All programs are developed in response to client needs and in consultation with a Registered Psychologist. Our programs help equip men to manage stressful situations, rebuild their lives after relationships fail, stay connected with children, and minimize the chance of escalation to acute mental health crisis.
Working closely with the CCMF Alberta Executive Director, the Executive Assistant will help with agency and program operations.
