Call for Applicants for Shelter and Settlement Register

 

Join the world’s largest humanitarian network. The Canadian Red Cross Society (CRCS) is a not for profit, humanitarian organization dedicated to helping Canadians, as well as the most vulnerable throughout the world.

 

  • Are you an experienced professional who works in the Architectural, Engineering and Construction (AEC) field with international field experience?
  • Do you want to lend your talents to helping families recover and build more resilient communities after disasters?

The Canadian Red Cross is looking to expand its register of professionals that can be eventually deployed as delegates in responses in Canada and abroad.
