Introducing the National Arts Centre
The National Arts Centre (NAC) is Canada’s bilingual, multi-disciplinary home for the performing arts. The
NAC presents, creates, produces, and co-produces performing arts programming in various streams—the
NAC Orchestra, Dance, English Theatre, French Theatre, Indigenous Theatre, and Popular Music and
Variety—and nurtures the next generation of audiences and artists from across Canada. The NAC is
located on the traditional, unceded, unsurrendered territory of the Anishinabe Algonquin Nation.

At the National Arts Centre, we believe the performing arts are vital to the human experience. A house of
dreams for the Canadian performing arts, we work with artists and arts organizations from across this land
to revitalize our sector.

Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, Anti-Racism and Accessibility
We are on a journey, committed to ensuring that equity, diversity, inclusion, accessibility, anti-racism and
reconciliation with Indigenous peoples will guide our actions.

The NAC welcomes applications from candidates who can help us meet our vision, and contribute to the
diversity of lived experiences, perspectives, and approaches. When you join the NAC, you will be part of
an inclusive community working hard to dismantle barriers to employees’ well-being, access, potential,
and success. The NAC actively seeks candidates who identify as women, Indigenous, Black, Persons of
Colour (IBPoC), members of 2SLGBTQIA+ communities, and people with disabilities. We encourage you
to self-identify in the recruitment process.

Key activities:
***This posting is ONLY for youth positions as part of the Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) Program. Only
applicants who meet the following criteria for CSJ, as set out by the Government of Canada
(Employment and Social Development Canada), are eligible to be considered. Applicants who do not
meet the criteria and who do not submit the requested mandatory application documents listed in
the below section “Who can Apply” will NOT be considered.

Arts Alive is the learning and engagement hub at Canada’s National Arts Centre by offering performances
for families and schools, workshops for students, professional development events, free resources for
educators and teaching artists, and more, both virtual and in-person.

The prospective candidate will collaborate with the Arts Alive marketing and administrative team to conduct
an in-depth environmental scan of local and national live performance options tailored for schools and
families. This involves researching youth programming initiatives in the USA, Europe, and globally,
compiling a comprehensive list of offerings, and offering valuable insights on how they align with NAC’s
educational and family-centric programs.

Additionally, the candidate will spearhead the development of an extensive database encompassing school
boards, schools, and educator contacts nationwide. This database will play a pivotal role in future Arts Alive
outreach and marketing campaigns, ensuring an expansive and impactful reach across Canada.
The candidate will further be responsible for compiling a list of potential influencers, in both English and
French, that are family or educators focused, and would therefore be a good fit to help promote NAC’s
learning programs.

Required qualifications:
– Possession of a degree (or current enrollment) in marketing, administration, arts
administration, or a related field of study;
– Familiarity with the performing arts landscape in Canada;
– Proven experience in research;
– Proficiency in essential tools such as Excel, Word, Microsoft Teams, and Outlook.

Who can apply:
• Must be between 15 and 30 years of age (inclusive) at the start of employment.
• Must be a Canadian Citizen, permanent resident, or person to whom refugee protection
has been conferred under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act for the duration of the
employment**; and,

• Priority will be given to Canadian citizens and permanent residents who identify as women,
Indigenous, Black, Persons of Colour (IBPoC), persons from the 2SLGBTQIA+ communities
and persons with disabilities.

**International students are not eligible participants. International students include anyone who is
temporarily in Canada for studies and who is not a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or person who
has been granted refugee status in Canada. Youth awaiting a refugee status ruling, as well as those who
hold a temporary visitor visa, youth visa or work visa are ineligible. As the objective of the Canada Summer
Jobs program is to support youth entering the Canadian labour market, the temporary nature of an
international student’s time in Canada does not allow for a long-term connection to the labour market.
As part of NAC’s interview process, in-person interviews may be required. Please ensure to have the most
