MAPS Canada is powered by a large and dedicated group of volunteers. Join us! You can participate in one or several committees.
The Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI) Advisory will provide representation, consideration and an informed JEDI lens on the policies, procedures and operations of MAPS Canada. It is intended to help transform MAPS Canada into an organization that fully espouses and practices JEDI principles and informs the community at large.
The JEDI Advisory will support MAPS Canada to be a trusted and reputable non-profit research, advocacy, and educational organization that shapes medical, legal, and cultural contexts for people to benefit from the careful uses of psychedelics.
We are seeking volunteers who can make an ongoing commitment of approximately 3-5 hours per month. Backgrounds can include– but are not limited to experience with: JEDI initiative, policy creation, collective decision making, lineage-based medicine, elders council, racial justice, healthcare, clinical work, therapy, and nonprofits. Priority will be given to those from under-represented, marginalized, and racialized communities.
If interested in applying to be on this Advisory, please fill out this form by March 6, 2023. If you know someone who you think might be interested, please feel free to encourage them to apply.
Shortlisted candidates will be contacted and interviewed by the Board of Directors.
We invite you to submit your application to volunteer using this form.
Feel free to apply for one of the defined roles listed below, or apply generally to a committee.
