Exchange Inner City is looking to hire a full-time permanent Director. 

Exchange Inner City is a community backbone organization focused on community economic development (CED) initiatives and is comprised of over 50+ representatives from Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside (DTES) and inner city, specifically this includes; local residents, non-profit organizations, social enterprises, and businesses. Exchange Inner City’s mission is to collectively cultivate a vibrant and inclusive local economy where all residents can prosper and live full, rewarding lives.

In 2016 Exchange Inner City was an advisory body to the City of Vancouver, called CEDSAC and worked with the City to co-create a DTES Community Economic Development Strategy. The CED Strategy was adopted by City Council on November 30, 2016. Since then, Exchange Inner City developed into an organization with its own funding and governance model in order to deliver and implement the City’s CED strategy and continues to implement phase 2 of the strategy.

Exchange Inner City is now in a position to hire a full-time, permanent Director. The Director will oversee the CED work and projects of Exchange Inner City in progress, including supervision of the Exchange Inner City staff, ongoing communications and operations, and is expected to secure funding for the organization on an annual basis.
