Become an Outward Bound Canada Instructor

Outward Bound Canada’s greatest asset is our instructional staff. Accomplished outdoor educators with extensive technical and facilitation skills, and the passion and compassion to inspire students to learn, our instructors come from all walks of life with a vast array of talents and experiences. Some have worked extensively in outdoor education, while others come from university programs or other career paths. We value group facilitation skills, life experience, passion, dedication, resiliency, and teaching ability as highly as technical proficiency.

As a leader in outdoor, experiential education, Outward Bound Canada offers a diverse selection of working opportunities in scenic and remote wilderness or urban areas. We accept instructor resumes year-round.

At Outward Bound Canada, each region conducts its own staff training before the start of the summer season. Successful instructor applicants will be selected to attend these trainings in BC, the Rockies, or Ontario. In BC and the Rockies, this is a four or five-day training program for instructors who have been offered contracts.

Please note: All job offers are contingent upon passing a Vulnerable Sector Police Check and the successful completion of all required certifications.

We thank all applicants in advance, however only those selected for an interview will be contacted. If you are interested in applying for a support or administrative position, openings are posted on our website when they are available with information on how to apply.
