Join our Team!

Do you love staying on top of all of the great family events going on each week in Metro Vancouver? Family Fun Canada Inc. is looking for an enthusiastic, organized and word-savvy person to help us keep our readers informed and engaged with all of the family-friendly goings-on around Metro Vancouver.

What does a City Editor do? Tasks include sourcing information on events and activities, creating event posts, updating the events calendar and posting to social media. The fun part comes in writing about your adventures with your kids while out and about! We’re looking for an individual who wants to work from home on a flexible, part-time basis (15-20 hours per week) and be part of the Family Fun team.

Familiarity with the various family-friendly venues, museums, festivals and major attractions in the region is helpful, but successful candidates will have strong writing skills, excellent organizational skills, a passion for social media, and computer skills. Experience with the WordPress platform is preferred. You set your own schedule as long as all deadlines are met and communication is strong.

Are you up for helping to bring more family fun to the city you love? Email us at info@familyfuncanada.com to send along a cover letter, resume, and two samples of your writing (see below) and photography. We can only respond to candidates we wish to interview.

Writing Samples:

1. A 500-word story about one of your favourite Vancouver experiences/memories. It can be about a restaurant, bike trail, event, attraction, etc. We want to see a sample of your work that would be relevant to our website. If you have photos to accompany the story, even better. This is a from-scratch article and not something you’ve previously written.

2. A 150-word sample event listing for the following:
