As a registered charity volunteering with Maggie's counts toward community service requirements and course credits.

We're one of Canada's oldest by and for sex workers justice organizations. We believe all sex workers deserve to live and work with safety and dignity, and in order to achieve this we must be in control of our own destinies. For this reason our organization prioritizes sex workers in all positions. We strive to provide a safe and inclusive space for sex workers in Toronto.

The organization is also a leader in sex work advocacy in Canada and is recognized for its work internationally. It’s important that volunteers at all levels are committed to and positively represent Maggie’s values and principles.

About committees at Maggie's Toronto

Our committees are led by chairs of the Board of Directors. These are volunteer positions dedicated to providing support to Maggie's and to the broader sex working community. We conduct (remote) meetings on a monthly basis. For project work, time commitments are flexible according to volunteer capacity.

While we appreciate the interest from everyone who applies, we will contact only those whose responses best aligns with our work. We prioritize applications from current/former sex workers Queer and Trans/Black and Indigenous Communities of Colour (QT/BIPOC) migrant, disabled folks.

Current Opportunities: Political Action Committee

We're currently recruiting members for our Political Action Committee at Maggie's.
 

This past year has seen the targeting of sex workers through anti-trafficking initiatives, the expansion of policing, and new efforts to deplatform online sex workers. Meanwhile, our city is in the midst of a housing crisis pushing our community members to live on the streets and in encampments; low-income and racialized community members are facing heightened levels of food insecurity; and racist attacks are rampant. We are calling on our community to come together to strategize and advocate for the protections and well-being of sex workers to address a range of political issues across our communities.

 

We are looking for sex worker  advocates and community organizers to help us develop our committee and provide strategy, lead organizing efforts, and contribute to advocacy materials.

 

This committee will provide strategic direction to Maggie’s on a number of advocacy issues, will participate in external committees to lobby the government, and will engage in the development of public statements, presentations, policy proposals,  

 

The immediate priorities of the committee will be responding to:

Current Opportunities: Legal Program Volunteers

We're building a legal program at Maggie's to support in the fight for decriminalization and aid us in creating resources + supports for sex workers dealing with local, provincial and federal regulations. 

With the expansion of police powers through the government’s new COVID-19 measures, the pressing forward of harmful anti-trafficking bills, and the new attacks against online sex workers, our communities are in need of legal supports more than ever before.


We invite lawyers and law students who share our values to apply to the committee as well as sex workers interested in acting as an advisory committee - identifying key legal resources, reviewing materials produced and ensuring all content meets the needs of sex workers in our communities. 

Our immediate priorities include: Ontario's COVID-19 restrictions, the targeted use of anti-trafficking legislation against sex workers, digital security and community-requested resources on housing, child protection, immigration and sexual violence.
