A message about Alacrity Canada for a future team-mate:

“I love working for Alacrity because it's a dynamic and fast-moving organization that is continuously exploring new opportunities and sectors. Alacrity balances its status as a non-profit with its commitment to supporting and sparking business in B.C. Alacrity is international, it is entrepreneurial, and it is collaborative by nature.” - Sofie Campbell - Partnerships and Engagement Manager

“I took a non-traditional path to office work, and initially I didn’t believe I would ever ‘fit in’ in an office environment. Self-described as a living exclamation point, a traditional office felt stifling. I remember walking into the Alacrity Canada offices for my job interview and immediately knowing: this was where I was going to work, this was where I fit in. In the years since, the support and care shown to me by the rest of the Alacrity Canada team has allowed me to grow and thrive in my role as Office Manager." - Chrystal Boyd, Office Manager
