Recent Canadian studies show alarmingly high rates of FASD in the general population, with estimates that FASD affects 4% of the Canadian population.

The majority of work is on election day only. However, there is a wide range of casual roles and opportunities to work throughout an election period, typically around eight weeks, including roles in early voting centres, mobile polling and after election day. This role can advance your career in the community sector, so register your interest sooner rather than later.
