HUB Cycling is a charitable not-for-profit organization that has spent more than two decades removing barriers to cycling in Metro Vancouver while cultivating the health, environmental, and economic benefits that active transportation can bring. HUB Cycling’s mission is to get more people cycling more often. We make cycling better through education, action, and events. More cycling means healthier, happier, more connected communities. Learn more at bikehub.ca/about-us.
HUB Cycling is committed to creating a welcoming and inclusive organization. HUB recognizes that as an organization, we have benefitted from and perpetuated white supremacy culture and colonialism in our sector and our organization. We have made a commitment to creating a welcoming, inclusive organization and to working with people and communities to support them to thrive and prosper. Diversity is integral to this commitment. HUB Cycling encourages women, Indigenous people, people of color, and LGBTQIA, and individuals from other diverse communities to apply, and we encourage you to self-identify in your application. Read our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion policy at bikehub.ca/diversity.
We acknowledge that HUB Cycling, through our various projects, operates on the traditional unceded territories of many First Nations in British Columbia. Learn more about the distinct languages, economic background, and First Nations communities in regions across British Columbia on this interactive map.
HUB Cycling seeks a Community Organizer to support the advocacy work of HUB Cycling’s ten Local Committees. The Community Organizer will report to the Director of Campaigns and Inclusion. Working closely with Local Committees, the Community Organizer will collaborate with communities to identify gaps in our cycling infrastructure. The Community Manager will develop solutions to fill these gaps and work over the long term with others to build a safe and complete cycling network across Metro Vancouver.

While shortlisting candidates, we remove personal information to help us eliminate bias when making hiring decisions. Candidates with lived experiences are ranked higher in our matrix than people with Institutional education. People from racialized communities receive additional points in an effort to bring them on par with people with privileges. We do not think that our hiring process is perfect. We will continue to learn and make corrections.
