Toronto Wildlife Centre (TWC) promotes the peaceful coexistence of people and wildlife by providing education and expert advice about wildlife situations, and providing medical care to sick, injured and orphaned wild animals with the ultimate goal of releasing healthy animals back into the wild. Currently we help over 5,000 wildlife patients each year, treating over 270 different species including everything from the rare and provincially protected like Peregrine Falcons and Blanding’s Turtles to the more common species seen regularly in Ontario’s parks and neighbourhoods like Ruby-throated Hummingbirds and Eastern Chipmunks. The Centre is operated by a core group of highly skilled and dedicated staff and hundreds of volunteers serving many needs, from caring for our wild patients to buying the yummy and healthy groceries essential for healing and growth. As a registered charity, TWC depends primarily on the financial support of individual donors and foundations, many of which have been doing so for over 25 years.
In the near future, TWC will be moving to our forever home in the Rouge National Urban Park and this exciting new positon will play a vital role in making that happen. As the Carpentry Assistant, your main role will be to assist the Facilities Manager in building the many new enclosures needed to house our wild patients during their recovery, or in the case of our orphans grow up, and become healthy/well-adjusted wild animals ready to fend for themselves back in the wild again. In addition, you will also be assisting with maintaining existing enclosures as well as many other construction and facility related duties as needed to help us as we transition to our new home.
