What Do Peer Champions Do?

Peer Champions take on the role of holding two educational events in immigrant and refugee communities about domestic violence over the course of a year. It's a flexible role that allows you to be creative and design your own events, with support from the Campaign Coordinator.

What Supports Do Peer Champions Receive?

Peer Champions with the IRCNFF Campaign receive training, resources, and ongoing support from the Campaign Coordinator. They will also receive an honorarium to support their work.

Who is Eligible to Apply?

OCASI is looking for 16 Peer Champions from diverse regions of Ontario. Peer Champions must be part of an immigrant or refugee community. All genders are encouraged to apply - we are hoping for at least 8-9 Peer Champions to be from areas outside of the GTHA areas this year. We are also prioritizing applications from Indigenous Communities, the LGBTQAI+ community and the (dis)ability communities.
