About Pain BC

Are you passionate about social mission organizations? Do you care about building social movements to bring under-recognized issues out of the shadows? If so, this may be the organization and job for you.

Pain BC is a collaborative provincial non-profit organization working to improve the lives of the 1 in 5 British Columbians living with chronic pain. Our priorities include prevention and early intervention, education and empowerment, health care practice improvement and systems change, as well as stigma reduction and research.

Partnerships are the cornerstone of our organization; we catalyze strategic alliances with other non-profits, government, health authorities, patient groups, research institutions and the business sector in order to advance our mission.

Regular in-person meetings in Vancouver are required; some intra-provincial travel may be required. Ability to work outside of regular office hours is required. Pain BC invites applications from underrepresented communities, including Indigenous people, people of colour, and people from the LGBTQ2S communities.
