This role described below is part of CBC’s CAPE program which is specifically for people with disabilities*. CAPE is a twelve-week paid placement program that aims to kick-start the careers of people with disabilities, eliminate barriers to employment, and showcase the talents of this traditionally underrepresented group.

  • The Employment Equity Act identifies and defines persons with disabilities as: a person with a long-term or recurring physical, mental, sensory, psychiatric or learning impairment who consider themselves to be disadvantaged in employment by reason of that impairment or who believe that an employer or potential employer is likely to consider them to be disadvantaged in employment by reason of that impairment, as well as individuals with functional limitations due to their impairment that have been accommodated in their current job or workplace.

Content: You will be part of ensuring that our stories are fair, balanced, accurate, and thoughtful, and resonate with the communities we serve. You will help further our original, enterprise and investigative storytelling and ensure we are talking about what matters most to people throughout Vancouver and the rest of the province. You’re innovative and will try new things, new workflows and new story treatments. You inspire others to do the same.
Community: As the industry shifts, local news and community storytelling is more important than ever. You will understand the diverse and changing population in British Columbia and the importance of reflecting all our communities in our content.
