Backroads, the World’s #1 Active Travel company, is seeking seasonal Trip Leaders (guides) to lead and support our award-winning biking, hiking and multi-adventure vacations in Canada, Europe, and throughout the world. Our leaders enrich each trip with their personality and passion for travel, people and the outdoors, while providing outstanding customer service and sharing their love and knowledge of the area. Those who speak French, Italian and German and who are also fluent in English, as well as well-traveled, are encouraged to apply. Leaders are paid a competitive daily wage and gratuities. Housing and travel are provided during a Trip Leader’s season.
We are seeking candidates from all over Canada to lead our trips that take place mostly on the east and west coasts of Canada, and the Banff/Jasper area, with opportunities to work in Europe in the fall. The position will be based at our Canmore office, but Trip Leaders spend a majority of their season in the region they are leading. You will start and end your season in Canmore for training and other duties. Once your season starts, Backroads will provide housing in the region you are working in when you are not on trip. We will pay for your non-personal travel to and from wherever you are sent to work in Canada or abroad!

Since 1969, Outward Bound Canada has made it our mission to cultivate resilience, leadership, connections and compassion, through inspiring and challenging journeys of self-discovery in the natural world. A not-for-profit, charitable, educational organization, Outward Bound Canada has challenged over 150,000 Canadians to step out of their comfort zone with our unique outdoor land based learning adventures. We pride ourselves on offering transformational journeys that encourage participants to push beyond their limits and discover their true potential.
ABOUT THE POSITION
Outward Bound Canada’s programs for Indigenous youth and young adults combine the philosophy of Outward Bound with the values and teachings reflected in Canadian Indigenous cultures and communities. For more than 25 years, Outward Bound Canada has worked with various Indigenous communities and organizations to help develop inspiring and valuable programs. Outward Bound’s programs for Indigenous youth and adults are guided by the following principles:
OBC recently received multi-year funding support to significantly expand our Indigenous programming nationally. This support will enable OBC to impact more Indigenous youth through leadership development programs, career and skills development opportunities, and by providing us with the capacity to deepen our partnerships with Indigenous peoples, groups and organizations in Canada.
To lead this national initiative, we are hiring a full-time Indigenous Program Manager. This individual will oversee program development and implementation of Outward Bound Canada’s National Indigenous Leadership program strategy. This includes cultivating partnerships and engaging Canadian Indigenous communities across Canada, recruiting participants and the development of culturally relevant programming within the OBC curricula. This is an extraordinary opportunity for someone who is highly motivated and compassionate with a profound commitment to supporting the development aspirations of Indigenous peoples across Canada. The Indigenous Program Manager will be the public face and ambassador for this program.
