Career Opportunities

Navera is dedicated to building strong, healthy families and individuals by providing professional counselling, education, and community programs. Our employees enjoy a supportive work environment, competitive benefits, opportunities for professional development, and, above all, an opportunity to work as part of an organization that makes a difference to people in the community.

Navera Community Connections Inc. is recruiting dedicated and passionate individuals to provide leadership as Volunteer Members of the Board of Directors. This is an opportunity to work with experienced professionals and share skills and knowledge while guiding an organization that is making a difference in the community.

The Board of Directors is recruiting applicants who possess skills and expertise in a variety of areas including accounting, legal, education, communications, marketing and other areas as well. We strongly encourage applicants from diverse groups including, but not limited to, Indigenous applicants, members of racialized groups, persons with disabilities and/or members of sexual minority groups and people of all ages to apply.

Directors must be at least eighteen years of age, able to complete a Criminal Reference Check and reside in Saskatoon and Area.

Directors guide the organization strategically and provide formal oversight on behalf of funders, donors and the broader community. Directors are accountable for the monitoring and oversight of the organization’s performance goals, ensuring financial accountability and providing feedback and guidance to the Executive Director.


Navera enriches the lives of the people we serve by navigating challenges and creating possibilities. We do this through early learning centres, counselling and mental health services, and a range of community programs.

Community Partnership

Navera wants to foster a sense of peace and belonging in collaboration with our community partners.

Our programs accomplish this by leveraging existing partnerships to provide support for individuals and families in becoming active and engaged community members.
