We’re looking for a Communications Specialist who can help us expand our reach and connect with the right clients. With an established portfolio of wedding films and a growing portfolio of small business work, we’re looking to better showcase our films and more clearly define and distinguish our approach.

The Communications Specialist will also support our client outreach program as we work to share our decade of knowledge from the wedding industry with other vendors and potential clients in an effort to support meaningful, sustainable, and intentional wedding practices on Vancouver Island.

International students include anyone who is temporarily in Canada for studies and who is not a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or person who has been granted refugee status in Canada. Youth awaiting a refugee status ruling, as well as those who hold a temporary visitor visa, youth visa or work visa are ineligible. As the objective of the Canada Summer Jobs program is to support youth entering the Canadian labour market, the temporary nature of an international student’s time in Canada does not allow for a long-term connection to the labour market.
