Work environment
The mountains are calling...

Come and fall in love with the mountains that surround us every day. Our laid-back mountain town offers easy access to majestic peaks, endless outdoor adventure, pristine wilderness and abundant wildlife.

Jasper is the largest and wildest of the Rocky Mountain National Park, extending over 11,000 square kilometres. Over 2 million visitors a year come to explore the glaciers of the Columbia Icefield, hot springs, lakes and waterfalls and the twinkling galaxy of stars.

If you have a passion for the outdoors, come live and work in this beautiful place and explore these extraordinary mountains, we offer a work life balance that will enable you to spend your free time hiking, biking, skiing, camping or just taking in the beauty of your surroundings.

Be part of a dedicated team, working hard to protect and restore our national parks and historic sites, play a role in enabling people to further discover and connect with our parks and heritage now and for generations to come.

You’ll be able to call a beautiful national park “HOME”.

Parks Canada Housing is an option that could be explored to assist you in making this happen.
