Able Sail Toronto is a registered charity that allows persons with physical disabilities to experience the joys of sailing. By using specially crafted sail boats, individuals with any amount of mobility are able to sail Lake Ontario in a safe and supported environment. We hire individuals to support our summer programming by coordinating sailing excursions and being responsible for day to day operations of the program. All positions are filled for 2024, and we are accepting applications now for 2025.
