About the Opportunity 

The Coordinator, Customer Success (Bilingual) will be responsible for ensuring that customers of Imagine Canada’s social enterprises - namely Grant Connect and the Standards Program - are deriving maximum value from our products and services, that we are acting as strategic partners in their success, and that we are constantly learning from them to inform product and service improvements.
