Are you a graphic designer, illustrator, copy-editor, videographer, web designer (or other creative!) looking for gig work? We collaborate with many talented, creative individuals across Canada (and beyond) that bring our research to life. 

Graphic designers:

We rely on you to lay out our digital and print materials, including reports, pitches, and decks full of all sorts of visual elements like charts and graphs that sometimes we ask you to reimagine for us.


We’re known for the colourful and imaginative illustrations that accompany our research. We rely on you to turn both simple and complex topics into dynamic visualizations. This includes illustrations for the cover and throughout a report (online and sometimes in print), for blogs on our website, and more.

Writers + Copy-editors:

We rely on you to do all the things we forgot along the way using the Chicago Manual of Style and the Can Ox Dictionary. In most cases, we’re looking for light copy-editing. This could include:

  • Mechanical editing (spelling, punctuation, capitalization, etc.)
  • Language editing (consistency, clarity, grammar, etc.)
  • Correlating parts (tables, figures, endnotes, etc.)
Videographers + Photographers:

Once we’re able to have in-person events once again, we like to capture them for those who are unable to attend. We rely on you to capture our best angles.

If you think you might be a fit for any of this work, please complete the short form below.

At the Brookfield Institute for Innovation + Entrepreneurship (housed at Ryerson University), we’re motivated by the potential of the innovation economy. We believe Canada can build prosperity that will be more widely shared than ever before. To achieve this future, Canada will need forward-looking insights and new thinking to advance actionable innovation policy.

Ryerson University welcomes those who have demonstrated a commitment to upholding the values of equity, diversity, and inclusion and will assist us to expand our capacity for diversity in the broadest sense. In addition, to correct the conditions of disadvantage in employment in Canada, we encourage applications from members of groups that have been historically disadvantaged and marginalized, including First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples, Indigenous peoples of North America, racialized persons, persons with disabilities, and those who identify as women and/or 2SLGBTQ+.
