About GreenPAC

GreenPAC is a non-partisan, non-profit organization working to inspire, activate and amplify environmental leadership in politics. We want to see the health of our planet become a driving force in Canadian politics, at all levels. We do this in three ways:

  1. Helping elect environmental leaders across parties during elections, including through candidate endorsements
  2. Building the political engagement, knowledge, and leadership capacity of young environmental champions through our Parliamentary Internship for the Environment program and FLIP (Future Leadership in Politics) programming
  3. Engaging environmental advocates and voters during elections and in between through training, debates, and educational events - to build civic engagement and capacity to hold elected leaders accountable for their commitments (e.g. Every Day Advocates and Debates on the Environment).

GreenPAC is an ambitious, curious and creative group with a good sense of humour. We want our work to be rewarding and fun.

GreenPAC encourages applicants from equity-deserving communities, including BIPOC, LGBTQ2S and people with disabilities. GreenPAC will work with you to provide accommodations during meetings and board functions, if required. We are committed to making all positions accessible, welcome and inclusive for all team members.

We recognize that GreenPAC’s governance does not currently represent the diversity of the Canadian population, and that this is a significant hindrance to our strength as an organization. We are fully committed to changing this reality and are actively examining how our programs can contribute to the fight against systemic racism and oppression in Canada.
