Position: Communications Director
Organization: Nature Canada
Location: Ottawa, Ontario
This is more than a job. Nature Canada has always been about the love of nature, but we are at a moment in history when science is clearly telling us that we are undermining the conditions of life on Earth. We aim to be a part of reversing that trend and need a Communications Director who is able to both convey clearly the crisis while helping to build the collective agency to fix it. We know that’s not easy and are looking for a candidate who will bring all their creativity and passion to the challenge. To be clear, this is at heart a campaigning role, and in the current context, that means mostly in the digital realm.
Nature Canada connects the dots between local action and systemic change. A charitable organization, for more than 80 years, we have been Canada’s voice for nature. We work to ensure that solving the biodiversity crisis is a government priority. We advocate on behalf of other species for habitat protection and good policy. We facilitate mobilization among our extensive network of partners and individual nature-lovers to achieve our shared goals and generate the political will for needed transformation.
This position is right for you if:
We are looking for a strategic mind who can really steer all aspects of Nature Canada’s communications and digital engagement work. We have big ambitions and need someone with the energy and creativity to help reach our goals. The ideal person for us is someone who is strategic and proactive in thinking about how to reach a wide variety of Canadians including non-traditional and diverse audiences.
