About Greenpeace Canada:

Greenpeace Canada is an independently funded, non-profit organization that works towards a greener, more peaceful world, and to confront the systems that threaten people and the planet. We challenge government and industry to halt harmful practices by negotiating solutions, conducting scientific research, introducing clean alternatives, carrying out peaceful acts of civil disobedience and engaging the public. To maintain independence Greenpeace does not accept donations from corporations or governments. Greenpeace relies on individual donors and creative partnerships to fund our environmental justice campaigns.

As an organization, Greenpeace Canada recognizes and supports Indigenous sovereignty and the Land Back movement. We support the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) and are committed to collaboration and consultation with Indigenous Peoples to ensure our campaigns and positions respect Indigenous rights and liberation.

Greenpeace Canada is committed to a workplace that is enriched by the people, needs and desires of Canada’s diverse communities. We seek candidates with a variety of perspectives and lived experiences to effect change and will prioritize applicants from racialized and other equity-seeking groups.

The responsibilities and skills for this role are outlined below. Greenpeace Canada fully recognizes lived experiences, unpaid credentials, as well as education and work experiences from outside of Canada. If you are interested in this role, but feel you do not have all of the requirements listed for this position, we highly encourage you to still apply!

What you'll be working on:

More than ever before people in Canada understand and accept the need to transition away from fossil fuels. 66% of Canadians want to see governments do more to reduce carbon emissions and 51% believe we need to greatly slow or stop the development of oil and gas [1]. We have the technology and ability to make this much needed transition happen. However, through well-funded PR, lobbying, and sponsorships, the fossil fuel industry maintains a strong influence - consistently pushing for slower and weaker climate action.

Greenpeace Canada wants to increasingly expose the negative role the fossil fuel industry is playing in our national conversation on climate change. From our politics, to our cultural institutions, to our communities - this work will shed light on fossil fuel industry influence, how it works, and how it is impacting our ability to act on climate change. This role would be focused on delivering work that empowers the public with information that exposes fossil fuel industry influence where it is having the most detrimental impact.
