This campaign will provide digital education tools and action opportunities for stakeholders across the country to protect their lakes, rivers, and shorelines. In particular, waterfront community groups, municipalities, planners, students, Indigenous groups, teachers, and shoreline property owners will receive online toolkits created by the candidate and the Watersheds Canada team. You will develop your digital skills and soft skills as you deliver an outreach campaign to engage and equip individuals and community groups as they prevent and reduce pollution, overland runoff, and warmth from entering and degrading freshwater sources.

  • Utilize strong public speaking and organization skills as you host online forums through Zoom to engage and connect concerned individuals and community groups to local action opportunities.

  • Build your strong work ethic and teamwork skills as you work with a diversity of stakeholders, staff members, and volunteers, all while meeting multiple deadlines.
  • Hone your digital literacy in the environmental sector as you provide tools and resources to individuals and groups wanting to take strong action for Canada's freshwater. You will utilize marketing techniques, develop plans and protocols, and gain digital skills using Wordpress, HTML, Square, Stripe, NationBuilder, SEO, Google AdWords, boosted social media posts, and Google Analytics to achieve campaign goals and track deliverables.
