The Rivershed Society of BC has a vision of the Fraser Watershed being a resilient watershed with salmon, people and economies flourishing in rivershed communities. As part of our mission to connect, protect and restore the Fraser’s 34 riversheds – we are seeking a dynamic individual to fill the role of Regional Engagement Manager.

The Regional Engagement Manager plays a pivotal role in fostering collaboration and outreach across the Fraser Watershed.
