Environmental Defence is a leading Canadian environmental advocacy organization that works with government, industry and individuals to defend clean water, a safe climate and healthy communities.
Reporting to the Executive Director, the Toxics Program Senior Manager is responsible for leading Environmental Defence’s efforts to achieve strong and equitable protections for Canadians and the environment from toxic chemicals and pollution.
The Toxics Program Senior Manager will work in close partnership with environmental and health groups to reform Canada’s cornerstone pollution prevention and toxics law, the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA), and lead market campaigns to compel corporate action to eliminate chemicals of concern such as bisphenols, PFAS and phthalates from consumer products. Additionally, the Toxics Program Senior Manager will oversee a campaign to hold the oil and gas industry accountable for its toxic pollution and its impacts on Indigenous communities and the environment.
We seek a highly committed, experienced, and outgoing program manager with a penchant for law reform, public policy development, creative campaigning, and scientific literacy and expertise with regard to chemicals and health.
