Position: Executive Director
Organization: Earth Day
Location: Montréal, Quebec
Celebration Through Action, on Earth Day – April 22 – and Every Day.
Earth Day was first celebrated on April 22, 1970. Today, over one billion people in 193 countries take action every year on Earth Day, making it the largest participatory environmental movement on the planet.
In addition to the annual celebration on April 22, Earth Day Canada’s mission is to support individuals, organizations, and businesses in their efforts to improve their environmental impact.
In Quebec, Earth Day is celebrated since 1995 with numerous activities to promote environmental awareness. With its outstanding capacity to mobilize stakeholders, Earth Day has constantly grown and developed numerous action-oriented environmental programs.
These mobilization programs are developed in collaboration with major partners such as Sobeys, TD, Quebec City and REM.
In 2015, Earth Day expanded its operations to France and the French-speaking world with the acquisition of several trademarks. In 2019, Earth Day became owner of the Earth Day trademark in Canada and is now expanding across the country.
These acquisitions and programs have transformed Earth Day into a leader of the environmental cause in Canada. Aware that we must transform to support the significant growth of our workforce, projects, and partnerships both in Quebec and the rest of Canada, Earth Day Canada has decided to divide the CEO position in two positions: a President (Pierre Lussier – Founder of Tous les Jours) and an Executive Director. While the President will lead the organization’s strategic development, the Executive Director’s goal will be to optimize operational efficiency.
Earth Day Canada is therefore looking for a candidate to fill the position of Executive Director. The position is a perfect opportunity for an experienced manager who wants to make a real difference for the organization’s sustainability while contributing to the environmental cause.
Under direct supervision of the Board, the Executive Director is accountable for implementing the organization’s vision, as well as planning and coordinating the organization's operations while insuring its’ financial sustainability. The Executive Director will have the mission to inform the President regarding the organization’s financial and human resources capacities in order for the development strategy to be adapted accordingly. Moreover, he/she must develop, implement, and evaluate improvements that contribute to productivity, quality and customer satisfaction. Through his/her actions, the Executive Director ensures the profitability of the organization's overall service offering. He/she works closely with the various project directors and members of the Executive Committee.
