OTTAWA JOBS

Position: Outreach Canvasser
Organization: Ecology Ottawa
Location:
Ottawa, Ontario

Do you enjoy being outdoors?

Are you passionate about environmental issues and comfortable communicating with others?

Ecology Ottawa is seeking self-motivated environmentalists to join our door-to-door canvass team!

Our outreach canvass raises awareness of our issues on the doorstep, and raises funds to support our projects and campaigns.

Overview:

  • The hours are 4:00pm to 9:00pm weekdays, number of days a week flexible (option for weekend days as well).
  • Great summer/student job for the right person.
  • No experience necessary, all training provided.
  • Must be interested in learning how to fundraise for social change

Challenges:

  • It's all weather and outside, you have to love the hot days and the rain.
  • Some people find it hard to deal with rejection — not everyone is as interested in what we do as you are.
  • You need to be reasonably fit – we walk a lot!

Rewards:

  • Learn great transferable skills — communication, people skills, fundraising.
  • Gain confidence in yourself that can last a lifetime.
  • You can make good money, get exercise instead of being stuck in an office all summer, all while helping grow a grassroots organization. 

Please send your resume and cover letter to:
erik.pervin@ecologyottawa.ca
