Position: Social Media and Creative Officer

The Opportunity

Strong digital and web-based communications are the backbone of how Nature Canada is engaging nature-lovers across Canada. This is more than a job. Nature Canada has always been about the love of nature, but we are at a moment in history when science is clearly telling us that we are undermining the conditions of life on Earth. We aim to be a part of reversing that trend and need a communicator who understands the importance of social media to help us successfully convey the crisis. We are looking for a digital campaigner who can plan and execute cutting-edge campaigns and contribute their expertise to results-oriented strategy discussions. Our goal is to empower nature-lovers across Canada to take action for the wildlife and wild spaces they value.


Nature Canada connects the dots between local action and systemic change. A charitable organization, for more than 80 years, we have been Canada’s voice for nature. We work to ensure that solving the biodiversity crisis is a government priority. We advocate on behalf of other species for habitat protection and good policy. We facilitate mobilization among our extensive network of partners and individual nature-lovers to achieve our shared goals and generate the political will for needed transformation.
