Positions: Door Canvassers
Organization: Ancient Forest Alliance
Location: Victoria, BC
Type: both long-term staff & summer students welcome

In today’s increasingly virtual society, the lost art of face to face community engagement skills are becoming more important than ever. Here is your chance to build people skills that will compliment you in any career path, and most importantly you will play a critical role in saving some the Earth’s last remaining ancient temperate rainforests!

Become a door canvasser and build invaluable skills like leadership, judgment, communication and organization. Gain recognition that you have real world environmental experience and a dedication to push for critical change, positioning yourself to stand out above the rest.

As a canvasser for the protection of BC’s ancient rainforests, you will gain practical experience in environmental conservation and climate change issues, as well as the skills to communicate these issues to the public. You’ll help build the support base we need to run our vital campaigns while empowering British Columbians to become well needed ancient forest defenders!

Ancient Forest Alliance is the main non-profit organization in BC dedicated solely to protecting endangered old-growth forests across the province. We have had many forest conservation successes since our beginnings in 2010 when we saved Avatar Grove from being logged and now thousands of people enjoy hiking through this irreplaceable forest each year!

We welcome both long term staff and summer students! Full and part-time work also available for the fall. Immediate or flexible start date, please send us your resume.  

Job perks:

  • Work with a fun, supportive team of like-minded environmentalists.
  • Take part in field trips to old-growth forests on southern Vancouver Island.
  • Flexible schedule (4 hours per week up to 30 hours per week available)

The details:

“Canvassing for AFA has been an amazing way for me to engage with my community about the issues of old growth logging, conservation and sustainable forestry, which are all issues close to my heart. Canvassing is also a great way to develop communication skills and gain valuable experience in the non-profit world. Plus, you get to work with the coolest people!” – Cassandra Bunk, Victoria Canvass Team
