Position: Environmental Outreach and Fundraising
Organization: Wilderness Committee
Location: Toronto or Ottawa, Ontario

About Wilderness Committee

The Wilderness Committee is a grassroots, people-powered, citizen-funded organization working to protect Canada's wildlife and wild places. Founded in 1980, we are a national, registered charity. Some of our current campaigns include defending bee populations by opposing neonicotinoid pesticides, opposing logging in Algonquin Park and protecting our lakes and rivers from phosphate run-off.

About Our Environmental Outreach and Fundraising Team

We are currently accepting applicants to join our Door-to-Door Outreach & Fundraising team. Our team works in residential neighbourhoods of Toronto and Ottawa to raise awareness about our campaigns and fundraise to support our work. Excellent communication skills, attention to detail and good record keeping are all important assets. Above all we want to recruit passionate and enthusiastic environmentalists who share our organization's values and ideals.

How is working for us different?

Because we don't hire through third party agencies you'd be working directly with the Wilderness Committee, gaining valuable experience in the non-profit sector. Our goal is to hire people that share our passion for our issues and can communicate it to others. When we raise money we don't only accept monthly contributions – people can support however they like – one-time and monthly contributions are both welcome. Unlike some agency street canvasses, we aren't standing on street corners hassling people walking by - we're pro-actively reaching out to people in the comfort of their homes in our many environmentally friendly neighbourhoods. We're visiting past supporters as well as new people - so it's not all cold calling!

Pay and Hours

  • Pay is based on a band system and is between $15 and $46/ hour depending on performance (current average approx $25/hour)
  • Shifts are 6 hours long: Monday - Friday, 3:15-9:15pm, weekend shifts available once you're established.
