JOB POSTING / OFFRE D'EMPLOI

Position: Environmental Outreach Canvasser
Organization: Toronto Environmental Alliance
Location: Toronto, Ontario

The Toronto Environmental Alliance (TEA) has exciting opportunities for environmentally minded, well spoken and passionate individuals to join our front-line engagement team.

For 30 years TEA has been Toronto’s environmental watchdog at city hall. TEA campaigns locally to create equitably green solutions for urban environmental issues. We proudly work alongside and for the eclectic and vibrant community that is our city.

FUN FACT: TEA is the reason Toronto has Green bins! (We think that’s pretty cool)

Face to face conversations are the cornerstone of effective community organizing and engagement. Our door to door canvass campaigners work hard to communicate TEA’s work, and raise crucial funds for our organization. Individual’s donations are the lifeblood of the nonprofit sector. Without them we cannot speak openly, freely and passionately at city hall for our community.

Don’t be fooled, this is not a sales job, nor is it your average fundraising job. The position is unique in that it entails not only raising critical funds, but galvanizing supporters to affect policy change and educate the public.

Really care about social and environmental organizations and want to work directly for one? This is the place!

Position Details

  • Craft highly personal, educational and motivating pitches for the public

  • Speak in an engaging and informational way about our work

  • Speak to potential donors and supporters outdoors and on your feet

  • Liaise with our campaigns team for latest updates on our work

  • Take the concerns of the public back to campaigns team to ensure we are serving the community effectively

Hours and Benefits

  • Both full-time and part time available

  • Minimum part time is 3 days a week – you pick the days!

  • We believe in ethical fundraising – no commissions and guaranteed hourly wages! (yay!)

  • Training wage is minimum wage (1-2 weeks)

  • Regular wages start at $14/hr and go up to $21/hr

  • Full time staff are eligible for vacation and health benefits

What do you need to succeed? An open mind and a willingness to try new things!

Ready to change the world, starting with your community? APPLY by sending a resume and cover letter to the ATTN of our Development Manager, Andy McKinnon. Please include “Door Canvass Application – (Where you read this ad)” in your subject line. No phone calls please.
