About Wilderness Committee

The Wilderness Committee, founded in 1980, is a national environmental charity that works to protect wild lands and safeguard wildlife. Current campaigns include protecting our bee populations by opposing neonicotinoid pesticides; Fighting to protect endangered woodland caribou and their home in the boreal forest; Defending Algonquin Provincial Park by pushing for an end to logging within park boundaries; and promoting a healthy climate by working on issues surrounding the tar sands, tankers, pipelines and fracking.

Is This Job For You?

We are currently accepting applicants to join our Grassroots Awareness & Fundraising Canvass team. Our Canvass works in residential neighbourhoods of Toronto to raise awareness about our campaigns and fundraise to support our work.

Shifts are 6 hours. Weekdays we meet downtown at the office at 3:15pm and we knock on doors between 5pm and 9pm. All work is completed by approximately 9:15pm. Weekend shifts are also available, but hours vary slightly.

Full-time and part-time work is available. Part-timers must commit to work a minimum of 2 days per week (shift hours are the same as full-time).


Pay is by the hour and based on a band system. Canvassers are paid between $14 and $46/ hour depending on performance, with the crew average being $20 per hour.
