The Ancient Forest Alliance is BC’s foremost non-profit focused on old-growth forest protection. Built on grassroots outreach and fundraising, we rely on stellar fundraisers to succeed on our campaigns. Since 2010, we've successfully campaigned to protect outstanding old-growth forests, including Avatar Grove near Port Renfrew, and we have touched tens of thousands of British Columbians through our outreach. With this current provincial government, our sights are set on achieving province-wide legislation to protect old-growth forests and advance a sustainable second-growth forestry industry.

  • Fun trips to the Sunshine Coast, Whistler, Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands and more! A great way to travel!

  • Work well in a team and are keen to contribute and learn from our expert crew

  • Are passionate about protecting BC’s endangered old-growth forests and the species that depend on them

  • Have sales, communications, OR community engagement experience

  • Are interested in learning about environmental policy, ecology, and campaigning

  • Are independently-minded and self-motivated to achieve success

  • Are natural communicators and highly proficient in English (other languages are a bonus)

No fundraising or sales experience necessary. We offer paid training and ongoing support.

 

Hours:

Depending on location, shifts are within 4:30-10pm (canvassing between 6-9pm).

Guaranteed base wage during initial training period.
