The Organization

Climate Action Network – Réseau action climat (CAN-Rac) Canada builds social consensus for bold climate action by nurturing a diverse network of over 100 passionate organizations. Canada’s primary network of organizations working on climate change and energy issues, CAN-Rac is a coalition of 115 organizations operating from coast to coast to coast. Our members include all major Canadian environmental organizations, local volunteer-run organizations focused on regional issues, and organizations of all sizes and scopes in between. While Climate Action Network nodes exist all over the world, Canada’s is unique in that it brings environmental NGOs together with trade unions, First Nations, social justice, development, health and youth organizations, faith groups and local, grassroots initiatives. For 31 years, CAN-Rac has been the only national organization with a mandate to promote the interests of the Canadian climate movement as a whole, rather than any one individual organization.

Job  Summary

Reporting to the Senior Leadership Team, the Domestic Campaign and Community Coordinator is responsible for strategic convening of CAN-Rac’s membership, with a particular emphasis on Francophone groups and communities, particularly from Quebec but not exclusively, in support of domestic policy development and supporting campaigns designed to bring Canada to its fair share of the global effort to confront climate change. We are seeking a candidate who is familiar with the landscape of the Canadian climate movement, in Québec and other French-speaking regions and across the rest of Canada, who can build strong, service-oriented relationships with our 115+ members. This role will require an ability to develop and implement multi-faceted campaigns, while clearly communicating strategies and activities within French-speaking communities to communities in English-speaking Canada and vice versa.
