About GreenPAC

GreenPAC is a non-partisan, non-profit organization working to build and support environmental leadership in elected office. We do this in three ways: (1) We help elect environmental leaders of all major parties running for office and have run successful endorsement campaigns in the Federal (2015, 2019), Manitoba (2016), B.C. (2017) and Ontario (2018) elections; (2) We run a Parliamentary Internship for the Environment program, now in its third year, which places interns with MPs to support environmental leadership on Parliament Hill and helps prepare young Canadians for careers as environmental champions; and (3) We work with individuals and community groups across the country to build local civic engagement with elected officials on the environment (this is a new program area for GreenPAC, stemming from 2019’s 100 Debates on the Environment).

GreenPAC is an ambitious, curious and creative group with a good sense of humour. We want our work to be rewarding and fun. We currently operate as a virtual team, with staff in Toronto, Hamilton, and Ottawa.

Position Overview

In 2019, GreenPAC built a national network of community organizers and, through its 100 Debates on the Environment project, helped make the environment a priority issue for policymakers in the last federal election. GreenPAC is planning a new initiative called Every Day Advocates, to build on this mobilization and strengthen the environmental sector’s capacity to drive meaningful policy change. The Community Engagement Coordinator will support the Program Manager in the planning and implementation of this new program, particularly in expanding our national network of community organizers and helping to develop tools, resources and training to help organizers be effective advocates.
