Organizing Director (Canadian Freshwater Alliance)

Tides Canada

Vancouver or Victoria, BC, Canada 🇨🇦

The Canadian Freshwater Alliance (CFA) is a project on Tides Canada’s shared platform. CFA aspires for the attainment of healthy waters across all of Canada and works to achieve this by building, connecting and supporting freshwater constituencies across Canada.

CFA has exciting opportunities across the country to heighten the public narrative for freshwater health. As British Columbia implements a new Water Sustainability Act, Ontario makes critical decisions on how it will decrease pollution runoff into the Great Lakes, and as the impacts of climate change drive increasing pressures on the health of our waters and supporting infrastructure – the opportunity to inform a public narrative on freshwater health is upon us.

The Organizing Director for the Canadian Freshwater Alliance will be responsible for the design and oversight of the Freshwater Alliance’s engagement strategies on these key opportunities while leading regional organizing to support the robust implementation of BC’s Water Sustainability Act. Working alongside the Freshwater Alliance’s Project Director, the overall goal of the position is to oversee the development and implementation of engagement strategies in core operating areas of the initiative (including but not limited to BC, the Great Lakes, and National collaborations). The anticipated start date for the role is December 1, 2016.
