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 and support 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 – our Every Day Advocates network – to build local civic engagement with elected officials 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.
GreenPAC encourages applicants from equity-deserving communities, including BIPOC, LGBTQ2S and people with disabilities. GreenPAC will work with you to provide accommodations during meetings and board functions, if required. We are committed to making all positions accessible, welcome and inclusive for all team members.
We recognize that GreenPAC’s governance does not currently represent the diversity of the Canadian population, and that this is a significant hindrance to our strength as an organization. We are fully committed to changing this reality and are actively examining how our programs can contribute to the fight against systemic racism and oppression in Canada.
