Now Hiring: Door Canvassers in Victoria

The Ancient Forest Alliance is British Columbia’s foremost non-profit focused solely on old-growth forest protection. Built on grassroots outreach and fundraising, we rely on stellar fundraisers to sustain our campaigns and have a strong track record of success over our 12-year history as a result. Our sights are set on achieving province-wide legislation to protect old-growth forests in BC and to ensure a sustainable second-growth forestry industry.

To achieve our goals, we’re hiring Door Canvassers to work in Victoria.* Our door-to-door outreach has never been more crucial. An immense amount of public pressure has presented a window of opportunity to save our ancient forests. We need your help to empower citizens to speak out against clearcut old-growth logging, while also driving critical fundraising for our campaigns.

Apply now to join our team of environmentally-conscious people to help raise funds and awareness about endangered old-growth forests and forestry jobs in BC. This job is great for part or full-time post-secondary students and those seeking full or part-time employment. We offer a flexible schedule, performance-based wages and canvassing hours are Monday – Thursday, 4 pm – 8:30 pm.

Testimonials From Our Canvassers

“Canvassing for the AFA has not only opened my eyes but it has also taught me a whole lot about myself, how to become more outgoing and how to engage people with a difficult topic. So far it has been one of the best experiences I have made in my life and I am happy to be able to use what I have learned moving forward.”

“I had a great time working with the AFA; I learned a lot about people! Enjoyed the small tight nit group and met some amazing friends, both canvassers and those at the door. I was able to work flexible hours, received a good commission. Had my ear to the ground with an issue I care about. Highly recommend for anyone with an adventurous spirit.”
