Join our Canvass Team!
We’re pleased to announce that our door to door canvass activities have resumed in the Greater Victoria Area and that we are once again looking for stellar new canvassers to join the team!
With an amazing crew of passionate fundraisers and strict COVID protocols in place to keep everyone safe, this is a great time to join the Victoria “Tree Team” in support of BC’s ancient forests.
Note that our Vancouver canvass team is currently suspended until further notice. Please check back for updates on canvasser and canvass director recruitment for the Vancouver team.
The Ancient Forest Alliance is BC’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 ten-year history as a result. With a new BC government in place, our sights are set on achieving province-wide legislation to protect BC’s old-growth forests and to ensure a sustainable second-growth forestry industry.
We’re hiring door canvassers to work in Victoria (Mon-Thurs, 4pm-8:30pm). Apply to join a team of environmentally-conscious people to help raise funds and awareness about BC’s endangered old-growth forests and forestry jobs! Great for part or full-time post-secondary students.
“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.” – Carmen Boehlig, Victoria Canvass Team
“Canvassing for AFA has been an amazing way for me to engage with my community about the issues of old growth logging, conservation, and sustainable forestry, which are all issues close to my heart. Canvassing is also a great way to develop communication skills and gain experience in the non-profit world. Plus, you get to work with the coolest people!” – Cassandra Buunk, Victoria Canvass Team
“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, recieved a good commission. Had my ear to the ground with an issue I care about. Highly recommend for anyone with an adventurous spirit.” – Markus, Victoria Canvass Team
“Canvassing has drastically improved my confidence in public speaking and my ability to engage meaningfully with people in all contexts. I’ve met hundreds of locals, learned from them, and grown personally from my experiences. Nothing beats the rush or sense of accomplishment after a successful night of canvassing for an important cause.” – Tiara Dhenin, Victoria Canvass Team
