About the AFA

The Ancient Forest Alliance (AFA) is a registered non-profit society dedicated to protecting the remarkable and endangered old-growth forests in BC while ensuring a sustainable, second-growth forestry industry. The AFA has grown rapidly since our founding in 2010, reaching international audiences through our hard-hitting advocacy and awareness-raising campaigns. We specialize in public education and mobilization, building alliances with key allies, on-the-ground exploration and documentation of old-growth forests, research, and engaging governments to achieve policy change for BC’s ancient forests. In 2020, the provincial government promised to overhaul BC’s old-growth forest policies and increase their protection. By joining the AFA at this pivotal time, you can be a driver of the new policies that will determine the fate of the remaining endangered old-growth forests in BC.

Position Overview

Reporting to the Executive Team, the Campaigns Coordinator will produce a multitude of persuasive and accurate written campaign materials, give public presentations, engage key stakeholders and political decision-makers, follow and analyze critical science and policy initiatives, and help coordinate all manner of campaign activities. Bring your passion for nature, persuasive writing, project management skills, and strategic thinking to the task of protecting BC’s spectacular ancient forests.
