Join the Ancient Forest Alliance's team of passionate and engaged individuals, protecting BC’s endangered old-growth forests!

We are seeking natural leaders and confident communicators to drive the AFA’s fundraising and impact in Greater Victoria.

The Ancient Forest Alliance is BC’s foremost non-profit focused on old-growth forest protection. Built on grassroots outreach and fundraising, we rely on stellar fundraisers to succeed on our campaigns. In our short 8 years we successfully campaigned to protect outstanding old-growth forests including Avatar Grove near Port Renfrew and Echo Lake near Mission and we have touched tens of thousands of British Columbians through our outreach. With this current provincial government, our sights are set on achieving province-wide legislation to protect old-growth forests and advance a sustainable second-growth forestry industry.

We are now seeking door and event canvassers to help put us on our path to success!
