Who we are

At the Pembina Institute, it’s all hands on deck and it has been for the last 40 years. Our 55+ person team, distributed across the country, are passionate and dedicated, but we don't sweat the small stuff. We’re too busy tackling one of the most important issues of a generation: Canada’s clean energy transition.


In that transition, we don’t leave anyone behind, and believe each member of our team plays a critical role in achieving our goals. We ensure equity but promote individuality. We lead with curiosity — challenging our own ideas and limiting beliefs, being open to diversity of thought and opinion. We use evidence-based thinking to inform our recommendations to decision-makers and understand that to make long-lasting changes, we need to take a practical approach when collaborating with others.


Our commitment to responsible development, and our “tough, but fair” approach, using research, consulting and convening, gives us credibility with decision makers whose actions today are setting the direction for the planet. Are you ready to join us?


Meet the team

Your project management skills and proficiency with data management software tools are strong, as is your commitment to sustainability and social change.

  • Develop and maintain constructive relationships with other ENGOS, Indigenous representatives, the private sector, utilities and governments.
  • Schedule meetings, set agendas, provide briefing notes and backgrounders.
  • Support strategic planning to effectively design and execute on the Buildings program’s priorities in Alberta.
