Ecotrust Canada is an enterprising nonprofit powered by the vision of people and nature thriving together.

Ecotrust Canada’s Community Fisheries Program has been deeply rooted in community and solution-building in coastal BC for over 20 years. Our fisheries vision is for resilient fisheries – fisheries that meet the immediate social and economic needs of adjacent communities, without compromising ecological integrity, or the ability of future generations to meet their needs.
We are seeking an enthusiastic project coordinator, researcher, and community organizer, preferably with experience and knowledge in fisheries issues. The Fisheries Project Coordinator is responsible for working with Ecotrust Canada’s fisheries leadership team to manage a fast-paced, partner-driven scope of work, which brings together fish harvesters, fishing communities, and decision-makers around a common goal of creating more sustainable and resilient fisheries on the West Coast of Canada.
Over the course of the initial 6 months, this position will have the opportunity to build momentum toward a permanent position that will oversee a wider breadth of Ecotrust Canada’s fisheries work.
