The Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) is Canada's voice for public wilderness protection. We're working to keep at least half of Canada's public land and water wild - forever. Campaigns of the Ottawa Valley Chapter include the Ottawa Greenbelt, Gatineau Park and the Eastern Wolf.


Volunteer Opportunities

CPAWS Ottawa Valley is seeking to renew its Outreach and Engagement Committee with about 3 to 4 new members. The Committee meets face to face every 6 to 8 weeks and works by email between meetings. The focus of the committee's work has been the development and implementation of the organization's communications plan which is designed to raise the profile of the organization in the region and also develop strategies to help increase the number of supporters of the organization. This can include donors, but also social media followers, email subscribers (e-news and action alerts) and attendees at events. We are seeking people with experience in communications, engagement, social media and events to help renew this committee and help plan some events associated with the 50th anniversary of the organization in the summer and fall of 2019. We are hoping to hire a part-time staff person to support the work of the committee who would carry out the actual work of implementing the plans of the committee, organize events and conduct outreach activities. Committee members, while welcome and encouraged to support the delivery of the program, are not necessarily expected to play that role. We see this committee as a higher level strategic / policy group that would advise.
Location: 15 rue Taschereau
Suite 240
Deadline: Oct 25, 2018
