We are an established and impactful non-profit environmental organization that works to empower Hamiltonians to implement greener practices in their homes and communities to make our city a climate champion. We operate out of EcoHouse – an 1850s farmhouse in east Hamilton with 2 acres of gardens and sustainable living demonstrations. Our team is focused on making positive environmental action happen every day and we use creativity, practical tools, and demonstrating environmental action to engage our community to achieve our mission.
We are committed to being a living wage employer. We are certified with the Ontario Living Wage Network. This network calculates the living wage in each region of Ontario based on the cost of living for the area. In Hamilton, the living wage is $20.80/hr (2023-2024).
We are committed to implementing justice, equality, diversity and inclusion practices within our workplace and to achieving the 50-30 challenge diversity targets.
We are committed to investing in staff growth and wellness by providing professional development support, medical and dental benefits and insurance and paid emergency leave days for full time employees, and a flexible work culture.
We are an equal opportunity employer and we will accommodate any needs under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act and the Ontario Human Rights Code as requested.
