President
Ecotrust Canada
Ecotrust Canada is a federally registered charity with a 20 year history, an excellent track record of
results and a bold, important mission: to design economic alternatives that benefit people in place. A
trusted and respected brand in the non-profit marketplace, Ecotrust Canada exists to support the
transition from an economy founded on industrial resource extraction to one that more directly and
immediately benefits communities and the environment. The organization is relentlessly practical in its
approach – supporting the design, prototyping and launching of new enterprises that demonstrate that
an alternative approach to economic development is not only possible but also preferable.
Ecotrust Canada is known for being an organization that is strategic, thoughtful and innovative in
working with communities, non-governmental organizations, governments, private enterprise and other
non-profit partners. We are well positioned as one of the few organizations in Canada that has lengthy
experience working with First Nations and indigenous communities on issues of resource management,
territorial rights and culture. In this realm, Ecotrust Canada acts as a catalyst, resource, and broker.
Ecotrust Canada is looking for a dynamic and results-driven leader; someone who can communicate,
network, fundraise and motivate others to create impactful social change as well as provide strategic
leadership and top-level management to ensure that the organization consistently achieves its Mission
and Strategic Objectives. This leadership role is for someone who wants to create a legacy, someone
who will strongly lead the Ecotrust Canada team in its mission.
The successful candidate will be a strategic, inspirational leader who strongly believes in the Mission of
Ecotrust Canada and the critical role it plays, and who will be excited by the opportunity to harness the
organization’s growth and development potential in the coming years. S/he will have superior
fundraising and communication skills and over ten years of senior leadership and management
experience in non-profit and/or for-profit organizations. S/he will use their leadership skills to raise
capital and awareness for the design, support and incubation of triple bottom line economic solutions
which are good for people in place. These social enterprises are game changers for communities and
industry sectors, support the continuing work of the charity, and demonstrate what is possible.
