Content Manager (Regenerative Agriculture)

We strongly encourage people with one or more disabilities, BIPOC people and 2SLGBTQQIAP+ people to apply.

THE ORGANIZATION

Regeneration Canada is a non-profit organization that promotes the regeneration of soil health across the country to mitigate climate change, restore biodiversity, improve water cycles, and support a more productive and fair food system.

We strive toward this goal by raising awareness and mobilizing Canadians about the potential of reversing climate change through soil management, and the ways in which each of us can contribute. Our activities include interdisciplinary networking through our membership, educational workshops, communications activities (social networks, web series, awareness campaigns) and presentations at events. We are committed to integrating principles of equity and inclusion throughout our activities and our organization, to foster belonging of diverse stakeholders in our movement. We consider that to regenerate the land, we must address the systemic cultural and social barriers that determine who has access to the land and resources to participate in the regenerative movement.

WORKING AT REGENERATION CANADA

We are a small, dynamic team from diverse backgrounds and personalities who share a passion for soil health. Non-violent communication, the spirit of collaboration, and inclusion are values that guide the way we work. At Regeneration Canada, we work in teams or by project, with each person contributing to the growth of the organization and to the accomplishment of our mission: soil regeneration and climate change mitigation! 

As part of our practices to make Regeneration Canada an inclusive workplace, employees are entitled to “regenerative” leave days, which can be used as employee-selected paid days off for wellness, unexpected life events, mental health and medical leave, personal or religious holidays beyond public holidays, and other employee-identified priorities.
