Our Beliefs

We believe that when the heart is engaged, the mind and body will follow. That is why, since our founding in 1939, Nature Canada has been connecting Canadians to nature, trying to instill in them a nature ethic – a respect for nature, an appreciation for its wonders, and the will to act in nature’s defense.

Nature Canada’s Executive Director, Graham Saul, is stepping down after more than five great years with Nature Canada, and we are inviting applications for the position of Executive Director (deadline November 30, 2022). We want to thank Graham for his leadership. We are excited about where Nature Canada is today and about what might be next for the organization under new leadership. We have a strong team managing successful programs that work to address critical nature issues, including expanding protected areas, restoring degraded forests and ecosystems, strengthening environmental laws, promoting nature-based climate solutions, saving bird lives, halting and reversing nature loss and connecting people to nearby nature. Over the past five years, our supporter base has grown from about 25,000 to over 200,000. Our Nature Network team is working to engage over 1,000 nature groups across the country, and our policy and campaigns team has developed critical relationships and moved important policy issues on Parliament Hill. Species collapse and mass extinction are urgent issues, and nothing is happening fast enough, but good work is getting done at the federal level and across the country. Thanks to Graham’s leadership Nature Canada is in good shape organizationally and financially and this is an exciting opportunity for a new Executive Director to take the organization to the next level. If this sounds like an interesting opportunity to you, please visit our careers page to learn more.
