About GreenPAC
GreenPAC is a non-partisan, non-profit organization working to build and support environmental leadership in elected office. We do this in three ways: (1) We help elect and support environmental leaders of all major parties running for office and have run successful endorsement campaigns in the Federal (2015, 2019), Manitoba (2016), B.C. (2017) and Ontario (2018) elections; (2) We run a Parliamentary Internship for the Environment program, now in its third year, which places interns with MPs to support
environmental leadership on Parliament Hill and helps prepare young Canadians for careers as environmental champions; and (3 ) We work with individuals and community groups across the country to build local civic engagement with elected officials on the environment (this is a new program area for GreenPAC, stemming from 2019’s 100
Debates on the Environment). GreenPAC is an ambitious, curious and creative group with a good sense of humour. We want our work to be rewarding and fun. We currently operate as a virtual team, with
members in the Toronto, Hamilton, and Ottawa areas.
