Event Coordinator


Zero Waste Canada is a non-profit grassroots organization, dedicated to end the age of wasting through better design & education!

We work with individuals, businesses and communities across Canada to support continuous reuse of resources and promote the elimination of landfills and waste-to-energy plants.

Here at Zero Waste Canada, we know that a future without waste is a big commitment and requires passion, focus, and lots of love for our big blue planet. A future without waste can only happen if we all are committed to making behavioural changes that put our environment, not ourselves, in the centre of attention. In our organization we follow the principle that every individual has the potential to be a Zero Waste Hero who can help end the age of waste. But we also know that together, we are stronger than any one individual alone can be. This is where you come in. Join us in building the Zero Waste community you want to live in.


We are looking for an Event Coordinator to join our Vancouver Chapter. The Zero Waste passionate Event Coordinator will organize and carry out many small events throughout the year and staff booths across Metro Vancouver. This includes working with volunteer committees, sponsors and strategic partners.

This is an excellent opportunity for an individual with a drive to “get the job done,” and who enjoys interacting with eager and ambitious volunteers.


You have experience organizing and running events and are familiar with what is involved. You are comfortable with social media, and know how to foster relationships with suppliers and sponsors. You are also familiar with managing volunteers, providing leadership and guidance.

Excellent English verbal and written communication skills are a must.
