About WWF-Canada

WWF-Canada is a national conservation organization with an instantly recognizable brand and hundreds of thousands of supporters as well as Indigenous, academic, community and corporate partners from all regions of the country. As part of a global network, we have a half century history of fighting to strengthen and protect Canadian nature. Our vision is: A Canada with abundant wildlife, where nature and people thrive.

WWF-Canada has a long history of conservation success in Canada, none of which would have been possible without Indigenous and local communities, all orders of government, corporate, donor, academic and research institutions. With our ambitious new 10-year Regenerate Canada plan WWF-Canada commits fearlessly and determinedly to protect and conserve Canada’s nature and wildlife and the communities that rely on them.

WWF-Canada has a long history of working on conservation issues in Nunavut directly supporting community priorities and collaborative research. With Inuit communities, we helped define “The Last Ice Area”, an ecologically rich and culturally significant region in the eastern Arctic that scientists project sea ice will persist the longest in the face of a warming world. In 2019, we contributed to the work of the Qikiqtani Inuit Association, to make Tuvaijuittuq an interim Marine Protected Area with an impact benefit agreement that delivers on their promise of a conservation economy. This will ensure that communities will benefit culturally and economically from protecting this marine area, a significant part of the Last Ice Area.


Position Description

The Specialist, Arctic Conservation is a highly motivated individual that supports WWF’s partnership building in the North towards community-led conservation of Arctic marine and terrestrial ecosystems. The conservation of Arctic habitats and wildlife is a key aspect of WWF-Canada’s Strategic Plan, targeted to deliver by 2030.

The incumbent will play a part in the organizational efforts to promote community conservation priorities, advocate for the creation of resilient marine and terrestrial protected areas, increase collective knowledge of the threats that face Arctic ecosystems and prioritize opportunities to invest in successful conservation efforts. The role will primarily support Inuit-led marine protection as Canada works toward meeting its commitment to conserve 30% of its marine areas by 2030. This role blends networking, research, partnership building, and project management to assist the Senior Manager, Arctic Marine Conservation, and the Resilient Habitats team in conservation planning with Northern partners, including communities, industry, academia and governments.
