We’re looking for a person who is engaged in the transportation and urban planning space, and wants to influence the narrative around these issues in Ontario. The ideal candidate is excited about crunching the numbers behind a policy decision and knows where to find the data to get that done.

The location for this position will be our Toronto office.

  • Represent the Pembina Institute at meetings and forums
  • Advocate for solutions to key environmental issues and be an effective critic when necessary

Essential Qualifications

  • A degree in engineering, planning, sciences, economics, law, public policy or related field —graduate degree preferred.
  • Excellent problem solving and analytical skills.
  • Knowledge of economic, environmental, social and/or political aspects of transportation — could include transit, freight and goods movement, electric vehicles and electrification of transportation, and transit oriented development.
  • Experience quantifying environmental benefits of policy decisions and options
  • Familiarity with Ontario planning frameworks and key policies (e.g. Metrolinx’s Regional Transportation Plan and the provincial Growth Plan).
