Current Openings

Senior Manager, Strategic Communications (Toronto)

The Pembina Institute is seeking a strategic communications expert to oversee the development and implementation of project-level communications plans across the organization, and support the communications director on implementation of the organization-wide communications strategy and plan, while providing strategic communications and engagement support for the Institute’s federal goals and initiatives.

This is a highly collaborative, leadership position, based preferably in Toronto, that requires an energetic, politically astute, innovative thinker with strong interpersonal and leadership skills and a deep understanding of the myriad ways climate policy is shaped and influenced across Canada. The ideal candidate is excellent at recognizing opportunity and builds on experience to help others adapt accordingly, all while moving forward multiple projects in different stages of development in a fast-moving, changing environment.

Because creating, executing, and overseeing interconnected communications and engagement strategies is an essential part of this role, the ideal candidate will excel at big-picture thinking while also being detail-oriented through all stages of our climate and energy work. This position involves managing other members of the communications team and contributing to the strategic review of communications materials before publication and distribution.

As the communications expert on the Institute’s federal files, this position is also responsible for mainstream, social and digital media efforts on federal issues, as well as interacting with other members of the communications team, the federal staff, and staff across the organization on a regular basis on federal files.

The ideal candidate will be passionate about Canadian climate policy, have a strong understanding of federal and provincial relations, be familiar with national and provincial media markets, and have a strong interest in climate legislation and tools, carbon pricing, the clean fuel standard, and renewables in Canada’s remote communities.

Technical Director, Reframed Initiative (B.C.)

The Pembina Institute is seeking an ambitious and goal-driven individual to join its B.C. Reframed Initiative team as a Technical Director . We are assembling a market development team to accelerate the commercialization of ‘deep resiliency’ retrofits: integrated approaches to building retrofits that eliminate carbon pollution, increase extreme weather and earthquake resilience, improve indoor air quality, and preserve affordability. Inspired by the Dutch Energiesprong program (, this initiative brings together service providers, building owners, regulators, and financiers to pilot innovative approaches to retrofits and establish conditions for replication at scale. The initial focus will be on low-rise wood frame buildings, common in B.C.’s social housing and market rental housing stock.

Decarbonizing our building sector and preparing our infrastructure for a more unpredictable climate requires a paradigm shift in how we procure, finance, design, execute, and insure retrofit services. Both the provincial and federal governments are reinvesting billions of dollars to repair and upgrade our social housing infrastructure in the next ten years. This investment presents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to modernize the retrofit ecosystem so that new solutions can be deployed at scale.

We are looking for a results-oriented entrepreneurial individual able to work collaboratively to identify and demonstrate new innovative approaches to retrofit services, and to create systemic conditions allowing these approaches to be self-sustaining and deliverable at scale.
