Director – Above Ground
Above Ground, a project on MakeWay’s shared platform, promotes respect for human rights and the environment by multinational companies and their public-sector partners. We shed light on how Canadian business activity abroad contributes to human rights crises, from threats to Indigenous peoples to the global climate emergency. We advance solutions to hold Canadian companies to account for their impacts abroad, and to secure access to justice for the victims of abuse.
Above Ground produces research and analysis, facilitates collaboration and exchange, and advocates for policy and law reform. Our team, which consists of 2.75 full-time equivalent staff positions, operates in a decentralized office.
MakeWay is a national charity and public foundation with a goal to enable nature and communities to thrive together.
MakeWay does this by building partnerships, providing solutions, grants and services for the charitable sector across the country. Above Ground seeks a committed, highly motivated advocate with proven fundraising and management skills to lead our organization.
