Volunteers are at the heart of Greenpeace. We are always looking for passionate people who can help! As you know, there is a lot of work to be done, and we can’t do it alone. We offer many unique opportunities from participating in high-profile actions to discussing environmental issues with the public at festivals, conferences and other tabling events.

Your first step in becoming a volunteer is signing up for our Volunteer Newsletter. You will be sent regular updates and you will be notified of important volunteer orientation and planning meetings, as well as when we are looking for people to participate in specific activities. We may ask you to attend an event with us, paint a banner, help us in the office, or assist us in organizing an activity!

We have regular volunteer opportunities near our regional offices in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal. So if you live in one of these cities, your second step is to attend one of our orientations meetings and get active!

If you don’t live in one of these cities, we sometimes take action in different parts of the country and may need your help. We'll keep you informed; however these opportunities are not as frequent, so if you are really eager, it’s best to sign up as a Cyberactivist and work from anywhere,or if possible, join one of our semi-autonomous Local Groups near you and connect with other Greenpeace volunteers in your local area. 



Thank you for your support!
