ECO Canada is the steward for the
Canadian environmental workforce across all industries. From job creation and
wage funding, to training and labour market research – we champion the
end-to-end career of an environmental professional. Our efforts promote and drive
responsible and sustainable economic growth to ensure that environmental care
and best practices are priorities.
We gather and analyze skills and
labour market trends within the environmental workforce and provide up-to-date,
relevant data and insights for policy, business and educational purposes. Our
reports support our stakeholders in four key areas: (1) employers—plan and
attract qualified candidates, (2) individuals—prepare for and build their
environmental careers, (3) governments—develop programs and update policies,
(4) educators and trainers—adapt their offerings to prepare the workforce that
is and will be in demand.
We provide competitive benefits and
compensation with a great work environment. We are serious about performance,
but we also know how to celebrate successes and have fun along the way!
As a member of the Research team, the Research Data Assistant will report to the Senior Research
Manager and be responsible for supporting
labour market research projects underway. The specific duties
performed by the Research Data Assistant will be determined by the current
phase of each research project and the priority of research tasks.
While each member of ECO Canada has
individual responsibilities, ECO takes a team-based approach. Everyone is
encouraged to take ownership of his/her ideas and to see them through to
completion, collaborating with key influencers as required.
