Who We Are

Trout Unlimited Canada is a registered Canadian charitable organization and has been improving the lives and health of Canadians for over 50 years. A leader in water and fisheries protection, TUC’s renowned professional staff works with volunteers and partners to protect natural spaces and improve Canadian resources. Science-based and volunteer-driven, Trout Unlimited Canada puts more work on the ground than any other national freshwater conservation organization. Through partnerships and leveraging of funds, $4 worth of work is completed for every $1 donated. Our highly trained staff supports a network of volunteers across Canada operating through Trout Unlimited Canada volunteer chapters, from PEI to Vancouver Island.

Our Mission

To conserve, protect, and restore Canada’s freshwater ecosystems and their coldwater resources for current and future generations. All of the work Trout Unlimited Canada does is directed toward achieving this mission. Our work is guided by science and research and fueled by the unending passion of our volunteers and professional staff.

Our Chapters

Trout Unlimited Canada’s full-time staff administers the day-to-day activities of the organization and provides professional and scientific support to its volunteer-driven chapters across the country.  

Our chapters and volunteers are action-oriented and are involved in conservation education, stream rehabilitation, habitat restoration, and habitat protection across Canada. We develop projects and programs that focus on the relationship between land, water, shorelines, river valleys, and the communities that live near these natural features.

Conservation Crew Lead

The Conservation Crew Lead will work under the direction of TUC’s Implementation and Management Biologists, to lead a small team to carry out monitoring and assessment, habitat rehabilitation, and public education and outreach activities. This position will collaborate with other TUC staff, partner organizations, TUC chapters, and volunteers to accomplish a variety of projects in Alberta’s eastern slopes region, ensuring work is completed in a safe and timely manner.

Work duties will frequently take place on weekends and require a mix of office and fieldwork. This job is physically strenuous and often requires an array of demanding tasks including lifting, digging, dragging, and carrying weighted items, as well as operating equipment and power tools, often in a remote setting, sometimes under inclement weather conditions. This position is based in Calgary, but work will be done in watersheds throughout the eastern slopes region of Alberta, and requires a significant amount of driving. Some overnight travel will be expected and may include camping.
