Calgary, Alberta

We’re hiring!

We’re looking for a talented and motivated reporter to join our team on up to a one-year contract as an investigative journalist in Alberta

Alberta is an investigative environmental journalist’s playground. From the oilsands and their far-reaching consequences, to fires and flooding in the country’s two most important oil towns, to battles over what to do with three of Canada’s largest national parks, Alberta has a lot of big untold environmental stories.

We’re looking for a self-directed reporter who is hungry to map the influence of the fossil fuel industry on Alberta; who speaks FOI, energy jargon and science; who is sensitive to the challenges and opportunities of reporting in Indigenous communities; who has contacts in government, academia and the real world too. Skills in multimedia reporting, including audio and video, are an asset.
