Project Director, Shift

Toronto, ON

Canadian pension funds manage $1.5 trillion on behalf of Canadian savers and beneficiaries. In comparison to leading funds around the world, they lag in addressing the challenge of climate change. Shift, a project on Tides Canada’s shared platform, is a unique Canadian initiative that engages savers and beneficiaries with their pension funds to reduce climate risk which could put their retirement savings at risk and shift investments to low carbon opportunities.

The Director will lead Shift’s second phase of activity and growth, building upon established relationships, the heightened interest among investors, and the urgency for action. Advancing Shift’s goals – to improve climate risk reporting, reduce carbon emissions, and shift to investments that help achieve a low-carbon economy – is an opportunity to make a major impact. The Director will be supported by and report to the Shift Steering Committee (with direct liaison to the Steering Committee Chair) and an expert Advisory Council helps guide the initiative.
