Experts say environmental law, consulting jobs abound in Canada
Just like in the U.S., green business careers opportunities appear to be on the rise across the border in Canada.
Gregg McLachlan - founder of WorkCabin, an environmental job website - says there are more than half a million jobs currently available within the nation's green industry, quoted by Simpatico.msn.ca.
The website lists a range of positions, including land protection program manager with The Georgian Bay Land Trust, a charity dedicated to protecting the world's largest freshwater archipelago and one of Canada's UNESCO World Biosphere Reserves.
Another interesting current opening is available for an environmental manager who will be in charge of sustainability issues, goals, strategies and policies in Mississauga, Ontario.
The Simpatico article features Dianne Saxe, an environmental lawyer, who talks about the challenges and opportunities of applying legal education to help protect the natural environment.
"I'm crazy about the environment, and that's true of most environmental lawyers," she told the source.
Saxe explains that in her day-to-day work she helps organizations understand and comply with environmental law, negotiates with the government for permits and does environmental litigation.
She also offers pro bono legal advice to green causes.
Those who are interested in pursuing a business career that also makes a difference may enrol in masters or doctoral programs offering specialization in environmental law.
