Members belonging to communities that experience marginalization have the opportunity to self-identify during the application process.

Ecojustice strives to ensure that our online application system and recruitment process is accessible to individuals with different abilities, and we have various accommodations available if you need one. If at any point during the application and/or recruitment process you require an accommodation, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at
