Are you looking for meaningful landscaping work that pays well and brings you closer to nature within the city? Would you like to work with like-minded individuals? If yes, then we want to hear from you!
At RAINscapeTO you will help co-lead an eco-landscaping team that designs, implements, and maintains beautiful earth-friendly gardens.

You will be part of a growing social enterprise that provides meaningful, culturally sensitive employment and training for emerging urban placed Indigenous people. We aim to continue to support the intrinsic connection we have as Indigenous peoples to the land. Caring for the urbanized environment within Toronto while sharing and nurturing our rich ecological knowledge is imperative for us.
As an Eco-Landscaping Co-Lead, you’ll have the support of leading the Indigenous Eco-Landscaping Crew with another Co-Lead. You’ll have opportunities to share what you know with your team members and learn from local Indigenous community leaders and experts. We’ll even help you build a career pathway that’s right for you!
Our ideal candidate has strong horticultural skills, has leadership and interpersonal skills to deliver excellent customer service and oversee their crew, and has experience in the design and construction of landscaping solutions.
Given that the incumbent of this position will oversee a team of Indigenous trainees, we enthusiastically encourage qualified Indigenous candidates to apply. We also encourage applications from BIPOC individuals.
The Eco-landscaping Co-Leads are the bridge between a team of Eco-landscapers and RAINscapeTO’s Management. As the team supervisors, the Co-Leads act as the main resource for all the eco-landscapers with regard to on-site communication, direction, and conflict resolution. In the absence of the Manager and Coordinator, the Eco-landscaping Co-Leads also liaise with clients and partners, although some decisions will need to be approved by the Manager.
