A\J, or Alternatives Journal, is Canada’s environmental magazine, featuring intelligent analysis, inspiring stories and smart solutions to today’s environmental problems. A\J offers both a vision of a more sustainable future and the tools needed to take us there. And we want you to help us.
No matter the job description, you’ll work with a dedicated, fun-loving team to create, promote and distribute A\J both in print and online. We provide paid internships regularly, as well as offering a variety of volunteer and work placement opportunities.
A\J is created in a satellite uWaterloo Faculty of Environment office in downtown Kitchener (195 King West – across from City Hall).

Why work at A\J?
Alternatives Journal's role in providing Canadian environmental journalism is becoming increasingly valuable and relevant to Canadian citizens as environmental issues like climate change become more urgent and precarious with each passing year. That said, it's important to do whatever we can to support A\J. That's why I decided to work for Alternatives, because they are doing important work.
