The Transition Accelerator is a pan-Canadian organization that works with others to identify and advance viable pathways to a prosperous, competitive, and net-zero Canada in 2050. The Accelerator is seeking a motivated individual who wants to help drive the advancement of the organization’s mandate.
We work with partners ranging from Indigenous groups, governments, industry, and civil society to co-create practical visions of what we think the future could look like, and then build pathways to these new futures. For us, the future is economically strong, with healthy people and communities. The future is fair, with net zero emissions. Moreover, the Accelerator understands that only by working together will we be successful in attaining these ambitious objectives.
About the Role
Within The Accelerator, our Regional Pathways division focuses on supporting the transition to net zero at the sub-national level. We engage stakeholders to map out and advance region-specific strategies for achieving net-zero emissions. For this role, we are seeking someone with a diverse skill set—someone capable of organizing data effectively in Excel, analyzing large datasets, conducting comprehensive reviews of technology and policy literature, and expressing ideas clearly and concisely in writing. We are also looking for individuals who thrive on a varied workload, covering a range of decarbonization technologies and policies across different regions of the country.
Collaboration is key in our Regional Pathways division. We work closely with other verticals within The Transition Accelerator, including Electrification, Industrial Policy, and Net-Zero Fuels.

- Developing Analytical Models: Constructing analytical models to calculate energy usage and assess the cost-effectiveness of various technologies.
- Literature Review Summaries: Composing concise summaries of findings from literature reviews, distilling complex information into easily digestible formats.

In this role, we are looking for individuals who can bring the following qualifications and skills:
- Relevant Education and Experience: A minimum of a bachelor’s degree and 2-3 years of experience in a related field, which could include climate studies, clean energy, engineering, or economics.
- Clean Energy Acumen: Knowledge pertaining to clean energy technologies and policies, demonstrating a strong grasp of the subject matter.
