Position: Environmental Manager
Organization: Marché des Éclusiers
Location: Old Port Montreal, Quebec

Located in the heart of the Old Port, Marché des Eclusiers hosts a seasonal restaurant, a bar and a farmers’ market. Our mission is to create the connections from field to plate. Consumers can taste the ingredients prepared with care at the restaurant & bar, and shop them at the local farmers’ market. We strive to showcase the diverse agricultural farming culture of Quebec.

We are looking for a motivated candidate to help us be the best version of ourselves in respect to the envvironment and locally sourced products.

Sustainability Agent.

The goal of the Sustainability Agent is to ensure that systems are in place that reduce our environmental impact through a variety of streams: compost, recycling, up-cycling and the use of local products and producers. The job will also entail garden maintenance, plant care, light food prep, promotion of our affiliated farmers market and other projects and events that occur on-site.


  • Ensuring that employees are familiar with and are properly using our recycling protocols, making sure that bottles and cans are being returned for consignment as needed.
  • Elaborating innovative up-cycle projects out of wine bottles and cans and other things that could be reused instead of thrown out. Find innovative uses for the things other people throw away.
  • Identifying professional grade, eco-responsible products that could be used to replace existing products at a similar cost.
  • Examining our existing products to determine if there is a locally sourced equivalent.
  • Assisting our horticulturist in planting and caring for our on-site gardens and planters.
  • Creating and enforcing protocols for reduced food waste, organizing pick-up of leftovers for local charities (e.g., Dans la Rue, Mission Bon Accueil)
  • Assisting in the promotion of our farmers market by passing out flyers and finding drop off spots for flyers.
  • Farmers market help: helping with set-up and tear-down, passing out flyers in the neighbourhood, being an on-site resource for information regarding the market and our environmental initiatives as well as other events occurring in the old port.

The goal of this position is to provide young people with an opportunity to improve the world around them in small concrete ways. We aim to provide the selected youth with a safe, dynamic and challenging work environment which will provide the candidate with experience in the food industry and provide insight into the challenges, both financial and environmental, that small, local businesses face every day. The goal of the position is to teach young people how to balance different responsibilities while remaining focused and friendly. This will provide experience in customer service as well as administrative tasks, and provide insight into food production and a chance to work alongside local food producers and farmers.

The job is 6 hours a day 5 days a week from Tuesday to Saturday.
