Imagine going to work each morning feeling proud about the difference you’re making, both in your own community and across the country. At DUC, we connect people to nature and a healthier world through wetland conservation.

DUC was founded in 1938 by a small group of passionate waterfowlers who pioneered the way habitat conservation is achieved in North America. With offices across the country and national headquarters at Oak Hammock Marsh in Manitoba, we have become one of the largest and most effective not-for-profit conservation organizations in Canada.

A career with DUC is an opportunity to be part of one of Canada’s most recognizable brands. You will contribute to a conservation effort that benefits all Canadians and help write the next chapter in a 79-year legacy of groundbreaking science, rich culture and positive change.

We respect the thoughts and ideas of our employees. Every person on our team plays an important role in conserving wetlands and waterfowl to better the quality of our country’s water, wildlife and environment. We employ a wide array of talented people with diverse interests and skills, from science and engineering to fundraising and education.

DUC’s corporate culture is rooted in the pride we feel about doing conservation work we believe in – and in the fun and friendships we make along the way. Because of this, DUC was named one of Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures for 2017.

Our Culture

Our culture is guided by dedication to our mission and commitment to our shared values


Our employees, supporters and volunteers all have at least one thing in common: a passion for conserving our waterfowl, wildlife and environment. That’s why “passionate” is the word most often used by our employees to describe their own work.


We are a science-based organization, but our innovation goes beyond biology or engineering. We respect fresh thinking that can contribute to our success. We admire those with the courage to speak up and share new ideas.It’s how we move forward.


Our conservation success is in part thanks to decades of building meaningful relationships. We reflect this in our employee culture. We connect our departments and regions to encourage a unified effort toward mutual goals.


Besides a rewarding career path, strong company culture and competitive salary, our full-time employees enjoy several other benefits.

Group Insurance

Health, wellness and the workplace all go hand in hand. We’re proud to provide our employees with a comprehensive group benefit plan to ensure employees and their families have the coverage and support systems they need to lead happy, healthy and fulfilling lives.

Time Off

We value family time and opportunities to kick back and relax. We offer a generous vacation package, paid sick days and additional paid personal days to use for appointments, volunteering or family matters.

Retirement Planning

Besides the future of wetlands, we also look after the future of our employees. We offer a pension plan, including a group RRSP program and Canada Savings Bonds through payroll contributions.

Our other benefits are priceless. Our pro-pet policy signifies our comfort, openness and flexibility. We offer tuition reimbursement, membership fees to professional associations or events, and discounts on DUC clothing and merchandise from our staff store.
