[Sust-mar] 11 employment/volunteer opportunities

We've been receiving a large volume of messages at sust-mar recently, many about sustainability oriented employment opportunities in Atlantic Canada, plus some volunteer opportunities. It's that time of year, with so many summer positions with various organizations available. It will take many days to approve them all one by one, so I've taken the unusual step of combining what I could into one LONG various employment opportunities message. It's not something I plan to do regularly, but my intention is to to speed up the posting of a large amount of these messages.

Just as a heads up, sust-mar wasn't created with the idea of being primarily a 'job postings' list, though at certain times of the year (spring and early summer) employment opportunity postings do comprise a large percentage of the messages. That's fine, and please do continue submitting them. When there are a lot of employment related messages keep in mind that they may not all be prioritized, and some may not make it out on the list at all. Also, if you have multiple employment/volunteer messages from one organization please combine them if you can. 

If you are seeking employment at any time, a good site to check in on is the GoodWork Green Jobs site, http://goodworkcanada.ca/ , and this site has contributed many of the following postings.
