Born and raised on the traditional territory of the Saugeen Ojibway Nation, Erin’s fondest memories are of summers spent on the shores of Georgian Bay at his family’s non-electrified, water-access only cottage. Studying at the University of Guelph (Bachelor of Environmental Science) and the University of Waterloo (Master of Environmental Studies), Erin brings practical knowledge and experience in Participatory Action Research, statistical modelling, and community-based research to the Centre for Community-Based Research. As a white-male settler, Erin is trying to talk less and listen more. He often needs reminding, but never claimed not to be a work-in-progress. Fun fact: Erin dislikes dogs and cats, and aspires to live in a pet-free household. So far, so good.
