Canada’s Chief Science Advisor meets with CRI

Posted by corey   |   December 22, 2017

CRI Management Board truly appreciated Dr. Mona Nemer, the federal government's newly-appointed Chief Science Advisor, dropping by the CRI Management Board meeting last Friday, Dec. 15 in Ottawa.

The visit was an opportunity to profile CRI's 15-year report, which includes a message from the Hon. Catherine McKenna, Minister of Environment and Climate Change, where she speaks about how co-locating ECCC scientists and technical staff at the Canadian Rivers Institute at UNB Fredericton has significantly benefited Canadians, something our host and MB member, Dr. Cash, re-iterated to Dr. Nemer during the visit.

Pictured here, from left to right, are: Frederick J. Wrona, PhD (Chief Scientist and Assistant Deputy Minister, Alberta Environment and Parks, Government of Alberta), Kevin Cash, PhD (Director General, Water Science and Technology, Environment and Climate Change Canada), Fred Whoriskey, PhD (Management Board Chair and Executive Director, Ocean Tracking Network, Dalhousie University), Dr. Mona Nemer (Govt. Of Canada Chief Science Advisor), Michael van den Heuvel, PhD (Institute Director and Canada Research Chair in Watershed Ecological Integrity, UPEI), Stella Swanson, PhD (Swanson Environmental Strategies Ltd.), Simon Courtenay, PhD (Chair of the CRI Science Directors, Professor in the School of Environment, Resources and Sustainability, University of Waterloo), Alex Bielak, PhD (Founder, Alex Bielak Communications), Anne Lévesque (Executive Director, Canadian Rivers Institute), and Jack G. Imhof (Director of Conservation Ecology, Trout Unlimited Canada).
