Justine Townsend

PhD Candidate, Department of Geography, Environment and Geomatics, University of Guelph

I am a PhD Candidate working at the intersections of environmental and social justice, and living in unceded Coast Salish territory. My doctoral research interrogates the possibilities for decolonization and reconciliation through the support of Indigenous-led conservation in Canada. This builds on my Masters research, which explored Haida self-determination and land use planning on Haida Gwaii. My current research is deeply informed by eight years of environmental consulting experience working primarily with industry, and First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples in the context of consultation for environmental assessments of mining projects in Canada.
