In 2012 she graduated from the University of Ottawa with an honours Bachelor of Social Science in International Development and Globalization (Co-op). Having completed numerous co-op and FWSEP work terms with Environment Canada, Industry Canada, and Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development, Candice knew she wanted to continue her studies, but focus on environmental issues. The MAEP was a natural fit. Her primary research interests include federal environmental policy, social movements, policy reform, and political ecology. Beyond her studies, she is the elected student representative on the MAEP Graduate Committee.
Speaking to her role as student representative on the Graduate Committee she said, “The MAEP has done an exceptional job of addressing student feedback. Collaboration between students and faculty, both for research projects and administration of the program, has been a prominent feature of the MAEP and will ensure its success.”
