Senior Policy Advisor, Fisheries
Abra grew up on a farm in Syilx Territory and has been involved in food systems most of her life. She has worked closely with farmers and on food systems for almost thirty years, with a priority on food value chains and the regulatory regimes that impede or support them. In 2012, Abra began integrating fisheries into the scope of her work, recognizing the vital role that fisheries play in the vibrancy of marine ecosystems, communities and the diets of people around the world. She loves learning new things and discovering the fascinating overlaps and divisions between agricultural and fisheries policy and supply chains.
Abra is a founding member of Food Secure Canada and the BC Food Systems Network and has held leadership positions on many Boards over many years, all connected with healthy communities and food in some way.
