Rebecca Rogerson grew up on Treaty 6 territory, on a small-scale family farm north of Edmonton. She moved to the West Coast in 2011 to pursue further education and quickly fell in love with the landscapes and the people. She currently lives and works on the unceded territory of the Songhees, Esquimalt, and W̱SÁNEĆ First Nations.
Rebecca has a deep interest in the connection between people and place, and a strong commitment to community. She brings with her experience from the community services sector and the education sector, as well as experience working with remote communities. She has a soft spot in her heart for rural regions and believes there is much to be learned from rural, remote, and Indigenous communities in Canada.
Rebecca has a degree in Land and Food Systems from the University of British Columbia and has studied Sociology, English and Creative Writing at the University of Victoria. She is a life-long learner and is thrilled to be joining the Ecotrust Canada team as the Community Program Manager for Climate Innovation. She is excited to continue to learn and grow alongside the Climate team and their community partners.
Outside of work, Rebecca can be found hiking in the mountains with her dog Llew, or curled up with a good book and a cup of coffee.
