Headshot of Aimee MacDonald

Aimee is a white settler living and working uninvited on unceded Coast Salish Territory of the traditional shared lands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and səlilwətaɬ First Nations. Aimee loves working at the Wilderness Committee because it’s a place where she is surrounded by thoughtful and courageous colleagues who inspire and challenge her to keep working to create the society she wants to live in. In her experience, the Wilderness Committee approaches the environmental movement through a lens of justice and centres this in all campaign work – it is why, once Aimee started as a canvasser in 2005, she just never left. Her connection to nature ranges from getting soaking wet biking to work in pouring winter rain to hiking along beautiful beaches in Clayoquot sound. Aimee became active in the environmental movement because she deeply enjoyed sorting garbage, but these days she has a deeper analysis of her own values that support her activism.
