Watching Our Waste-line

Dawn Tremblay was born in Fort Simpson and raised
in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories (NWT). After high
school, she went south to university. She returned home
with a political science degree, and an appetite for more
northern knowledge. So Dawn sought out opportunities
and completed a certificate in circumpolar studies with the
University of the Arctic through Aurora College, followed
by a semester at the Dechinta Bush University. Dawn is
currently working for Ecology North, an environmental
non-profit organization with charity status. Her Fellowship
research is about sustainable waste management, with a
focus on a tire stewardship program for the NWT and the
organics recycling program in Yellowknife. In her spare time,
Dawn likes to get outside with her son and her dog.
