Much of our membership comes from our canvass team. Our canvass team is comprised of a diverse group of passionate individuals who care about our province and the work that we do. We have a team of door-to-door canvassers as well as street canvassers. We love going across the province to say hello and invite you to join our organization!

Meet our Membership Team!
You may have met one of these friendly, blue vest clad individuals on the street or at your door. Our Membership Team members are an integral part of our organization. Since 2011, they have increased our profile in the community while securing needed resources for our centre.
They're passionate and knowledgeable about Nova Scotia's environment and the Ecology Action Centre's work, and are always excited to meet anyone who wants to chat or ask questions about it.
Here's a little more about the individuals who make up this dynamic team!
Rowan moved to Nova Scotia from New Brunswick for school, and shortly after graduation began working in Fundraising and Membership for various local and international Non Profits. He started at the Centre in 2012 as a part of the street canvassing team, and has had the opportunity to interact with our members in a variety of functions ever since. When he’s not speaking with our members, Rowan can often be found hiking, camping, writing, canoeing, or performing around the Maritimes with his band The Barrowdowns.
