Allo! My name is Gabrielle Veilleux and I am a Rural Program Coordinator at Canadian Roots Exchange. I am a settler of French-Canadian heritage who has spent most of their life on the traditional lands of the Anishinaabe and the Cree in Northern Ontario. I have an academic background in Biology and Science Communication which is a fancy way of saying I am a nature nerd and I am most definitely going to talk to you about it. I now live on Tsimshian Territory in Terrace, BC, where I enjoy spending time in my garden and building relationships with the people, the land, and the water of this place.
