Community Advisory Circle Co-Chair

Alexia (she/her) is Mi’kmaw and lives on unceded and unsurrendered Algonquin territory, colonially known as “Ottawa”. Alexia works in Indigenous community care and is passionate about culture reclamation as well as Indigenizing spaces of engagement for young Indigenous leaders. Alexia works at creating Indigenized culturally safe and relevant spaces to facilitate conversations on youth mental health, including conversations on climate crisis as well as systemic barriers and racism that Indigenous youth face. Growing up, Alexia experienced a lack of education and community programs for youth to reclaim culture, so she aims to resolve some of these needs in her work.
