Caleigh Aalders

Research Assistant

Caleigh holds degrees in classical singing, vocal and piano pedagogy, and a B.A. from the University of Victoria in Environmental Studies and English Literature. Caleigh is passionate about the sociological and governance dimensions of sustainability, and her past research and policy experience has focused on sustainable agriculture, freshwater management, and Indigenous rights. As a current student in the Glendon bilingual Master of Public and International Affairs (York University), her research areas are diversifying to include foreign relations and human rights protection under international law.

Caleigh’s post secondary journey has led her to study political science and history in Brussels, learn about Indigenous ecology during a field school in Peru, and partake in an upcoming exchange at Sciences Po Paris. When in B.C., Caleigh divides her time between the freshwater policy landscape and freshwater swimming.
