Lois recently returned home to NB, after 30 years away working on environmental policy elsewhere, to join CCNB as Executive Director. Lois was most recently a Senior Policy Advisor to three Ministers of the Environment in Ontario since 2003 before establishing her own consulting practice. She was previously the Executive Director at the Toronto Environmental Alliance where she helped Toronto City Council adopt its progressive Smog Action Plan, ban the use of cosmetic pesticides, develop its Climate Change Action plan and its waste diversion plan, as well as amendments to its sewer use by-law and building permit process. At TEA Lois also successfully developed the campaign that saw provincial political parties’ commit to phase-out coal-fired electricity in Ontario.

Lois’ first job in the environmental movement was at the Conservation Council of New Brunswick in 1981 where she was employed as a summer student. She holds a Bachelor of Arts from Saint Thomas University in Fredericton, NB


Matt is the Fundy Baykeeper and Marine Conservation Director. Matt works out of CCNB’s marine conservation office in St. Andrews and aboard CCNB’s patrol vessel, the Fundy Baykeeper.





Jon MacNeill is the Conservation Council’s communications director. He studied journalism, history and political science at St. Thomas University in Fredericton. He has written for newspapers across the Maritimes and for a Member of Parliament in New Brunswick. He joined the team at the Conservation Council in fall 2015. Jon lives in Fredericton with his daughter, Lainey.




Corey Robichaud manages our websites and social media, as well as writes articles for EcoAlert magazine, our blog and other publications. Born and raised in rural New Brunswick, Corey is a graduate of the St. Thomas University’s Communications and Journalism program and an alumni of the Katimavik youth volunteer program. Corey’s favorite place to meditate on summer days is the mossy surface of a huge glacier deposited rock found in Hammond River park, just a hop and skip away from his childhood home. Corey finds clean energy technology and permaculture fascinating, and is looking forward to building his own self-sustainable dream home some day.
