The MEnv is a strong multi-disciplinary program, one that has equipped me with quality analytical, research, and writing skills. More importantly, the people that make up this program are superbly qualified, are very passionate about the work they do, and show great care for their students. They have successfully prepared me for working in the broader field of environment. In 2016, I began an internship position at Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) with their Enforcement Branch and was hired as an analyst shortly after. I cannot count the number of times I thought to myself, when facing new challenges or projects, "oh, I think I know how to tackle this". That confidence and way of thinking is a by-product of this program. As an MEnv student, you are exposed to such a large breadth of topics and guided through the entanglement of very complex environmental /political /economic /social issues. I am currently an enforcement advisor with ECCC; my job is to provide operations and regulatory support to enforcement officers across the country who verify compliance with federal environmental legislation and hold polluters accountable. Even though I do not work in the field of Environmental Impact Assessment, I strongly recommend the MEnv program for anyone wishing to prepare for a dynamic and gratifying career in environmental assessment, management, or protection.
