Board & Advisors

DreamRider Productions is overseen by an active and engaged Board of Directors that helps set our vision and that guards our values on behalf of the public trust. The board works with us in a collaborative leadership model, offering expert guidance to our visionary Executive Director as she fulfills our mandate to instill a conservation ethos in every school-age child in Canada.

We also have a strong and broad-reaching Advisory Board, which supports the DreamRider mission with fresh ideas, feedback and outreach, and good advice when we need it.

The members of both of our boards are community leaders who have been chosen for their expertise and their passion for creating positive change (and by our good old-fashioned instinct for knowing a great asset when we meet one).
