Edna Jack is our Finance Assistant at the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions.
Edna’s roots come from Stz’uminus First Nation – Ladysmith, B.C. – where she grew up learning to live off and care for the land from her grandparents and late great grandparents. As a Coast Salish First Nation person, Edna provides a holistic perspective that understands the interconnections between communities, ecosystems, and climate change.
During her educational journey, she has retained an Accounting and Payroll Administrator Diploma from CDI College and a Business Certificate from Camosun College. She is finishing courses at Camosun College for her second diploma in accounting while working with PICS.
Within B.C., Edna has diverse experience working in non-profit organizations, in all levels of government, and within First Nations. These experiences sparked her interest in contributing to an organization that works towards creating positive and healthy relationships between the land, water, and communities in an era of climate change.
