Carol Dyck is a dedicated community leader, who is actively involved with several local non-profit organizations and committees. She entered into politics during the 2015 federal election after she witnessed first-hand Canada’s tarnished reputation on the international stage due to the then government’s foot-dragging on climate change action, dismantling of environmental regulations, and suppression of scientific studies. Carol believes that the Green Party of Ontario’s progressive platform offers the best opportunity for Ontario to bolster its economy while simultaneously cutting our greenhouse gas emissions and safeguarding the province’s natural heritage.
Carol obtained a BA in International Relations at the University of British Columbia. She also completed a Masters of Arts in International Environmental Policy at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies, a Masters of Law (LLM) in Environmental Law from the University of Kent in Canterbury, England, and a Masters of Science in Biodiversity, Conservation and Management from Oxford University. She believes that tackling environmental issues happens where science, law, economics and policy intercept, and uses her diverse educational background to do so. Carol is currently enrolled as a doctoral student at the Faculty of Law at Western University, where her research is focusing on marine law.
A strong believer in giving back to the community, Carol Dyck regularly engages in volunteer work, from serving on parent councils to lending a helping hand to a variety of local non-profit organizations. She previously served on the Board of Directors for the Thames Talbot Land Trust as well as was a Member-at-Large on both the Environmental and Ecological Planning Advisory Committee and the Trees and Forests Advisory Committee for the City of London. She currently serves on the Board of Directors for the London Environmental Network and for Magisterra Soloists. Originally from Vancouver, Carol Dyck has called London home since 2007 and would be proud to represent London North Centre in Queen’s Park.
