Alex Cool-Fergus

Alex (she/her/elle) is a political organizer, climate policy enthusiast, mother of two, bicycle rider and avid reader – though not necessarily in that order. She tries to honour the unceded Anishinaabeg territory on which she lives and grew up in what is currently called Hull, QC. She previously worked at the Federation of Canadian municipalities in various climate-related positions, most recently as an Outreach and Engagement Advisor for FCM’s climate policy team. She has also run a dozen campaigns at the federal and municipal levels, supported or led various climate justice campaigns and worked for ENGOs in Montréal, Yellowknife, Ottawa and Gatineau.

With the CAN-Rac Secretariat, Alex leads our government relations work pushing for ambitious, robust and inclusive domestic climate policies at the federal and sub-national levels.
