Marika Brown

Project Coordinator

As Project Coordinator for Forest NB, Marika coordinates the Priority Occupations Forest Sector Action Plan. The action plan is dedicated to engaging with key provincial departments, institutions and industry stakeholders in making noticeable change in the forest sector labour force. This multi-initiative action plan aims to tackle labour gaps occurring now and those predicted to occur in the near future by addressing educational needs through pre-employment and post-employment skills training, recruitment and retention of domestic and international skilled workers and generating a strategy to better protect the sector from future labour gaps. Marika got her start working as a forest research technician at the Canadian Forest Service in Fredericton, where she worked on various projects dedicated to understanding the effects of forest herbicides on the ecology of vegetation, amphibians and invertebrates. She then went on to complete her Masters of Science at the University of New Brunswick, where she studied the effect glyphosate applications in managed forests were having on flowering plant and bumblebee communities. In her free time, Marika enjoys exploring the Maritimes by means of ski, foot or paddle and in her down time on the couch cuddled up with her two cats.
