The Halifax Cycling Coalition has a full-time Executive Director who manages the day-to-day operations of the organization and carries out the strategic plan set by the Board of Directors. From time to time we also hire seasonal or part-time staff to support special projects and initiatives.
Meghan Doucette, Executive Director
Meghan is passionate about equity and urban issues. She holds a Bachelor of Management with a major in Environment Sustainability and Society from Dalhousie University and a Master of Urban Planning from McGill University. A deep commitment to challenging inequitable structures in our society influences her work as an advocate for safe and affordable mobility options. Meghan works to build a city that allows all residents to access what they need, and travel safely using the transportation mode of their choice.
Meghan has experience consulting on a variety of urban planning projects, coordinating outreach activities for the Dal Bike Centre, and working in a municipal planning department. She is a relationship-builder that believes in the power of partnerships.
As Executive Director, Meghan is grateful for the opportunity to contribute to making our city a better place to ride a bicycle. She has been commuting by bike for the past eight years and is a huge proponent of the freedom and affordability of moving through our city by bike.
Katie Clarke, Outreach Coordinator
Katie is a student at the University of King’s College in Halifax, studying Psychology and Contemporary Studies as a LORAN scholar. Passionate about women’s rights and mental health, she uses poetry and playwriting as a medium for activism. Katie is keen to see more feminist-oriented city planning implemented in Halifax, starting with an inclusive cycling culture and the creation of accessible cycling routes for all. In her spare time, Katie is an avid road cyclist and she volunteers as a literacy tutor with newcomer and immigrant Canadians.
