Rory joins JBCP with many years of experience as a government and industry executive in the agriculture and food sector. He has particular interest in reconciling Canada’s tremendous food production capacity with the reality that far too many Canadian households, including many in Victoria, are food insecure.
Rory has been involved with national and provincial food security initiatives while serving as Executive VP of Government and Industry Relations for Maple Leaf Foods. Prior to that he served with the Canadian and BC governments as a Trade Commissioner in the Canadian Foreign Service, trade policy executive at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and as BC Deputy Minister of Agriculture Food and Fisheries.
With a passion for driving collaboration across governmental, non-profit and private sector organizations, Rory looks forward to helping JBCP grow its community impact.
