"I came to REM at SFU because it offered an applied, BC-focused and interdisciplinary perspective on Planning that catered to my interests in Indigenous governance and environmental stewardship."
Student Profile: Myfannwy Pope
Resource Management Master's student in the Faculty of Environment
I am in my second year of the Master of Resource Management (Planning) program. I received my Bachelor of Arts & Science with a minor in Community Engagement from McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. In the department of Resource and Environmental Management (REM), I am a member of the Resource and Environmental Planning Student Association and the Community Planning Development Lab. I am interested in social and environmental planning and public health, as well as the innovative approaches Indigenous communities have taken in these areas.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO SFU?
I came to REM because it offered an applied, BC-focused and interdisciplinary perspective on Planning that catered to my interests in Indigenous governance and environmental stewardship. Additionally, it provided me with the opportunity and financial support to return home to Vancouver.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR RESEARCH.
My research explores how a First Nation government can address housing need for their members off-reserve and the role that data collection methods play in housing governance and community-driven housing strategies. This research stems from my work on a project team performing a housing needs assessment to support Metlakatla First Nation’s Cumulative Effects Management Program. I am grateful to my project team and Metlakatla First Nation for the opportunity to do this research.
WHAT ARE YOU PARTICULARLY ENJOYING ABOUT YOUR RESEARCH AT SFU?
I am enjoying how engaged the REM faculty are in their fields and the opportunities this provides us as students. I also enjoy the supportive and friendly staff and the chance to learn from my peers.
