Shannon Daub

Shannon Daub leads the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives’ BC Office and co-directs the Corporate Mapping Project. The project is investigating the power and influence of the fossil fuel industry in Canada, and is jointly led by the University of Victoria, the CCPA's BC and Saskatchewan offices, and Parkland Institute. She has extensively researched the role of corporate influence in shaping climate policy in Canada.

Shannon has worked with the CCPA-BC since its early days, helping to grow the organization from a scrappy DIY outfit to a widely recognized source of progressive research and policy ideas. Shannon's work mixes her expertise in both research and communication. Her research interests include social movements, framing, environmental communication, and democratic capacity.

Outside her day-to-day work life at CCPA, Shannon has taught in the School of Communication and Culture at Royal Roads University and volunteered on the boards of organizations like the Wilderness Committee, CCEC Credit Union, and the Vancouver Public Library.
