Katherine Forster, Ottawa Animator


Katherine Forster is the new Community Animator for the National-Capital Region in Eastern Ontario.
Prior to this new position at Faith & The Common Good, she worked at various level of government as both a program manager and project coordinator for sustainability initiatives. More recently she’s been involved with several local not-for-profits including Friends of Petrie Island, the Ottawa Bird Count and Transition Ottawa. She’s coordinated community-level grass roots projects such as the Ottawa Urban Wild Tours to national government projects for sustainable urban transportation. Her desire to promote urban ecology and local sustainability will benefit local faith communities who wish to increase the sustainability of their congregations both inside and out.
She lives in Ottawa with her husband and their pet cat, practices meditation and enjoys gardening.
