Keerat Dhami

Executive Assistant

At Canopy, Keerat assists the Executive Director in their efforts to transform the marketplace and advance forest conservation and rights for communities.

More about me 

I am an award-winning campaigner and community organizer. I cut my teeth campaigning for a climate-resilient Toronto and published a report outlining the Government of Canada’s obligations to act on climate change while completing a degree in Geography from the University of Toronto.

My appreciation for non-profit organizations as instruments for individuals to work together to turn shared convictions into action inspired my involvement in the incorporation of Peel Region’s first climate council, and a career in environmental NPOs. I have six years of expertise in ENPO management, engagement and communications.

Why forests are important to me 

Forests, like humans, have an inherent right to exist and thrive.

Why Canopy 

Canopy is creative and tenacious in its pursuit to transform the marketplace and leave a long-lasting impact on the well-being of our planet.

What ruffles my feathers
