Jason grew up in the communities of Nain and Makkovik, Nunatsiavut, just twenty yards from the Atlantic Ocean. He spent his childhood extensively travelling the Labrador coast with his father—hunting, fishing, and assisting on tours and boat charters.
Now, living just twenty yards from Lake Ontario in Port Credit, Jason is a professional Expedition Leader, guide, and bear monitor. He believes in the power of travel as a transformative, educational experience. During the Arctic winter months, he assists in the planning of quality Arctic and sub-Arctic expeditions as a member of the Operations team. Jason is an expert logistician, with experience coordinating educational and cultural tours in a wide range of environments.
He believes in the importance of cultivating long-standing relationships with local operators and organizations so that Adventure Canada’s visits are truly beneficial for everyone involved.
Jason has been recognized as a Youth Role Model by the Nunatsiavut Government for his work in education. He routinely takes on consulting roles for a variety of regional governments in the Canadian North and Greenland. A board member on Travel Nunavut, he has also been inducted as a member of the Explorer’s Club, and as a fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society. He is the proud father of two girls.
