Scott is both an expedition team member and leader, and Adventure Canada’s Director of Sustainable and Regenerative Travel.
In sustainability, Scott brings over thirty years of experience. Recent roles have included executive, entrepreneur, investor, advisor, writer, and speaker in the environmental and sustainability communities.

As a seafarer, Scott has sailed aboard ships and boats in latitudes both high and low. He was expedition manager for the Canada C3 project (Toronto to Victoria via the Northwest Passage, as part of Canada’s 150th birthday), has completed multiple sailboat trans-Atlantic voyages, completed the first-ever circumnavigation under sail of the Manicouagan Reservoir (the Eye of Quebec), managed and sailed aboard Arctic Tern expeditions, and has run his own charter boat in the Caribbean.
Once, he even spent eight weeks living the “castaway” life alone on a desert island getting all his protein by hand from the sea! Scott is qualified as a Captain to the RYA Yachtmaster Offshore standard and is a scuba diving guide, divemaster, and safety rescue diver.
Scott lives in Chelsea, Québec, in a home overlooking the Gatineau River, and was educated as a biologist at Trent University.
