Our Staff

Lynda Lukasik, PhD - Executive Director

In August of 2001, Lynda helped to create Environment Hamilton.  She is currently focused on advocating for a climate resilient, inclusive Hamilton.  This includes pushing for the City of Hamilton to keep our urban boundary firm in order to protect prime farmland and focus on building transit-friendly, higher density communities within the existing urban area.  Lynda also advocates for  improvements to local air quality through Stack Watching, by serving on the commuity liaison committees for ArcelorMittal Dofasco,Stelco and RAIN Carbon (Ruetgers).  Lynda also serves as the watchdog of the provincial Environmental Bill of Rights registry, making others aware of important permit and policy postings and ensuring Environment Hamilton is actively engaged in commenting on these applications. 

Lynda has a PhD in Urban and Regional Planning from the University of Waterloo, a masters of Environmental Studies from Dalhousie University and a B.Sc (Honours) in Biochemistry from McMaster University.
