Kaija Belfry Munroe
Social Sciences Tutor (Canadian Studies)
BSocSc, University of Ottawa

Kaija’s passion for Canadian studies led here to a range of government posts before joining Quest—including in a provincial legislature; the House of Commons; the Senate; a government agency; and a municipal government. She has also worked with a number of nongovernmental organizations.
Her dissertation and research are focused mainly on political economy and environmental policy in Canada. Most recently, she studied why a large number of Canadian firms and business associations supported a carbon price—either a carbon tax or cap-and-trade program—after 2006-2007.
Kaija is also passionate about her family and her hobbies, which include rock climbing, biking and tea drinking.
