“Being part of an organization that is critical to Canadians everyday life is pretty cool. I know that I’m contributing to something greater for my family, country and the world.”

Meet Krista Holland!

Krista has been working with Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) for the past 8 years. In her current role as Senior Communications Advisor, she primarily works on files for the Meteorological Service of Canada. Over the past 8 years, she has worked on a number of different files such as wildlife and environmental enforcement, compliance promotion, the Canadian Hurricane Centre and most recently, the 50-150 anniversary file in early 2021 before commencing her maternity leave to give birth to her beautiful twin girls. In fact, Krista was the originator and creator of the People of ECCC and People of Canada’s Weather Service series.

One of Krista’s favourite things about her job is that she is able to work on a number of different and interesting files that are critical to Canadians everyday life – the work is never boring!
