Senior Policy Analyst
BC Government

Economics - BA, MA (2003)

Jennifer Davidson’s current position with the BC government involves developing and implementing standards for renewable energy and reduced carbon emissions from transportation fuels. She works with senior government and industry officials on challenging and high profile public policy issues like offshore oil and gas, low carbon transportation, the Canada-US softwood lumber dispute and industry competitiveness.

After graduating high school and attending the University of Toronto for one year, I decided academic life wasn't for me. Ten years later, I started at UVic in the Economics program and never looked back. I completed both my undergraduate and graduate degrees there, as well as eight co-op terms (2.5 years) of federal and provincial government employment. Co-op terms gave me the skills and confidence to work with senior government and industry officials.
