Board of Directors

Our Board of Directors is made up of active volunteers who have an interest in NWT conservation issues. The Board meets monthly to set strategic priorities and to help guide the organization towards achieving our goals.

Aimee Guile


Aimee moved to Yellowknife at the tender age of two. Although she had no say in the move, she grew up loving the land and the people of the North. After all, what’s not to love?  No matter the season, you’re most likely to find her on the water. Whether it be cross country skiing or canoeing, she is keen to take advantage of the wilderness in our backyard.

In 2015, she graduated from the University of British Columbia with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science. Returning home she looked forward to giving back to a community that had given her so much. First registered as a volunteer with CPAWS, she wanted to find a way to be more involved. When the opportunity presented itself to become a board member she jumped on it. Aimee has been a board member since 2016 and is currently serving as co-chair.

Nathan Ensing


Nathan is a Chartered Professional Accountant and runs his own accounting business in Yellowknife specializing in tax and audits.

Chris Green 

Chris has always enjoyed the outdoors and is a life-long supporter of conservation. He recently moved to Yellowknife and is practising Law with a local firm. He has legal expertise in corporate/society governance and drafting agreements, and has experience in matters relating to environmental protection legislation (including the Migratory Birds Convention Act, Fisheries Act, and Species at Risk Act). He sees CPAWS-NWT as a good fit for getting more involved in the community and contributing to his interest in environmental law.

Gordon Hamre

Gordon joined the CPAWS-NWT board after retiring from a distinguished career at Parks Canada. He most recently worked within the Parks Establishment office in Yellowknife. He also volunteers for a number of other organizations which take on numerous environmental and social issues.

Alex Borowiecka

In Memory

We are very sad to announce the passing of Alex Borowiecka. Alex was a remarkably patient and kind person, as well as being thoughtful, gentle, and unassuming. Alex joined the board of CPAWS-NWT shortly after the chapter was established. After a brief hiatus she re-joined the board in September 2016 as our secretary. She took on the onerous task of preparing minutes for which we were all grateful. She brought her patience and understanding to every CPAWS meeting and event. We’ll miss Alex. We are grateful for the time she spent with us and her contributions to our community, and to conservation of northern Canada.
