Growing up in Northern Ontario provided Roch an opportunity to cultivate a passion for the outdoors.  Having recently completed his schooling at the University of Ottawa and some time as a volunteer conservationist on the Galapagos Islands, Roch moved to Dawson Creek in September 2015.  Roch is eager to get involved in the community and to continue growing his passion for the outdoors by taking in all the region has to offer.
