Last week, the Royal Society of Canada ushered in a new cohort of fellows as well as its class of 2021—and among them, were four members of the MEOPAR network, representing Canada’s ocean research from coast to coast.

Dalhousie University’s Dr. Julie LaRoche was one of 89 fellows from across the country who were elected by their peers for the calibre of their scholarly, scientific and artistic achievements. Joining Dr. LaRoche is MEOPAR partner and Dalhousie University faculty, Dr. Boris Worm, who founded the Ocean Frontier Institute/National Film Board initiative, Ocean School.

The good news doesn’t stop there. This year, Memorial University’s Dr. Max Liboiron and University of Victoria’s Dr. Natalie Ban both joined the RSC College, which recognizes mid-career leaders addressing major challenges and seizing new opportunities.

Major congratulations to Dr. LaRoche, Dr. Worm, Dr. Liboiron and Dr. Ban! MEOPAR is proud of the work you’ve done and excited for what discoveries lie ahead.
