A Passion for the Environment
Cameron Stiff’s passion for the environment and sustainable development is reflected in a career that has ranged from working within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, to supporting campus sustainability organizations across Canada, to developing sustainability initiatives within his local community including a farmers’ market and transforming parking lots into gardens. Since 2012, he has been Director of Finance and Development at Compost Montreal, a social enterprise promoting a holistic approach to organic waste management. He possesses a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Concordia University, where he is currently pursuing a Master’s of Environmental Science exploring the potential for more community scale composting.
A History of Community Engagement
Cameron was born and raised in Toronto and moved to Montreal in 2003 for his studies. Once there, he mastered the French language and fell in love with the city. Community engagement has been central to Cameron’s life and work. He has sat on numerous boards of directors and volunteered with various community organizations, including Sustainable Concordia, the Carrefour Alimentaire Centre Sud, the Urban Agriculture Lab, Regeneration Canada and the Hudson Food Collective. He has been recognized as a Sustainability Champion by Concordia University, and has spoken at numerous conferences on the importance of youth engagement in the fight against climate change.
Cameron has been part of the Vaudreuil-Soulanges community for nearly a decade through supporting the work of the Hudson Food Collective (HFC), founded by his dear friend and Hudson resident Robyn Rees. The HFC’s mission is to build a food system that is healthy, ecological and just. The HFC created the Hudson Heartbeet Community Farm at 723 Main Road to serve as a platform for people to learn about organic agriculture, to introduce young people to farming, to engage the community and to provide healthy organic food for the region. We understand the connection between food and climate, food and justice, and food and community.
A Need to Act Now
Cameron’s values align strongly with those of the Green Party of Canada, and he believes it is critical to take action for the environment, health, human rights, Indigenous reconciliation and global security now. As an elected Member of Parliament, he will be honoured to serve the people of Vaudreuil-Soulanges and provide leadership in both reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to climate change.

I’ve known Cameron for several years. We met while we were both working with Montreal’s urban agriculture community. Since I’ve known him, Cameron has worked tirelessly to take action and raise awareness about the most pressing issues we face both locally and as a global community. His understanding of the climate crisis and other social justice issues make him the ideal candidate for the Green Party of Canada’s Vaudreuil—Soulanges riding. Cameron has my full support in the upcoming election!
