Courtney Kehoe

Managing Director
Invest in Nature Hub


Courtney joins The Natural Step team as Managing Director of the new Invest in Nature Hub, a collaborative multi-stakeholder initiative that intends to stimulate new public and private investment in Canada’s nature.

Prior to taking on this role, Courtney worked for six years as a consultant with Stratos Inc. – a management consultancy specializing in environmental, social and governance issues. She brings experience working with federal government departments/agencies, private companies, industry associations and Indigenous organizations to advance their goals and achieve their objectives in a number of impact areas – including conservation and nature. She is most known for leveraging her natural ability to cultivate strong relationships and her convening and facilitation skills to ensure space is created for people to feel heard.

In addition to her work as a consultant, Courtney is an owner-operator of a commercial lobster license in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia and brings over a decade of seasonal experience. It is in this experience that Courtney has come to develop a deep appreciation for the need to balance ecological outcomes with economic, social and cultural outcomes, to ensure today’s generation and future generations have equitable access to nature’s benefits.

Courtney holds a Master of Science in Environmental Sustainability from University of Ottawa’s Institute of the Environment as well as a Bachelor of Social Science in International Development and Globalization from University of Ottawa and a Bachelor of Arts in English from Saint Francis Xavier University.
