Margaret Low

Assistant Professor

School of Community and Regional Planning (SCARP)

Maggie was born and raised in Sudbury, Ontario, and is a status member of Wikwemikoong Unceded Territory. Maggie is a community engaged scholar who seeks to advance a better understanding of Indigenous sovereignty as it is expressed outside the Canadian courts, and with a focus on the implications of these expressions for the well-being of Indigenous communities. Maggie also seeks to showcase the strength and strategies of Indigenous Nations and communities as they assert authority over their territories and work towards a renewed relationship with non-Indigenous Canadians. Maggie’s doctoral research examined practices of Indigenous sovereignty expressed through strategic planning, more especially, the negotiation and implementation of reconciliation agreements between Heiltsuk Nation and the Province of British Columbia and the Government of Canada.

Maggie has been fortunate enough to work with and for First Nations in British Columbia, Manitoba and Ontario. Off campus, Maggie enjoys running, biking, camping, drinking good coffee and eating with friends and family.
