Andy McKinnon, Canvass Field Manager

Andy joined TEA’s canvass team after moving to Toronto in 2015. He was eager to engage in grassroots politics in his new city, which made working with the canvass team a great fit.

In 2014 Andy received his Master’s Degree in International Studies from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, BC. Prior to that he completed a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in International Relations and Development Studies at University of Windsor.

Researching global social movements instilled in him a strong belief in the importance of local campaigning on environmental issues. Canvassing with TEA allows him to engage with Torontonians and learn about politics at the municipal level.

Prior to joining TEA, Andy spent six years as a reservist in the Royal Canadian Navy, which gave him the opportunity to explore Canada’s beautiful Pacific and Atlantic coasts.
