Contact Jen:


Jen Heneberry is a Senior Associate with DPRA Canada.  She holds a B.Sc in Chemistry and an Honours B.Sc in Environmental Science from McMaster University and a Masters of Public Administration from Queen’s University.


Most recently, Jen worked for almost 12 years at the Ontario provincial government as an Indigenous relations focused senior advisor in three different lands and resource ministries.  In these roles, she worked to support improved Crown-Indigenous relations and support the incorporation of Indigenous perspectives and participation in a number of policy and program initiatives including renewable energy generation, development in the Ring of Fire, climate change, water quantity and environmental approvals and permissions. Prior to joining the Ontario government, Jen worked in various roles in the not-for-profit/charity/co-operative sectors and also volunteered in advisory and governance roles at three social financing organizations.  In both her government and not-for-profit related work, Jen supported a range of strategic planning, program development and evaluation, community engagement, and policy review and assessment work and has developed a strong understanding of how these Indigenous communities, not-for-profits and co-operatives intersect with government policy development and program delivery.


Jen is also co-author of a paper on the intersection of co-operatives in Ontario with government policy and co-author of a chapter in in Living Economics, edited by JJ. McMurtry about co-operatives and government working together.
