Meet Jenica

Bringing people together

Jenica Atwin is passionate about people. Having spent her career at the intersection of youth, education, and First Nations communities, she is an advocate for and within the education system around youth mental health, recreation, and culturally responsive education.

Jenica grew up in and around Oromocto and Fredericton. She completed her Master’s in Education at UNB, while working full time at Oromocto High School. It was at this time that she and her husband had their two boys.

Jenica ran in New Maryland-Sunbury for the Green Party of New Brunswick in 2018, doubling the Green popular vote from the election before. She is drawn to federal politics now as a means of addressing some of the major issues we face, issues like: climate change, rampant poverty, mental illness and addictions, and the need for reconciliation with First Nations.

“As a mother and educator, I know today’s decisions have a lasting impact on the future our children inherit. This election, we have an opportunity to choose better." Jenica Atwin
