Nathalie Chalifour, PhD
Nathalie Chalifour is an Associate Professor with the Centre for Environmental Law and Global Sustainability at the Faculty of Law, University of Ottawa. She is cross-appointed to the Institute of the Environment where she teaches in an interdisciplinary Masters of Environmental Sustainability. Nathalie was elected to the Royal Society of Canada’s College of New Scholars in 2018. Nathalie’s research lies at the intersection of environment law, economics and social justice, with a focus on climate change. Her most recent articles focus on the constitutionality of climate policies, specifically the division of powers and Charter rights. Nathalie is currently leading a SSHRC-funded project on Environmental Justice in Canadian Law and Policy. She is the co-editor of three international books, including “Energy, Governance and Sustainability” (Edward Elgar, 2016), and a fourth collection on Food Law in Canada (Carswell 2019).
Nathalie is actively engaged in the development of Canadian law and policy. She recently served as pro-bono co-counsel to Canada’s Ecofiscal Commission before the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal, and the United Chiefs and Council of the Mnidoo Mnising before the Ontario Court of Appeal (with Westaway Law), in the constitutional challenges to the federal carbon price. From 2011-2015, she was Associate Director at the Institute of the Environment where she led the development, and served as inaugural director, of the interdisciplinary Masters of Environmental Sustainability. Prior to her academic career, Nathalie was senior advisor to the President of the National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy, Policy Advisor to the World Wildlife Fund, and established TRAFFIC Canada (an NGO that focuses on wildlife trade). She was also an adjunct professor at Widener University and taught at the University of Nairobi, Kenya. She obtained her Doctorate of Law at Stanford University, and holds a Master in Juridical Sciences which she obtained as a Stanford Fellow and Fulbright Scholar.
