About

After making the move to Canmore 9 summers ago from Ontario, I have not looked back! I have worked various roles throughout the years finding myself in weddings working as a Sales and Wedding Coordinator. While I'm not working you can find me camping, golfing or on a ski hill! I am looking forward to utilizing my knowledge of the Bow Valley and events towards CYAN!

About

Hi, I’m Maren, the builder of this website and CYAN's most recent member at large! My boyfriend and I moved here in July 2020 and my beginnings in this town were definitely lonely. After many months of lockdowns and working remotely, getting involved with CYAN allowed me to form friendships and helped me find a greater sense of purpose in this community. Find me exploring all of Canmore’s delicious food options or catch me hiking, biking, skiing, running, climbing and netflixing!

About

I am an Australian/Canadian lawyer that moved to the valley four years ago. Outside of work, I enjoy mountain biking, kiteboarding, creating music and getting competitive at Catan. I am passionate about human rights and want to help ensure that young adults receive a “fair go” in the community. I look forward to connecting with more people.

About

After growing up in Montreal and studying Leisure & Recreation in University, I found myself on a plane to the West Coast Mountains less than 1 week after graduation. I then made the move to Canmore in November 2020 and have absolutely loved learning about this community. I love spending all my free time outdoors, just trying to decide on which activity to do next! I also always enjoy a post outdoor-adventure beer at one of our awesome local breweries.

I have been living in Canmore since May 2022. I have fallen in love with this place immediately because i am an outdoorsy person and Canmore can provide all I have been long desiring. Other than the beauty of the place, I also love the kindness of the people here. CYAN is an excellent platform that allows me to get connected with the local community.

I’ve lived most of my whole life in the valley, with a stint in Calgary for college and to start my career then I got the opportunity to work from home and jetted back. Cities may be more livable but can be Busy and hard to find your place so upon coming back and jumping into some of Canmore’s only Young adult groups Game nights and finally connecting I was sticking around.
