Maurice Roy

"I am a resident of Rustico PEI and of Acadian ancestry with connections to the Doucet house and family. I have worked at the PEI National Park since 1991 and am the coordinator of educational programs there. I have been on the Board since 2002. I have a keen interest in early architecture and have been buying and restoring early Island homes for a number of years. I am also an avid antique collector with a particular interest in early Acadian and Mi’kmaq Cultural material."
