Biographical history

Greg Doran is a descendant of Irish settlers who emigrated to Peterborough with Peter Robinson in 1825. He was born near the end of the 1960s, the youngest of six children. Greg attended St. Alphonsus Elementary School from 1975-1983, the same school each of his siblings attended. When he graduated, he attended St. Peter’s High School from 1983-1988, when it was located on Reid Street. He graduated from his Ontario Academic Credit (OAC) year (formerly Grade 13), and moved on to Trent University. Between the years of 1988-1992, he completed a joint major, receiving his Honours Degree in Environmental & Resource Studies and Political Studies. It is notable that each of Greg’s siblings also attended Trent, and earned a degree there. Greg worked for the Township of Cavan and NHB Industries in Peterborough, before moving to eastern Canada where he began working as an Environment, Health and Safety Coordinator with an international pipe manufacturing company in 2003. This position provided him with the opportunity to become a certified Canadian Registered Safety Professional in 2007. Greg has continued working in this field with various companies on the eastern coast of Canada.
