Director of Consultation
I am passionate about the well-being of Metis people, particularly as it relates to consultation by government and industry. Since 2005, I have been working closely with Metis communities across western Canada, ensuring that they not only have a voice in regulatory processes, but that the research and consultation and related activities that are undertaken continue to benefit the community in the long-term.
Careful, credible, community-based research is the only way to change the processes that continue to marginalize Metis people. As DIrector of Consultation, I have, and will continue to work to improve the well-being of our people.
I am particularly proud of www.myvoyageur.ca, a project that we designed and built in partnership with the Government of Canada to help ensure that Metis you (and other Metis people) know more about the resources that can help them in the communities in which they live, or to which they are moving. I encourage each and every member of the BC Metis Federation to engage in the different surveys that are released throughout each year. For those people who suspect that they are NOT being properly consulted by industry regarding developments in their areas, please don’t hesitate to contact the office. I am here to support you.

I qualified as a Chartered Accountant in England in 1966. Following some post-qualifying experience I joined the UK business forms company of Lamson Industries – later to be taken over by the worlds largest printer of business forms, Toronto based Moore Corporation, with subsidiaries in the US and in all the major international countries of the world.
Working up the corporate ladder in the UK as the Chief Accountant of an Engineering subsidiary in the group, to the Deputy Controller of the European Division, I was transferred to the Toronto Head Office as Finance Director of the International Division. In due course the International HO was transferred to Lausanne, Switzerland. Unfortunately, the advent of the paperless office caused the demise of Moore Corporation and I was made redundant after some 25 years with the corporation.
For some 5 years thereafter I owned a small printing company in Kent, England, before selling it and returning to Canada in 1998. I worked as the VP Finance for a hi-tech electronic bingo manufacturer here in Vancouver for 4 years. For the next 5 years I managed the financial affairs of a logging company, the multiple property investments and the financial investments of a private wealthy family in West Vancouver.
Currently, I have a number of private clients for whom I provide varying levels of financial advice and book-keeping.
