Paul Wilson, Climate Change Coordinator
Life after King's
Since completing my program at King's, I has been hard at work in the world of policy and program development.
"I truly see my King's Philosophy degree as the foundation of what has carried me forward into all of these incredible opportunities."
Immediately after graduating, I was fortunate enough to accept a role with Statistics Canada, completing enumeration on First Nations Reserves and in remote specialized municipalities. I really found my place here and before long became responsible for an enumeration team of my own in northwestern Alberta.
A short time later, I was honoured to be accepted into the Alberta government's Indigenous Internship Program, a fantastic approach to policy skill development for those who focus their career efforts towards improving the status of Indigenous Peoples in the province. I have also spent time working for the Alberta Ministries of Environment and Parks and Indigenous Relations, where I championed innovative approaches to tracking and reporting, have served as an active participant in policy development and implementation, and more.
I now work as the Regional Climate Change Coordinator for the Assembly of First Nations in Alberta, and serve as on the board of the Animal Rescue Transfer Society - an agency specializing in older animal adoption. I truly see my King's Philosophy degree as the foundation of what has carried me forward into all of these incredible opportunities.
