Calvin Waquan

Advisory Council

Calvin Waquan is a proud member of the Mikisew Cree people. Walking in two worlds, Calvin has braided western and traditional teachings to benefit the community of Fort Chipewyan, Alberta and the Athabasca region. He started as a Community Liaison/substitute teacher at Athabasca Delta Community School in Fort Chip, that lead him to operating a local store and to now an elected Councillor of the Mikisew Cree First Nation. His role has led him to venture on many legacy projects with being lead on Mikisew Housing and a Director of Mikisew Group of Companies. Calvin hopes to work towards energy sovereignty as a community and to live in equilibrium with economics and environment moving into a climate friendly future.
