Scott Meunier, Instructional Designer
My entire life is shaped by the oilpatch. The oil and gas industry has fed, clothed, educated and employed me throughout my childhood and career.
My first memories include sleepy mornings going with my Dad to his job as a battery operator. My first paying job included long hours swamping on a vacuum truck serving the rigs around our small town. And now, as a father myself, my biggest challenge is ensuring that my children also have sustainable ways to make a living for themselves.
Witnessing the highs and lows associated with the volatility of the oil and gas sector has also shaped me. I am committed to doing what I can to support workers transitioning to careers in climate solutions so there are multiple ways for people to make a living producing energy both now and for generations to come.

It falls to all of us to continue the work of healing and reconciliation in our communities and our organizations. Our relationship with the land and the people who live here shapes who we are. It is in the spirit of reconciliation and honouring the past that we recognize treaties and agreements wherever they are and wherever we work.
We also acknowledge all peoples who live, work, and play on this land, and who honour and celebrate this territory.
As individuals and teams we may make mistakes along the way, but we are dedicated to growth, openness, compassion, and forgiveness. These principles in our work are essential to building successful and healthy relationships with individuals, communities, organizations, and governments.
We look forward to building a path to lead us to a better relationship with Indigenous nations and the environment around us based on peace, friendship, and respect.
