"What should students be learning in school to go and be effective geologists or engineers? If you’re going to be working in the north you have to understand aboriginal issues."
Glenn has had a long career in the exploration and mining industry. His career has varied from working for multinational corporations to owning and operating his own exploration contracting company to his present role in working with a dedicated team in the development of a mining project in Ontario’s “Ring of Fire”.
Glenn is a member of the Missanabie Cree First Nation located in North Eastern Ontario and served as Chief for three consecutive, three-year terms. He serves on many not-for-profit organizations in Canada and internationally and advises foreign governments on policies related to indigenous people and resource development. In 2013 Glenn was recognized with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal for his many years of volunteerism.
Currently, Glenn is Vice President, Aboriginal Affairs, for Noront Resources and is a board member of a publically traded diamond exploration company. He is the immediate past president of the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada, the first Aboriginal person to hold that position.
