Peter Cardinal is from the Kikino Metis Settlement. Cardinal is an advocate for attending school to attain an education while encouraging First Nation communities to bring healing to their community through governance and economic development.

Peter Cardinal left his $170,000 a year job as a Power Engineer with Suncor in Fort Mac to pursue a career to assist Indigenous First Nations’ bid to become economically self-sufficient. His answer lies in food production and hemp companies powered by natural gas. Most First Nations own their own mineral rights. Peter Cardinal has a powerful message to First Nations: use natural gas to produce organic foods and hemp on reserves.

Peter Cardinal’s message is a key solution to allow First Nations the opportunity to become self-sufficient and profit from the need for Canadians to become less dependent on produce from the US; products like fruit, meat, hemp and vegetables.  Hemp according to Peter Cardinal has about 50,000 different uses. 

Peter is a committed member of his community, volunteering his skills to serve its economic, social, health and political needs. He helped revive Buffalo Days and its Métis triathlon that tests participants’ skills in canoeing, running and horseback riding. He also helped start the Wellness Committee to offer community-based programs in social, mental and emotional well-being.

He is a current board member with Community Futures Lac La Biche and AlbertaHUB, as well as former board member of the trust fund and health board of Metis Settlements General Council for all eight settlements.

In his role with Community Futures Lac La Biche, Peter particularly values his ability to provide business coaching and prepare the newest entrepreneurs for success. Peter sees the future of the North as driven by more than just resources.

The vast landscape and beauty of the North have great potential for tourism and agricultural growth. He sees the recent economic downturn as an opportunity to focus on improving oil and gas technologies and diversifying into other industries.
