Who we are

People at the Parkland Institute include our membership, our board of directors, our volunteers and our staff.


Parkland Institute would not exist without our individual and organizational members. Our programming and research levels are both dependent upon (and limited by) the support of our membership. Our current activity levels rely upon a base of approximately 800 individual and organizational members. Read about membership benefits »

Board of Directors

Our board strives for balanced representation in many areas. Half of Parkland’s board members are academic. They represent the Universities of Alberta, Calgary, Lethbridge, and Athabasca, and also the other colleges of Alberta. The other half of the board include representatives from the community, unions, professional associations, private sector and community organizations. The board also attempts to maintain gender balance and regional representation throughout Alberta. See the Board of Directors list »


The Parkland Institute relies upon volunteers to accomplish much of what we do. Volunteers play extremely important roles in such areas as event planning, research promotion, membership and fundraising drives, and school outreach. Learn more about volunteering at Parkland »


The small staff and Director of the Parkland Institute are housed at the University of Alberta. Staffing duties include membership support and fundraising, research and programming coordination. We also employ contract researchers and other specialists as required. Find contacts at the Parkland Institute »
