Corey Kinsella

Technical Advisor, Physical Sciences and Traditional Lands

from Curve Lake First Nation

graduate of the Earth Resources Technician program from Fleming College

Spirit Statement

I am proud to call Curve Lake First Nation home, and come from a line of proud anishinaabeg kwewag. Being brought up in the village has provided me the true meaning of ‘community’ and the values associated with it.

Since a young boy I have always been fascinated with how the earth works, from geologic formations, to the directions in which rivers flow. This curiosity I believe lead me to pursue education and ultimately a career in earth sciences. The importance of taking care of mother earth was instilled in us indigenous children at an early age, and I continue to incorporate that into my career by participating in programs that offset or improve habitat for flora and fauna in close proximity to resource activities.

I am excited to join the CIPS team and display my passion for the environment in my work..
