Hello O’Chiese First Nation Community,


I have been hired as the new O’Chiese Director of Operations and my name is Gary Crowe. My position will be the responsibility of managing the administration in addition I will be assisting Council, managers, staff and the community to achieve our goals. Communication is important to me so I look forward to working with all of you in a collaborative environment.


A little bit about me is that I was born and raised in Red Deer Alberta and am pleased to be back in Alberta with my family. I have a wife and two teenage sons and we enjoy spending time in the outdoors hiking and skiing.


My previous work experience includes working for various levels of government across Canada for 16 years. I have experience working with Indigenous Government on programs and policies affecting property rights, including Aboriginal rights and title, environment, public lands, pipelines, securities, corporations and land titles. I have also worked as the Executive Director of Tsilhgot’in Tribal Council in Williams Lake, British Columbia.


I am looking forward to working with your community and learning about all the great programs and projects that are underway.  I can be reached at the band office at 403-989-3943 or toll free 1-888-256-3884 or by email at gary.c@ocfn.ca.
