Erin Robertson started working at KNC as the Land’s Project Officer, Qukin ʔamakʔis (Elk Valley), earlier this year. Erin Robertson was born in Ottawa but raised in Saskatoon and completed a B.Sc. in Land Use and Environmental Studies in 2003 and defended her M.Sc. in Toxicology in 2006 at the University of Saskatchewan. She started her career at a uranium mining company as an Environmental Professional with a focus on Management Systems, Environmental Assessments and ecological and human health risk assessments.

Six years later, Erin took a job with a potash producer to manage the environmental portfolio of the construction of the first green field potash mine in Saskatchewan over 40 years. After 12 years in the mining industry, Erin was ready for a change and a job that was more aligned with her core values.

As the Lands Project Officer, Erin Robertson leads the review minor and major Teck Coal applications and supports related stewardship initiatives in Qukin ʔamakʔis.

She enjoys camping, hiking/walking and traveling to places near and far. Erin will be joined by her spouse Dennis later this year and they both look forward to exploring Ktunaxa ʔamakʔis and enjoying all the world-class activities and beautiful scenery it has to offer.
