Tahltan Nation Development Corporation (TNDC) is delighted to announce that Freda Campbell has joined the organization in the newly-created Training & Development Officer/HR Generalist position. Freda is a highly accomplished and recognized Indigenous leadership trailblazer. For over 25 years, Freda has worked in the mining sector with industry and First Nations, dedicated to innovating Indigenous community engagement, empowering the Indigenous workforce, and mentoring the next generation of Indigenous leaders.

In this strategic role, Freda will provide senior level coordination and support in the planning and delivery of human resources activities, including staff development, engagement and recruitment. Within this scope, she will lead development and execution of processes to enhance the complete employee lifecycle and be responsible for helping grow employee capacity by working with TNDC leadership to identify training gaps to develop and implement training plans. In addition, Freda will develop a workplan to connect with Tahltan youth in the community and provide job coaching for opportunities within TNDC.

Freda joins TNDC from Skeena Resources, where she was Community Relations Director responsible for community engagement under the Eskay Creek Revitalization Project’s environmental assessment process. Prior to that, she was Director of Employment and Training for the Tahltan Central Government (TCG), where she developed the revolutionary OnTrack: Tahltan Essential Skills Database, instrumental in enabling Tahltans to access job opportunities in territory. In the years prior, she held human resource, employment and community liaison roles with AltaGas, Barrick Gold Corporation, Red Chris Development Company, TCG and Liard First Nation Development Corporation, as well as Dease Lake Program Coach for the BC Aboriginal Mine Training Association.

She holds an Executive MBA, Indigenous Business and Leadership from Simon Fraser University and Associate of Arts Diploma, Business Administration from Camosun College. In addition, Freda draws upon leadership and organization business management courses from Thompson Rivers University.

She is a member of the Tahltan Nation, Crow Clan, and Dekama Family, and calls Tahltan Territory home.  Freda’s commitment to the Tahltan Nation and her vision for the mining industry earned her the 2023 Indigenous Trailblazer Award from Women In Mining Canada.

“TNDC is thrilled to welcome Freda to take on this new strategic position, which is instrumental in our delivering on our commitment to developing the Tahltan talent we need and supporting TNDC’s growth for today and tomorrow.
