FOR SECOND VICE-PRESIDENT

Corey Klimchuk
B.Tech., C.E.T.

" We are at a time in Alberta when many professional organizations, not just ASET, are looking for legislative changes. This is an opportunity to further recognize the decades
of growth and professionalism technologists have brought
to Alberta's workforce and economy, " Corey says.
Starting his career as a technologist in 2009, Corey Klimchuk enrolled at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT). After completing the Geological Technology program with a Geo-Environmental specialization, he went on
to complete NAIT's Bachelor of Technology in Technology
Management program.
Corey started working as a hydrogeological technologist at
a groundwater consulting firm in 2012 before joining Pinchin
Ltd. (Pinchin) in 2014. Pinchin is a national environmental,
health and safety, and building science consulting firm that
stands as a leader in many disciplines across Canada. Since
then, he has grown from a successful technologist, project
manager and business development manager to his current
position as Senior Client Manager at Pinchin.
Appointed to the Alberta Safety Codes Council (SCC), Building
Sub-Council in 2018, representing the Building Owners and
Managers Association, Corey is currently the vice-chair north
and acts as liaison to the fire and barrier free sub-councils.
" Volunteering with both the SCC and ASET Council, and
seeing the positive effect even a single voice can have, has
helped inspire me to join ASET's executive, as I want to help
further build the organization and strengthen its recognition
in industry, " Corey says.
Corey is completing his term as an ASET Councillor, and
during the last two years has been involved in several ASET
committees, being the chair of both the audit committee
and governance committee, as well as a participant in the
strategic committee in 2020.
When approached about running for ASET executive, Corey realized that his skills, drive and determination could be
valuable to the organization's future.

" It is time that the professional contributions of all types
of technologists are adequately recognized in legislation,
and that all technologists have available the right to work
independently as professionals in their respective fields, "
he says.
" I believe that science and engineering technologists are
an essential component in Alberta's, and Canada's, workforce, and need to be strongly supported by legislation,
other professional organizations and ASET itself. "
Corey is a strong advocate for lifelong learning, diversity
and inclusivity. He'd like ASET to continue building on the
strategic framework that's been implemented in the last
two years. He'd also like to focus on a growth strategy that
is inclusive and diverse, which he believes is necessary for
a strong and healthy professional workforce in Alberta and
the future growth of ASET itself.
Corey has continued to support NAIT outside of his education and has been a member of the NAIT Geological
Technology Advisory Committee since 2017, supporting
the program through its Technology Accreditation Canada
certification assessment in 2018.
Working with many professionals who have come to Canada for a better life, Corey has seen firsthand the challenges these professionals can face when entering Canada's
workforce.
" It can be difficult to get recognition for one's credentials
and education from outside of Canada, " states Corey. " However, I believe that there is a way to be inclusive and welcoming while also maintaining a high standard for competency and ability for science and technology professionals. "
