Speaker Bio
Hope Regimbald is a proud and active citizen of the Woodland Cree First Nation. She specializes in community engagement, communications, and influencing organizational inclusion of Indigenous world view. Her career in energy development has focused on major projects in Canada where she has supported consultation, agreement implementation, building strategic partnerships and incorporating community needs into project strategy.

Hope has engaged with First Nations nationally as manager of the National Day of Healing and reconciliation and the National Addictions Awareness Week, supported award winning film productions with Bearpaw Media, and has worked in some of Canada’s largest major projects, including her current role as Indigenous Relations Advisor with LNG Canada in Kitimat, BC.

Hope honors her mixed ancestry, walking in two worlds and advancing reconciliation into action. She is committed to economic reconciliation and works toward building healthy, independent, sustainable Indigenous communities through connection to opportunities and sustainable economic development.

An active volunteer in her community, Hope has supported efforts by the Woodland Cree Elders to become a formal committee, where they now deliver an annual cultural and mental health camp for families. She assisted the Peace River Aboriginal Interagency Committee in building the local script for their regional Blanket Exercise and drafted the Reconciliation Strategy adopted by her hometown of Peace River, which recently resulted in the community’s permanent acknowledgment of Treaty history, and the raising of Indigenous flags in the town centre.

Hope is an alumnus of the Faculty of Native Studies at the University of Alberta and is a graduate of the Indigenous Women in Community Leadership Program with COADY Institute at St. Francis Xavier University. She has also completed courses in Indigenous Leadership at the Banff Centre.
