Mike Simpson

Senior Regional Manager, Thompson

staff_msimpson.jpgMike Simpson facilitates and supports several multi-party initiatives to address complex environmental and natural resource management issues. The initiatives involve all orders of government, including First Nations, the private sector and civil society, and the focus is often on grassroots, local or regional concerns. The Council is invited into the initiative as an impartial party to help different interests, explore the issues and work on collaborative solutions.

Some examples of Mike's work includes facilitating a dialogue between the Tsilhqot'in and Province of BC since 2008, supporting the Williams Lake and Area Interface Fire Plan secretariat, supporting the development of the Cariboo-Chilcotin Regional Agriculture/Wildlife Committee, and leading the development of a climate change adaptation strategy for the Cariboo Regional District. He has also facilitated a series of dialogues on hydrological issues in the Nicola watershed and is helping to support the Thompson-Nicola Regional District and City of Merritt in a planning process for the future of Nicola Lake.  Mike is leading the Council's management and delivery of SLIPP in 2013.

Mike received a Master of Arts in conflict resolution at Royal Roads University in 2004, and has been a professional forester in BC since 1996.

About the Fraser Basin Council

The Fraser Basin Council (FBC) is a charitable non-profit organization that brings people together to advance sustainability in the Fraser River Basin and throughout BC. Established in 1997, FBC is a collaboration of four orders of government (federal, provincial, local and First Nations) along with those from the private sector and civil society. We work with people in multiple sectors, helping them find collaborative solutions to today’s issues through a commitment to the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainability. Our focus is on healthy water and watersheds, action on climate change and air quality and strong, resilient communities and regions.
