Leadership Council

Patrick Twinn

Director, Indigenous Relations
ATB Financial

Meet Patrick:

I am a proud citizen of the Sawridge First Nation (SFN) located near Slave Lake, Alberta (Treaty 8 territory). I am passionate about my ancestral Nehiyaw (Cree) culture, language and history; and hope to pass along these values to the next generation of First Nations youth. My late father – Chief Walter Patrick Twinn, an Indian Residential School survivor –  emphasized the importance Nehiyaw values would play in addressing the historic traumas Indigenous Peoples have faced. I am proud to continue this legacy through my work, life and responsibilities as a Nehiyaw napew of the Treaty 8 Nations.

I am a passionate, strategic leader who drives teams and organizations that are seeking to advance Indigenous inclusion & reconciliation. My approach to leadership is through influencing others and convincing them to act in a meaningful way through humility, respect, integrity, truth and wisdom. I am passionate about supporting Indigenous nations with their socio-economic self-determination goals by using my power and influence to stimulate change in the corporate sector. I seek to inspire others to move, and act with an eye towards the outcome. 

Outside the work environment, I am a husband, father, brother, son, uncle, cousin and friend. My personal hobbies result in me spending time on the golf course, playing hockey, exercising and spending time with those that fill my cup.
