Hello! My name is Karly Wilson and I am a Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Infinite Reach Facilitator for Carleton University. I am in my fourth year of a Bachelor of Science in Food Science and Nutrition with a minor in Biology. I have also obtained a college diploma in Pre-Health Sciences/General Arts and Science from Algonquin College. Coming from a small town in southern Manitoba, I understand how overwhelming and challenging it is to be on your own in a big city and outside of your comfort zone. I am the second oldest of six kids and the first to attend university in my family. This school year, I have a craving to extend my knowledge and understanding of the Métis culture and I hope you will join me on the journey. I am very excited to meet other Métis students here at Carleton University! If you need any help connecting with campus services or would like to chat, feel free to contact me at karly_wilson112@hotmail.com.

I am also currently working part-time in Human Resources at the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA). I work closely with CFIA’s Indigenous Network—the National Indigenous Advisory Circle, to assist with Indigenous employment initiatives including career development programs, employment issues, Indigenous cultural awareness and Indigenous student recruitment. If you are interested or know of other Indigenous students or new graduates who are seeking a career at the Canadian Food Inspection Agency or would like more information about potential employment opportunities, please do not hesitate to contact me at Karly.Wilson@inspection.gc.ca.
