Norm Neil

A 23-year resident of Canmore, Norm has worn as many volunteer hats as are possible, including founder of the now-defunct Children’s Festival, coach for minor soccer, timer for competitive swimming, helper with the local gymnastics club, cross-country ski events and, since 1999, with the Canmore Folk Fest’s environmental team. In 2008 he spearheaded our Towards Zero Waste initiative and last year stepped out of that role and onto the board. He and his wife Jane have raised two daughters in Canmore whose lives were steeped in the culture of volunteerism. By day he’s the manager of Data Governance for the University of Calgary.
