Don Morin

Don Morin, a proud member of the Enoch Cree Nation (ECN) who is currently serving his community in a few capacities; as Senior Manager for the Economic Development Department and as CEO of the River Cree Development Corporation. Don first experienced the business calling while playing Collegiate Hockey for the Georgian Grizzlies in Barrie Ontario. Unfortunately, injuries limited his hockey career forcing him to move back home to recuperate. Once home he decided to complete his education being awarded a Business Management Diploma from the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology. Don began his professional career as a Business Loans Manager with the Royal Bank of Canada. After two and a half years while gaining valuable experience, he chose to work for First Nation Communities as first, a lender with the Alberta Indian Investment Corporation (AIIC), then working his way through the ranks to the General Manager of the same company. Nearing thirteen years with the AIIC, Don was recruited by his home community to head up the Economic arm of the ECN. Having a love for his home community, Don agreed to work for the ECN and has been doing so for the past thirteen plus years. Not only does he run the two of the major economic arms of the ECN, his background in Finance has proven to be a valuable commodity to serve the community. Don has been a valuable team player for the ECN leading several Economic Initiatives as the community strives towards economic self-sufficiency!
