Angelene Giesbrecht

Public Services and Procurement Canada
Outreach Office

Angie is a First Nations women and grew up in Winnipeg Manitoba.  She holds a Degree in Microbiology from the University of Manitoba. 

Culturally, Angie follows the Anishinaabe ways of life even though her heritage also includes Inninew, and Métis.  Both parents were Residential School survivors and as a result Angie did not grow up with her culture.  Through the Indigenous student programming at University of Manitoba (UoM) ACCESS program, Angie not only obtained her 4 year Major but also started her journey on the Red Road.

During her finally years at UoM, Angie started her career at Agriculture and Agri-food Canada (AAFC).  She held various positions from Field Laborer to Research Assistant.  She worked in the fields of Genetics and Breeding, Entomology and Cereal Diseases.  After 17 years, Angie transitioned to a role within AAFC as Security, Health and Safety Officer.  From there, she applied her new office skills and was successful in another role as Indigenous Pathfinder Service Officer, also within AAFC.

About one year ago, Angie found another chance to spread her wings and so changed careers again. She transitioned to her current role as Outreach Officer within Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC).  Here Angie is encouraged to braid her Anishinaabe Cultural teachings with Western Science to create a safe place for all to learn about Indigenous Peoples culture and practices.  She is an active member of the Interdepartmental Indigenous STEM Cluster, founding member of the Nookomis Nibi Biijigozi Advisory Circle and actively involved with the Indigenous Employees Circle for PSPC.
