Elder in Residence

Mary Ann Spencer

 She:kon, I am Kaienkehaka from Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory. I have been working in Indigenous education for 12 years with knowledge and expertise in Indigenous Based Holistic Healing Approaches through Indigegogy.

I have 23 years of experience in the Social Work Field and enjoy the many different areas that my chosen profession finds me.  I received my Masters of Social Work, Aboriginal Field of Study through Wilfred Laurier Institution.

I have been working with different Institutions in the position as Elder for several years now.  This role has been deeply meaningful to me and has also been an amazing spiritual journey.  I see my role as Elder as a way to empower and liberate our Indigenous people from the impacts of colonization.

You can contact me by email at or by telephone at (613) 533-6000 ext.79097
