Director of Children and Families
My name is Shannon Olynyk. I am White Shawl Woman. I am Metis, French and Ukrainian originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba. There I was a member of the Manitoba Metis Federation until moving to beautiful Chilliwack, BC in 2017. After transitioning here I became a proud member of MNBC and the Chilliwack Metis Association. Since moving I also began my career with the Correctional Service of Canada and had two high spirited boys (no longer babies lol). I am honoured to be a member of the board and hope to contribute to the wellness of our children, families and community as a whole.
Maarsii, Miigwetch, Merci, Thank you!
I am the Woman's Representative for the Chilliwack Metis Association. I have been married for 27 years, to a retired Air Force member.
I was born and raised in Northern Alberta and we moved to Chilliwack when Rick retired.
I'm a mother of two grown children. My daughter lives here in Chilliwack with her daughter. My son and his wife live in Strathmore, Alberta with their son and daughter.
I do after school care for special needs kids that are in foster care.
My hobbies are doing crafts, cooking and baking for my family and friends.
