Debbie van der Wal


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!

Women's Representative


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.
