Annamarie (Morin) Demchuk is a member of the Enoch Cree Nation, located just outside the city of Edmonton, AB. She has a strong background in education and business and holds an MBA. Anna strongly believes in lifelong learning, having recently graduated from the Tulo Centre with a Certificate in First Nation Tax Administration. She was named class valedictorian by her fellow cohort members and was proud to walk hand-in-hand with her peers during the graduation ceremony. Anna is also currently enrolled in the Tulo Centre’s brand new Applied Lands Management certificate program and is on her third course out of the eight courses required to graduate from that certificate program.
Clearing the Path recently had the opportunity to sit down with Anna to learn more about her experience in the First Nation Taxation certificate program.

At that point, we began our journey to learn as much as we could to ensure proper development for our nation.
