Robin Campbell, former Alberta Finance Minister and MLA for West-Yellowhead, will discuss his current position as President of the Coal Association of Canada and issues facing the coal industry.

As a 4th generation coal miner who has spent over 30 years in the industry, Robin Campbell understands the issues facing coal from the inside out. Starting his mining career in 1973, and transitioning specifically into coal in 1979, he has held positions ranging from loader operator to various executive postings. As former treasurer and President of the United Mine Workers of America Local 1656, Robin has local perspective and understanding of the challenges miners and their families are facing during this economic downturn. He also served as a representative of the International Union of the UMWA and gained global perspective of the industry.

Like most Albertans, Robin has a strong passion for the outdoors and takes pride in the environmental record of Alberta’s coal mining industry. He has been a registered fishing guide in the Jasper and Hinton area for over 30 years and places tremendous value in the protection of our natural landscapes, rivers and lakes.

Robin also served as MLA for West-Yellowhead in the Alberta Legislature from 2008 to 2015. He was appointed to Cabinet as the Government Whip in 2010 and then served as Minister of Aboriginal Relations, Minister of the Environment and most recently as Minister of Finance and Treasury Board until May 2015. His experience as a public servant and insight into the workings of government translate well into his role at the Coal Association of Canada.

Robin accepted the role as President of the Coal Association of Canada in November, 2015 and is leveraging his decades of experience to help preserve jobs and ensure the coal industry remains an important part of our economy.
