Barry Wilson, Systems Ecologist, CE Analytic

About Your Keynote: Barry is a Systems Ecologist, an insightful and powerful Event Speaker, and a Cumulative Effects Specialist with particular expertise in holistic land use planning. Drawing upon over 30 years experience in the Indigenous, industrial, government, and consulting sectors, Barry uses systems dynamics understanding to balance environmental, economic and social priorities.

Barry’s relentless drive to unlock prosperity while caring for the earth that sustains us is helping governments, not-for-profits and individuals create the future they want.

Barry helps his clients better understand and manage the cumulative effects of land use, economic development, wildfire, avalanches, floods and climate change.  He is a leader in building, using and teaching leading edge spatial and temporal simulation modelling in a scenario planning framework.

While his geographic focus has been in British Columbia and Alberta Canada, his projects have taken him north to the Sahtu Region of the NWT, east to Ontario and Saskatchewan, and south to California. Living and working in Secwepemcúl’ecw, Barry has been privileged to work closely with several Secwépemc communities on ground-breaking cumulative effects assessment for major Environmental Assessments including the Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion, the proposed KGHM Ajax gold mine, and the twinning of the Trans Canada Highway.
