Doug Mitchell represents persons with disabilities on the Commission Board of Directors.
Doug’s background in the skilled trades and an active interest in volunteerism led to his role on the SATCC Board of Directors.
Doug became a Journeyperson Bricklayer over 30 years ago, and was soon grandfathered into the carpenter trade. His involvement in the skilled trades began when he was 20 years old, helping build the penitentiary in Saskatoon and the University Hospital addition. He was hired as a technical officer with Energy Mines and Resources, and became a certified property manager for Public Works Canada.
A spinal cord injury outside of work led Doug to an early retirement 15 years ago, but he has been active on the many volunteer boards since then.
Doug serves on the Board of Directors’ Inclusion and Program Innovation Committee.
