CE Analytic Ltd.
Barry J. Wilson is a systems ecologist, speaker, and trainer, specializing in holistic cumulative effects assessment. He works closely with Indigenous Nations & communities, governments, leaders and changemakers on cumulative effects programs and frameworks supporting policy and decision-making.
Barry starts with the understanding that everything is connected and seeks to apply two ways of knowing – Indigenous Knowledge and western contemporary science. He believes that together these ways of knowing hold the answers to unlock prosperity by caring for the Earth that sustains us.
Barry is also an active volunteer appointed to the Canadian Indigenous Center for Cumulative Effects Technical Advisory Committee, serving as President and co-founder of the non-profit BC Tomorrow helping youth explore sustainability in their watershed, and he is Co-chair and charter member of the Rotary Club of the Rivers focused on helping people and communities around the world be in wise relationship with the environment and our economies.
Barry and his wife and business partner Karen live in Salmon Arm, BC, Canada, which is located in Secwepemcúl’ecw, the traditional and unceded territory of the Secwepemc Nation.
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.
Through their consulting agency CE Analytic, Barry and his wife and business partner Karen Wilson will once again promote the advancement of the Cumulative Effects discipline by hosting the 4th annual 2-day CFX Conference the fall of 2022 www.cfxconference.com
