Peter Hansen


Peter was born in Fort Chipewyan, Alberta, and is most proud of his Métis Heritage. He moved with his family in the late 1950s to (Waterways) Fort McMurray and attended Peter Pond High School. He and his wife, Judy, have been married for 44 years, and together they raised two children.

Peter retired from Syncrude in June 2019 after 31 years of service. He owns and operates a trapline in the Birch Mountains. Peter has volunteered in many capacities, including the Yukon Quest which is a 1,000-mile dog team race from Whitehorse to Fairbanks, Alaska. He represents the McMurray Métis with his involvement in many areas including the development of the future Cultural Center.

He also sits on the board of the Infinity Métis Corporation. Peter looks forward to achieving future goals and objectives with McMurray Métis.
