Calgarians We Love: Heather Campbell

Heather Campbell can still recite the Brownie code: “I’m still a Brownie in my mind,” she laughs. “I do right by my people and my country, and I try to do good every day.”

Campbell holds the position of team lead, legal registry for TC Energy Corporation and spends her non-working hours volunteering. She’s a public commissioner on the Calgary Police Commission, a member of the advisory council for Western Engineering, a board member for Arts Commons, the People’s Warden for St. Stephen’s Anglican Church and co-chair of Alberta’s first-ever Anti-Racism Advisory Council, advising the Government of Alberta on how to take action to combat racism.

These extracurricular commitments keep her (very) busy, but Campbell says they’re a source of deep meaning in her life. “I am a Black woman with an engineering degree, I’ve trained in the arts since I was three years old, and I’m a woman of faith,” she says. “I do things that are fundamental to the core of who I am.”
