Dr. Deborah Saucier, the first Indigenous female president of MacEwan University, brings a vision for growing a new university and ensuring its role in transforming downtown Edmonton. 

Since moving to Edmonton in July, Deborah and her family have fallen in love with Edmonton, a city she calls “a hidden gem.”

Her wide-ranging goals include meeting the calls to action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission to recruiting and retaining top-notch staff, faculty and students  to enhance Edmonton’s economic vitality.

Dr. Saucier is an accomplished academic and successful university administrator. Before coming to MacEwan, she spent six years at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology in Oshawa, Ontario, as provost and vice-president, academic and also as the former dean of science.  

Prior to 2011, Deborah was the chair of the Department of Neuroscience at the University of Lethbridge and a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in behavioural neuroscience, with a specialty in spatial cognition. 

Deborah was born in Saskatoon, where she is a member of the Central Urban Metis Federation Incorporated. She is deeply committed to diversity, equity and inclusion and to the power of education to transform lives.  Deborah is married to curator and contemporary artist Chai Duncan. They have a nine-year-old daughter who is the light of their lives.

    Famous 5 Foundation - Edmonton Committee

    The Enbridge Famous 5 Speaker Series profiles extraordinarily successful women. Our speakers talk candidly about their careers, and the passion, vision and determination that drive them. They discuss our place in our society and the ethical responsibilities and consequences of our actions.  In relating their lives, you will hear about challenges as well as triumphs; humorous incidents and stories of loss; humbling moments of reflection and inspiring calls to action.  The Famous 5 Foundation is proud to partner with Enbridge Pipelines Inc. to present the Enbridge Famous 5 Speaker Series featuring dynamic and engaging women.

    It's the story of five ordinary women, born in the mid-nineteenth century, who joined the trek west with their families to frontier Canada. Each had a history of advocacy on behalf of women and children. All were prominent suffragists. When they arrived in Alberta, each had already had significant victories in her own particular areas of activism.

    They arrived on fertile soil where grassroots reform movements flourished. The women of the frontier who had arrived before them had contributed their own labour to building homesteads alongside their husbands. The Famous Five extended this pioneer spirit, taking female influence further, into a larger sphere of community and politics.

    In the face of prejudice and opposition, they built alliances with other women’s organizations and brilliantly communicated their vision for a society where women could participate in public service equally with men. They refused to take no for an answer—even when turned down by the Supreme Court of Canada.
