Justin Fuss is a 3rd generation local and active resident of the Maskwacis–Wetaskiwin area, having grown up on Coal Lake on a family property that his grandfather began farming in the mid-20th century. He is a journeyman and a red seal electrician that has spent the last 5 years of his career as a NAIT Electrical Instructor specializing in pre-trade courses that he teaches to Indigenous residents across Alberta. When he is not actively teaching or working his trade, he works as a tree planter in the summer, and has also worked as an Educational Facilitator for the nonprofit Inclusion Alberta.
He has been blessed to work alongside Indigenous cultures outside of Canada connecting to an ancient heritage and working as a cultural bridge builder connecting westerners to stories and teachings that we once were all connected to as inheritors of our profoundly deep cultural ancestry.
Recently he has begun reaching out to nonprofits and mental health awareness conferences as a speaker on the topic of Cultivating Empowerment.
Justin is honoured to be a candidate for the Maskwacis–Wetaskiwin division and looks forward to being a representative for communities he respects and cares for that he has spent his life of 30 years getting to know and love.
