Giles Shearing joins our Columbia Region board

Giles Shearing has been selected as the newest public representative on our Columbia Region board. He lives in Revelstoke and his work and personal interests have taken him throughout our Columbia Region.

Giles established Shearing Consultants Ltd. in 2012, providing environmental and project management support to First Nations, industry, and government across the province. Previously, he worked for BC Hydro and Envirowest.

He has a degree in environmental management from Royal Roads University and a master’s in environmental science from the University of British Columbia Okanagan, with a specialization in the environmental impacts of hydroelectric dams related to sediment transport dynamics, fluvial geomorphology, and fisheries science.

His interests include bird watching with his two children, going on mountain bike expeditions with his wife and father—including to locations such as Nepal, Peru, and Moab—skiing, helping to manage Revelstoke Search and Rescue, Wim Hof Method, and playing his cello. He and his family have lived in Revelstoke since 2008.
