Stephanie Clark
Elected 2018

Stephanie Clark

Recreation Services Manager,
City of Iqaluit

Involved in the Students Commission network since the late 1990s in Saskatoon, Stephanie joined the SC family out in Toronto in the carefree days of the early 2000s. Here she found support for her involvement in projects that sharpened her engagement skills and crossed her path with countless young people that fundamentally shaped the way she looks at youth, the community and life. Stephanie stepped away from The Students Commission for a few years to try her hand at managing housing programs for youth. After five years of that eventually Stephanie found her way to Iqaluit where she currently oversees community programs for the Recreation Department with the City.

Believes in: ghosts, the healing power of travel and the wisdom of young people.
Fond of: her husband Todd, pit bulls, comma splices and awkward, accidental handholding.
