The Second Vice-President of the Saskatchewan Archaeological Society is Riel Cloutier.
For the past 7 years, Riel has worked as an archaeological resource specialist at the Saskatchewan Power Corporation.
His role there is to ensure new electrical projects being built in Saskatchewan are evaluated for their potential impact to archaeological sites and that heritage resource impact assessments are conducted as appropriate.
Prior to working for SaskPower, he worked for many years as an archaeological consultant in northern Alberta. He obtained his master’s degree at the University of Saskatchewan in 2004 and his Bachelor of Arts at the University of Winnipeg in 1999. Over the course of his career, he has worked as an archaeologist in all three prairie provinces. One of his current side projects is working with the treasure trove of artifacts and documentation gathered from the Regina Archaeological Society excavations at the Stoney Beach site in the 1950s and 60s with an intention of creating some kind of publishable article for the SAS. He looks forward to working with the SAS board.
