Kim Haynes was elected Persons With Disabilities (PWD) Representative on the Prairie Region Council at the 2014 Prairie Region Convention.
She first became involved eight years ago when her Local asked her to assist with financial accounting. While she only intended to lend a hand temporarily, but she quickly became interested in learning more and getting involved further.
Since then, she has held various positions, including Shop Steward and Treasurer in her Local, and developed a strong belief that people have rights and need to be treated with dignity and respect.
Kim has worked for the federal government for nine years and is currently employed as a financial coordinator with DND.
