Phil McIntyre-Paul
Senior Consultant

He has helped develop the Trail Alliance Business Plan, the Shuswap Trails Strategy, facilitate the creation of the Shuswap Trails Roundtable, and submited countless grant applications. In June of 2021, Phil took a step back from the day-to-day running of the organization and transitioned to the role of Senior Consultant, so he can continue to support us on project work.  Phil's background is in Community Development, Tourism Management and Experential Event creation and implementation.

The Shuswap Trail Alliance is privileged to support projects throughout the region on behalf of our many partners.  Fundraising, donations, grants, and partner contracts allow us to hire project trail crews each year. Size, season, and timing is variable, depending on available funding and project priorities - so we always welcome submission of resumes from qualified candidates each season to keep on file should project funding be secured and warrant hiring. Recruitment is always pending funding, so we recommend checking back in seasonally to renew your resume.
