Beth Hudson, traditionally from Sucker Creek First Nation in Treaty 8, was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta. Growing up, Beth was frequently the only Indigenous person in the room and felt isolated and alone in most areas of her life. Always an active kid, she found community and connection through sport and recreation, and pursued this passion through university and grad school, eventually finding a home in the Northwest Territories. She loves to help build capacity and opportunity for Indigenous youth by creating innovative strategies for overcoming the systemic and societal barriers that impact Indigenous communities. Beth continues to inspire change in the communities she works with. She has helped develop content for national programs and training for Aboriginal sport and has networked with national sport bodies in an effort to inspire change and use sport and recreation as a tool to help Indigenous youth overcome barriers.

In the four years I have worked with Andrea on projects, she has demonstrated an immense passion for creating a more accessible and equitable world, one organization and decision at a time.
She is a deep listener, and meets people where they are at, without judgement but nonetheless with a sense of collective accountability.
She models some of the core skills that I believe are at the heart of equity work: the reflexivity to recognize when we can do better, the humility and accountability to admit our role in it, the motivation to learn from it, and the work ethic and commitment to making the necessary changes, unflinchingly.

University of Alberta
It has been my pleasure to work with Andrea Carey in a number of capacities, as a
colleague, volunteer, and Board member.
Through both her professional and
volunteer lives, Andrea has made significant contributions in the Capital Region,
British Columbia, Canada, and beyond.
Andrea is an innovator who has demonstrated strong leadership as a recognized
expert on the inclusion of people with disabilities, indigenous people, and
newcomers, in sport and physical activity.
Andrea has been the driving force behind the OneAbility Collective Impact Initiative
on South Vancouver Island. There are now over 40 organizations working together to improve the active
living, recreation, and sport delivery system for people with disabilities in our
region, which has significantly improved awareness, program and service
opportunities, and education and training opportunities. The single greatest benefit
of Andrea’s initiative in creating OneAbility has been the networking and
collaboration between our local active living, recreation, and sports community.
This has greatly enhanced the opportunities available for people with disabilities of
all ages in our region.
Active Living Alliance for Canadians with Disabilities

and an encouraging champion of diversity and inclusion.
