Candace Thomson applied for a communications job in the mining industry on a whim seven years ago and never looked back. 

She has in-house and agency experience across a variety of sectors. In her current role, Candace is a communications advisor for Nutrien Ag Solutions. Previously, she has worked at Edelman and De Beers Group in Yellowknife, NT and Calgary. She has worked on internal and external corporate communications campaigns and projects, social media strategy and content development, crisis communications and more. With a Bachelor of English (Hons.) from the Memorial University of Newfoundland, a Bachelor of Journalism from the University of King’s College in Halifax, N.S. and experience as a reporter and editor in Canada’s North, Candace is an avid storyteller.

Candace is a true East Coaster with a love of meeting people and hearing their stories, sea shanty tunes and seafood. She’s a proud dog-and-cat-mom, always has a book under her arm and in her free time can be found reading, enjoying time outside with her pets and partner, or bingeing baking or true crime shows (and everything in between) on Netflix.
