Paul Macedo

Communications Officer

Paul is a graduate of the University of Alberta where he received a Bachelors of Education and a Masters of Business Administration.

After graduating, Paul spent the next 25 years working in marketing and communications. Paul’s career has ranged from overseeing satellite distribution for 35+ northern Alberta Indigenous communities to developing a compressive marketing and sales strategy for Windspeaker/AMMSA’s many media brands including: CFWE radio, Alberta Sweetgrass and Windspeaker and many others. 

Paul was instrumental in developing the first website for Windspeaker in 1996 which was then transformed, with his leadership, into some of Canada’s largest Indigenous news and information web properties. Most recently Paul has focused on developing social media strategies to grow readership and revenues for AMMSA’s media brands as the organization shifted from its reliance on traditional media.

Paul has extensive knowledge of Indigenous communities - having travelled to and worked with most First Nations and Métis Settlements in Alberta and several more in western Canada. Paul has worked with governments of all levels as well as with corporations and non-profit organizations in developing effective and culturally-sensitive strategies to communicate with Indigenous people and their communities throughout Canada.

Paul is excited to promote the tremendous work that Cando does as the leading authority on Indigenous Economic Development.
