Darryl Whitney » Chief and Council
Darryl Whitney was elected as a Council member of the Tsuut’ina Nation in 2002, and has since served the people for seven terms and a total of fourteen years. He is a current holder of the Programs portfolio for the 2014-2016 term.
He graduated from the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) as a Journeyman Carpenter in 1992. He then went on to complete his Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) Housing Inspector Training in 1996 and continued with the Alberta Safety Codes Training in 2000.
Prior to his political career, Darryl worked as the Treaty Seven Housing Inspector and has visited many homes in the Treaty Seven area.
Mr. Whitney has volunteered his time mentoring the youth to help develop their carpentry skills and also provided assistance to the Nation at various events. His strong commitment to the community encouraged him to retire from Cattle Ranching to ensure complete dedication to his expected role as a Council member.
Darryl is known for his personal values of accountability, fairness, transparency and honesty. He has a strong commitment to the Tsuut’ina Nation community, and demonstrates these values by being an active committee member of the Treasury Board of Finance, the Hospitality Committee that oversees the Hotel and Convention Center and as Co-Chairman of the Education Board.
Darryl is married to his wife Tammy, and is a proud parent to their three children Josh, Moriah and Quaid.
