Board of Directors


The Board of Directors, elected at a meeting of the members in September 2019, are: 

Paul Kishchuk, President: Paul is a public finance economist with 25 years of applied research experience. He holds BA and MA degrees in economics and founded Vector Research, an independent economic research consultancy in 1999. Paul has completed more than 20 evaluation projects (monitoring frameworks, formative / summative evaluations) for Yukon clients in the public and not-for profit sectors. Paul is hoping to see the practice of evaluation evolve in a manner appropriate for the Yukon's small population sizes and diverse communities. 

Travis Armour, Vice-President: Travis is a public policy economist with 25 years experience working in Canada's North for all levels of government, including several Yukon First Nation governments. Travis graduated with an MA in Economics from Queen's University, and after several senior policy positions, formed StrategyNorth ( in 2010. He has completed a wide array of projects for the public and not-for-profit sectors, ranging from impact-based strategic planning, Board governance and program evaluation, to conducting feasibility studies and developing new programs (and supporting legislation and policies). Travis is hoping to ensure that evaluation methodologies are reflective of cultural and other Indigenous considerations, and based on legitimately-framed and valid impact statements and indicators.
