Oneil Carlier was born and raised in Val Marie, Saskatchewan, where his family has raised cattle and grown crops for several generations. He moved to Alberta in 2002 and has lived in Whitecourt-Ste. Anne since 2010 with his wife Michèle.
Before moving to Alberta, Oneil worked for twenty years with Agriculture Canada as a geotechnical technician. It was there that he became involved with his union, the Public Service Alliance of Canada. The labour movement has allowed Oneil to become an advocate for not only worker’s rights but also for social justice issues.
Since 2002, Oneil has worked as a regional representative with the PSAC, a position that enables Oneil to help protect working families’ rights on a full time basis.
