Nadine Barber – Profile

Nadine Barber, Interim Executive Director

Nadine has over 25 years of public affairs, issues management and corporate communications experience. While the bulk of her career has been in the upstream oil and gas industry, she has worked in agriculture, health, and environmental services. Nadine has been privileged to work with teams and communities from coast to coast to coast on important natural resource projects and initiatives. She is passionate about advocating for the great people, projects, communities and companies that together make up Alberta’s resource and construction sector.

Nadine sits on the Board of Inside Education and holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree from Saint Mary’s University and a Bachelor of Public Relations degree from Mount Saint Vincent University.

“A new chapter for both me and two evolving organizations today as I take over duties as Interim Executive Director of the Alberta Chamber of Resources and the Construction Owners Association of Alberta,” Nadine commented. “I’m excited about the opportunity to work with such an engaged membership in both organizations dedicated to safety, productivity and responsible development of Alberta’s natural resources.”

We are excited to have Nadine joining us!


The Construction Owners Association of Alberta recognizes that COAA’s office in Edmonton is located within Treaty 6 Territory and within the Métis homelands and Métis Nation of Alberta Region 4. We further acknowledge that what we call Alberta is the traditional and ancestral territory of many peoples, presently subject to Treaties 6, 7, and 8. Namely: the Blackfoot Confederacy – Kainai, Piikani, and Siksika – the Cree, Dene, Saulteaux, Nakota Sioux, Stoney Nakoda, and the Tsuu T’ina Nation and the Métis People of Alberta. We acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit who have lived in and cared for these lands for generations and we are grateful for the traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today and those who have gone before us. We make this acknowledgement as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on or are visiting.
