Chidi Igwe, Director of Communications

I was born in Nigeria and trained in Canada. I have been in various classrooms both as a learner and as a teacher.

I have a BA (Ambrose Ali University, Ekpoma), an MA (University of Regina), and a PhD (Dalhousie University, Halifax). All three degrees are in the areas of French language and linguistics, translation and languages for special purposes.

I am the author of Taking Back Nigeria from 419 (published in 2007) as well as many scholarly articles in reputable academic journals.

I have experience in academics and years of leadership roles in both the private and public sectors. I served eight years at the University of Regina as an Assistant Professor.

As an entrepreneur, I owned and operated my own small businesses and corporations, including INCH Communications Inc. and Website Father.

Since September 2015, I have been serving in the public sector as a Communications Consultant with the Government of Saskatchewan. I served with the Ministry of Education from 2015 to 2019.

Since February 2019, I serve in three ministries: Energy & Resources, Immigration and Career Training, and Trade & Export Development.

I love the challenges of communications and enjoy helping public servants, publicly elected leaders and managers at various levels of government to say things in ways that citizens and regular folks can understand.

I have served on the board of many community-based and not-for-profit organizations, including the Multilingual Association of Regina (MLAR), and the Saskatchewan Organization for Heritage Languages (SOHL). I am the president of the Igbo Cultural Association of Saskatchewan, vice president of the Nigerian-Canadian Association of Regina, and Program Director of the Igbo Studies Association.

I am passionate about helping the African Canadian Resource Network to continue to increase its visibility within and outside Saskatchewan through the development and implementation of internal and external communications strategies.
