VP & Senior Advisor, Global Network for Community Safety

Ken Hunter is a retired career police officer and a founding member of Community Mobilization Prince Albert (CMPA), and for four years, he served as the first Hub Chair and Executive Director of the Centre of Responsibility (COR). He has personally chaired over 400 Hub meetings and 1,200 Hub discussions in Prince Albert. Ken played an instrumental role in working with Saskatchewan’s Information Sharing Issues Working Group to create and adapt a privacy-protecting Filter Process to the Hub model.

In his role at the COR, Ken has overseen multiple analytic projects on risk-based data, has guided the development and advancement of opportunity papers for systemic change, and has hosted over 30 delegations to the CMPA offices, including the Premier of Saskatchewan, the Governor General for Canada, and the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security.

After retiring from CMPA, Ken served as a special advisor to Saskatchewan’s Building Partnerships to Reduce Crime initiative and the Crossroads Project in 2015-16. In February 2016, Ken joined the Global Network for Community Safety as a senior advisor. In this capacity, he has provided Hub training, development and guidance to communities in Prince Edward Island, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia. He also played a major developmental role in Global Network’s online Hub eLearning—which has helped to train and support Hub practitioners in over 30 communities across Canada. More recently, Ken assisted to train and launch the first on-reserve First Nation Hub in Saskatchewan.

Ken is a partner in the Global Network for Community Safety.

KEYNOTE PRESENTATION: Collaborative Risk-Driven Intervention, Responsible Information Sharing.

This segment will examine the evolution of the ‘Hub model’, established in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan and its subsequent adoption in communities across Canada in the six years since the Prince Albert Hub was launched. A focus of this segment will discuss the fidelity and discipline of this Community Safety and Well-being (CSWB) model as it pertains to information sharing and privacy.



Executive Director, Waterloo Region Crime Prevention Council

Christiane Sadeler is the Executive Director of the Waterloo Region Crime Prevention Council (WRCPC) which is a partnership between community and local government for crime prevention through social development in the Region of Waterloo. She is also the founding co-chair of the Canadian Municipal Network on Crime Prevention.

Born and raised in Germany, Christiane immigrated to Canada in 1989 after a decade of living in England and New Zealand. She has taught graduate courses in community engagement, worked in direct care, managed several multi-disciplinary teams and has led policy & planning efforts in areas such as mental health, teen parenting, victims of childhood abuse and neglect, young and adult offenders, and with victims and offenders of sexual abuse. Her passion and by extension much of her work is often focused on those who live at the margins of our communities. In working collaboratively with diverse service providers, grass roots groups, enforcement and justice services and with all orders of government Christiane shows a strong preference for community based solutions and prevention approaches that challenge us to think about old problems in new ways. When not at a board room or kitchen table, she can most likely be found somewhere in the great outdoors soaking up silence, canoeing, hiking and taking photos.
