Master of Ceremonies | Stan Wesley

Born and raised in Moose Factory, Ontario, a Cree community on the South coast of James Bay, Stan as a youth began what would be a life-long career of bringing laughter and meaning to audiences with the creation of “Bunnuck,” a weekly show that aired on TVO and TVNC for several seasons.

Since then, for over 20 years, Stan has engaged and entertained audiences with his unique style of fun and depth in presentations, keynotes, emcee and facilitation services. Stan speaks on a variety of issues with a focus on celebrating success and advancing good, healthy relations among Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples.

Stan has worked at the local, regional, provincial and national levels. With his high energy, sincere professional approach, he is considered by many to be one of the top speakers in the country today.

Stan currently lives in Toronto with his wife, Mandy and their daughters Maya and Tenona.
