Marty Klyne Named to Senate

A self-made successful entrepreneur, Klyne was born and raised in Regina and graduated with distinction from the University of Regina with a degree in business administration and finance. He worked as an account manager with The Mercantile Bank of Canada and then in retail banking and fiduciary services with the Royal Trust Corporation of Canada.

He then served as president and CEO of the Sasknative Economic Development Corporation, a commercial lender and business advisory group serving Saskatchewan’s Métis entrepreneurs. Along with his wife, Charlene, he established Regina’s Maaco Collision Repair & Auto Painting. He was publisher of the Regina Leader-Post and The StarPhoenix from 2008 to 2013. He also served as CEO of the RCMP Heritage Centre, the Saskatchewan Gaming Corporation and the Queen City Sports Entertainment Group, which owns the Regina Pats.

In addition to his leadership of the Métis capital corporation in Saskatchewan, Klyne has served on numerous committees and boards, including the National Aboriginal Economic Development Board. According to Prime Minster’s Office press release announcing his appointment, Klyne “has spent much of his time advancing Aboriginal economic development and speaking up for Aboriginal interests to accelerate their participation in the mainstream economy.”

MNC President Chartier welcomed the appointment and praised Mr. Klyne for his service to the Métis Nation. “When we were developing the Métis Nation economic development strategy, Marty Klyne enthusiastically took up the task of chairing a series of regional economic development conferences and then chaired the third Métis Nation Economic Symposium in 2015 where we concluded a Canada-Métis Nation Economic Development Accord. I have no doubt the Senate will also benefit from his experience and commitment.”
