Sheldon Baikie, P.Eng.

    Sheldon BaikieSheldon’s career path has been anything but typical. First, Sheldon obtained a kinesiology degree focusing on the business side of sport and recreation. Returning to Labrador, he started working with the provincial government and Nunatsiavut government for roughly 10 years in various capacities before deciding to shift gears. Through his involvement as an administrator in the construction of the Illusuak Cultural Centre in Nain, Labrador, he became very interested in the geotechnical engineering required for the foundations and decided to return to school to study civil engineering. Six years after relocating his family to St. John’s, he completed his engineering degree and began working with the Voisey’s Bay Underground mine project. Sheldon is currently working with Newfoundland Power as asset management lead after contributing to substation, generation, and transmission line design throughout the past seven years.

    Sheldon is originally from North West River, Labrador and is a proud beneficiary of the Nunatsiavut Land Lands Agreement.  He has been engaged in several volunteer committees including the National Engineering and Geoscience Month Committee of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Newfoundland and Labrador, and more recently became involved with the Indigenous Advisory Committee of Engineers Canada and WISE NL’s (Women in Science and Engineering Newfoundland and Labrador) Indigenous STEM Youth Gathering. In his spare time, he enjoys travelling, golfing, hiking, and biking with his family.
