Cameron Clark was Ontario's Deputy Minister of Northern Development and Mines from 1999 until his retirement to Thunder Bay in 2005, where he serves as a Trustee of Lakehead University and as a Director of the Quetico Foundation and of the Trans Canada Trail. He was previously the Assistant Deputy Minister for the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and a Director of the Ontario Clean Water Agency.
