Superintendent,Safety, Health, Environment and Quality
Daley McIntyre grew up in the northern Saskatchewan community of La Ronge, and because of opportunities with Cameco, has been able to build her career surrounded by the beauty of the North.
After working for Cameco all four summers while attaining her engineering degree at the University of Saskatchewan, McIntyre took a job in 2002 with the company’s environmental protection department at Key Lake. She has remained at Key Lake ever since, earning a number of promotions to now lead the Safety, Health, Environment and Quality team as Superintendent.
“Working here keeps me in touch with northern Saskatchewan,” says McIntyre. “People here are very friendly and they love to laugh. Even more importantly, I get to be involved in understanding and protecting the northern environment. This company feels like family and this place feels like home.”
McIntyre has benefited from a number of leadership programs while at Cameco. “Attending the 2010 WNU Summer Institute in Oxford, England was the most interesting thing I’ve ever done,” she says. “It was an opportunity to network with 90 amazing young professionals from 35 countries. It gave me a broader understanding of the entire nuclear industry, from a technical, social and political perspective.”
That big picture thinking motivated her to return to site with a renewed drive. “As populations and energy demands continue to grow, it’s important we take advantage of the clean energy our industry provides,” says McIntyre. “I’m very proud to be part of the solution.”
