Erica Owen, Community Technician
Poplar Hill First Nation

Erica Owen is a Poplar Hill First Nation band member who has been using information and communications technologies (ICTs) for one year. As the Community Technician, she repairs computers, hooks up computers, does maintenance on the cable system, resets the system when required, and trains people on computer and ICT usage.

Keeping the community’s system operating and helping people with their computers are the two priorities that motivate Erica’s work each day. Over the past year she helped to train more people how to use computers and ICTs.

Her future goal is to continue planning more computer workshops to train more people on ICT usage.
