Chad Ohman | Administrator, Mastodon Canada 

Chad Ohman, originally from the hamlet of Gwynne, Alberta, is a graduate of the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology now calls Edmonton home while working in healthcare IT. His passion for building community led him to (accidentally) founding Mastodon Canada, an online community of nearly 35,000 Canadians from coast to coast to coast. While not working, Chad enjoys singing with a local choir and volunteers with his neighbourhood’s Community League.
