About Jason Walker PsyD, PhD

Dr. Walker specializes in psychology, psychometrics, research, Indigenous relations, and civil mediation. He is known for his work as an expert in the assessment, investigation, and intervention of workplace bullying, harassment, and sexual misconduct. Jason works with organizations on complex human resource issues, organizational development, policy development as well as mental wellness.

Dr. Walker has over 17 years of progressive leadership experience in the private and public sectors (health and social services) with 7 years working in Indigenous communities across Canada. He is a published academic author on issues related to mental health, workplace bullying and harassment and policy development.

Jason began his career as a child protection worker in Toronto investigating horrific child abuse, sex assaults, and major crimes. He left Toronto and attended the University of Calgary where he attempted unsuccessfully to complete a Ph.D. focusing on assessment tool crimes against children. After withdrawing from U of C being unable to manage his anxiety and depression along with his perceived academic failure he lied about his credentials. In 2009 this caught up to him and he answered for this mistake to the courts. Since that time Jason has dedicated his career towards supporting people living with trauma.

Today, Dr. Walker is known for his commitment and work to his community and sits on multiple not-for-profit boards that support the social and mental well being of others. He works across Canada with organizations building by dealing with complex social, health, education, mental health and administrative issues in a respectful and safe way.
