The Native People of Sudbury Development Corporation (NPSDC) Board of Directors currently consists of the following volunteers:

James King-Séguin

Executive Director, Non Voting Secretary

James (Jim) King-Séguin was born in Iroquois Falls, Ontario. He moved to Sudbury to attend Laurentian University. After earning a Bachelor of Arts degree with a double major in Native Studies and Law & Justice, he was hired as the Housing Coordinator for Native People of Sudbury Development Corporation in 1984. When first hired, he was the only employee of the corporation and was responsible for all duties required to manage 31 housing units scattered throughout Sudbury.
