Hello and welcome to my site.

I am a human resources, labourMichael Coyle relations and board governance consultant with over 35 years’ experience in employment, labour and human rights law, non-profit board governance, municipal government law and dispute resolution. I am currently on the board of directors of the National Diabetes Trustee Corporation and Chair of their Governance, Nominations and Human Resources Committee. The Diabetes National Trust is a social enterprise in the recycling business operating across Canada. I also serve on the board of Diabetes Canada where I am on the People & Culture Committee. Both Diabetes Canada and the Diabetes National Trust are based in Toronto.

Here in Nova Scotia, I chair the board of the Annapolis Valley-Hants Community Action Program for Children (better known as the Kids Action Program). Kids Action is funded primarily by the Public Health Agency of Canada to bring supportive services and programs to disadvantaged children and their families in rural and remote areas.

Much of my work is in the healthcare sector. Recently, for example, I worked with emergency physicians in regional hospitals around the province to help them become organized as medical co-operatives.

I provide consulting and decision-support to employers and I handle special projects on a full range of HR, governance and labour relations issues. I am available as an impartial investigator, mediator and arbitrator for workplace disputes. I am a Retired Member of the Nova Scotia Barristers’ Society. I am an active member of the Chartered Professionals in Human Resources and a member of the Institute of Corporate Directors.
