Meet Your CANS Team!

It’s been a while since many of you have seen CANS staff in-person. With the way of the world continuing remotely, we thought it would be a great time to (re)introduce CANS team to our members on the digital front! This week, get to know…

Get to Know Lesley

Headline reads Meet Your CANS Team. Lesley Whynot – Manager, Projects & Information Services. Start date: June 2009. Photo is a selfie of Lesley smiling.


What do you like about working at CANS?

I like our members. Meeting CANS members and helping them to use CANSnet. I love begin part of an industry that shapes our province.

What is your favourite part of your workday?

My favourite part of work is when I get to meet new members and show them what CANS provides for services. I also really enjoy collaborating with other CANS staff on different projects.

What sets CANS apart from your past jobs?

I am passionate about CANS and construction so I feel the connection, especially with CANS membership.

Some of Lesley’s hobbies:

I am a busy mom to a very active 9-year-old boy. We love to be outside and explore our beautiful province by hiking and beachcombing.

Drag racing is a big part of our family and this coming summer our son will start racing with his very own dragster.

You might have met Lesley in-person at:

  • CANS annual De-icers,
  • DE Speaker Series events,
  • CANStech trade shows

I feel our members know me best from doing onboardings, signing statutory declarations and through the years I worked at the plans room window.
