About

Bio

Andrew Stevens is Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Business Administration at the University of Regina. His research and teaching specializes in labour relations, issues of work and employment, migrant and foreign labour settlement in Saskatchewan, and collective bargaining. Andrew gained an international perspective on the challenges facing workers around the world after conducting field work in India, the UK, Switzerland, and Belgium.

Upon returning to Saskatchewan in 2012 from Kingston, Ontario where he completed his PhD, Andrew was quick to join a handful of progressive organizations in Regina. He is an active board and executive member with Briarpatch Magazine, the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, the Unemployed Workers Help Centre, and the Regina and District Labour Council. Andrew is also a volunteer with the Regina Open Door Society, where he is currently helping a Syrian refugee family settle in the city.

When he’s not in the classroom or volunteering, Andrew is an avid jogger and cyclist. In 2014 and 2015 he took part in the QCM here in Regina. One of his favourite pastimes is fishing with his kids at Last Mountain Lake… at least when they aren’t tangling their lines or getting caught with hooks.
