Ronald Woytowich is the Executive Director for Kikinahk Friendship Center in La Ronge.

This married (40 years) father of four and proud grandfather of three, has been at Kikinahk for the last 20+ years, coming to the centre in 1995 to fill the role of their bookkeeper, before he became the Executive Director a few years later. This short, chubby, man with the distinguished bald spot (all over) really loves his job, all of the staff, and the community. To him Kikinahk is the best place to work, because, of everything it does for the community.

Ron holds a number of degrees with the one in Public Administration being the most useful, because it has given him the knowledge to maneuver through the Federal and Provincial bureaucracies and funding opportunities open to Aboriginal organizations and Charities. He is also an accountant and is a member of the Canadian Aboriginal Financial Managers Association. Ron also possesses a Pro.Dir designation from the Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy respecting Board Governance.

He has been a board member of various other community boards and organizations, including having served on the National Association of Friendship Centres as well. He is currently a board member of Cable Ronge in La Ronge, and is currently the Chair of the Mamawetan Churchill River Health Region.
