Micheil (Mike) Cameron Hill

Wilderness Medical Instructor

Mike has been exploring and learning in the outdoors since he was a child. Discovering a place for the first time, or the hundredth, has always been one of his primary joys. Sharing and introducing others to the spirit of the place only makes it better.

Mike has worked as an expedition guide since 2010 canoeing, hiking, and skiing in the Canadian Arctic. Through Boreal River, Mike became a Wilderness Medical Instructor in 2017 combining his interests in health science and the outdoors.

In his remaining time, Mike manages to wander into the clinic to work as an orthopedic physiotherapist.

Originally from Caledon East, Ontario, Mike now makes his home in Ottawa.
