Lance Triskle

Professor, Honours Bachelor of Police Studies


Lance Triskle is an Anishinabe of Red Rock Indian Band. He’s also a faculty member in the Human Services and Community Safety portfolio at Georgian College. He teaches Dispute Resolution, Indigenous Justice: Advocacy and Community Development, Introduction to Criminal Law, Introduction to Security Skills, and Professional Standards for Policing.

He earned a Bachelor of Arts in English and Political Science from the University of Western Ontario, a Bachelor of Laws from Queen’s University, a Teaching and Training certificate from Georgian College, and a Master of Laws from Osgoode Hall Law School at York University.

Lance is a lawyer at the Bar of Ontario and member of the Law Society of Ontario. He’s also a member of the International Association for Healthcare Security & Safety.

During his major research project as part of his master’s degree, he worked in collaboration with an Indigenous organization to develop and implement a human resources policy including Indigenous dispute resolution processes.

Lance enjoys running, riding snowboards, and riding rollercoasters with his family. He continues to explore the rich features of Canada. Lance has traveled to the national capital, nine provincial capitals, two territorial capitals, and has visited more than 30 national parks and national historical sites. In addition, he has traveled to Fiji, enjoying the rainforests and standing on the International Date Line.

I am honoured to teach students in their first year and their last year of the program. I watch students develop from new learners to community safety professionals. Students are exposed to new concepts, ideas and values during their journey of discovery at Georgian College. They apply learning and skills from earlier courses to later courses. Ultimately, students question the roles and responsibilities of community safety professionals. Following graduation, our students regularly return to campus to share their experiences with students following in their footsteps.
