Craig Donkin was born and raised on an acreage just outside of Edson, Alberta. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Mount Royal University in Calgary where he majored in Sociology and minored in Political Science.
Prior to pursuing higher education, Craig followed in the footsteps of his father and grandfather, working in the oil and gas industry. Craig received his Juris Doctor in 2017 from Bond University, located in South East Queensland, Australia. While attending classes at Bond, Craig was able to volunteer within the community. First with the Queensland Police where he worked closely with police prosecutors, working on criminal matters. The second volunteer opportunity involved the not-for-profit Robina Community Legal Centre. Here Craig was privy to all sorts of legal matters from family, criminal, and real estate.
Craig started working for Rowanoak Law in mid-July 2017. He was called to the bar on December 20, 2018. In his spare time, you can find Craig with his girlfriend Madison and their new puppy Poppy. Otherwise, he loves to be outside camping, fishing, hiking. Also, he is currently seeking a coaching or volunteer position with a sports team within the community of Sylvan Lake.
Craig looks forward to becoming a part of the thriving community of Sylvan Lake.
