Welcoming Cristal Glass-Painchaud to RRU


The Human Resources department is thrilled to welcome our newest colleague Cristal Glass-Painchaud to the team and the Royal Roads community!

Cristal has assumed the role of associate director at Human Resources specializing in employee and labour relations. She will be providing strategic guidance and leadership to the team and to managers in these areas.  

Cristal has most recently joined us from Baptist Housing Enhanced Seniors Living where she held the role of human resources director for the Victoria Region since 2016. She also brings 17 years’ experience from Saskatchewan Polytechnic where she held various senior level roles.

Cristal is also a proud alumni of Royal Roads. She completed her graduate certificate in leadership in 2015. She also holds a Bachelors of Education and her Certified Human Resources Professional designation.

Cristal and her husband Shawn moved to Vancouver Island in 2015 from Saskatoon, SK. They purposely moved into the Maple Bay area on Mt. Tzhouhalem to be able to enjoy all the island had to offer, from mountains to ocean and lakes. In her leisure time, she loves spending time outdoors and particularly on the water.

Cristal’s office is located on the third floor of the Milward Building. We encourage you to come by and join us in extending a warm Royal Roads welcome!
