Crystal Blain

Founder and #1 Auntie

Ask Auntie Consulting Inc.


Crystal is a proud member of the Peguis First Nation located in Manitoba, Canada. Her passion for working with Survivors of Indian Residential School (IRS) and Day Schools (DS) comes naturally – from her family’s own personal experience – as a first-generation IRS Survivor, she appreciates the importance of being trauma informed. Coupled with her work as a Gladue Report writer, striving to house homeless Indigenous people, ensuring that the Rights of the Mikisew Cree are upheld, and cooperating alongside Chiefs and Councils in various roles, Crystal is fully aware of the need to create respectful, ongoing relationships and does so with ease.   

Crystal is the #1 Auntie of Ask Auntie Consulting, working with clients to choose courage as they advance Reconciliation and foster positive relationships with Indigenous Peoples.  

Crystal holds a BA in General Studies from the University of Calgary, along with a Diploma in Professional Writing from Mount Royal College. She sits on the Board of Directors for the Aboriginal Friendship Centre of Calgary and understands that we must build connections in order to build communities.
