Connor Donaldson grew up in Ladner in the municipality of Delta, British Columbia. Over the next 16 years, he received his elementary education at Ladner Elementary and secondary education at Delta Secondary until grade 10. In 2012, he moved to Whitehorse, Yukon along with his mother, Heather Avison, and step-father, Roy Jantzen, in order to help his aunt who had been diagnosed with a brain tumour. While there, Connor attended an experiential science program at Wood Street Centre for the first semester of grade 11, and graduated from FH Collins Secondary in 2014. After high school, he was accepted at the University of Regina and took classes in pre-journalism. After the first semester, Connor decided to take a break and spent the next year working in the Yukon. While there, he worked for roughly 3 months as a gas station clerk at Bernie’s Gas and 10 months at Your Independent Grocer as a baker. Near the beginning of 2016, he applied for and was accepted into the INCA summer institute.
