Gisele and Leonard Jubinville
Leonard Jubinville grew up on a mixed farm in Lousanna, Alberta. An
entrepreneur even as a child, he has raised pigs and cattle, sold milk and
A carpenter by trade, he started his own construction
company soon after completing his apprenticeship. Jubinville bought a farm
near Red Deer, and took to raising bison, whitetail deer and horses. He
began farming deer in 1989, assisting with the extraction of deer from the
wild to help establish a seed stock in Alberta. He soon began to
concentrate his efforts on creating a handling system for his animals that
would be safe and efficient. This work led to the creation of the Deerhandler, an invention that his company, Declayna Whitetail and Bison
Co., distributes and sells online to farms across North America.
Jubinville served for three years as a vice president,
president and director of the Alberta Venison Council. He also helped to
form the Alberta Whitetail and Mule Deer Association.
Gisele Jubinville grew up on a farm in the Bonnyville
area. She has worked as an office manager and bookkeeper, but most
recently has found success as a medium and soul therapist, running her own
business, Therapy Nouvelle, in St. Albert. Gisele paints, and has written
Therapy for the Soul, published in 2002.
The Jubinvilles are currently testing their latest
invention: a portable tethering kit for horses. This invention is patent
pending, and the husband and wife team are planning to market it
themselves in the near future.
