Carmichael attended Collingwood Collegiate Institute, the Bradford Model School and Regina Normal School. He was a schoolteacher for seven years, having received his teachers' certificate in Saskatchewan. From 1910 to 1922 he was secretary-treasurer for the rural municipality of Kindersley (#290) and chaired the area's school board for four years. He also served as secretary-treasurer of several rural phone companies.[1]

He was first elected to Parliament at the Kindersley riding in the 1921 general election then re-elected there in 1925, 1926 and 1930. After completing his fourth term, the 17th Canadian Parliament, Carmichael left federal politics and did not seek re-election in the 1935 vote.
