AIMA Canada Launches Alberta, B.C. Committees

Jan 24 2013 | 9:24am ET

The Alternative Investment Management Association's Canadian branch is looking west.

The industry group has established regional committees in Canada's westernmost provinces, Alberta and British Columbia. The move follows the creation of AIMA Canada's first regional committee in Québec three years ago.

"We are delighted to welcome this group of distinguished industry leaders to our national organization," Spartan Fund Management's Gary Ostoich, chairman of AIMA Canada, said. "The creation of these new regional committees represents the next logical step in the development and growth of AIMA Canada as a national entity and further enhances our contribution to the industry and our growing membership."

The Alberta committee is co-chaired by Grafton Asset Management's Leslie Vicker and Auspice Capital Advisors' Basil D'Souza. The British Columbia committee is co-chaired by Jonathan Lotz of law firm Heenan Blaikie and Fiera Capital Corp.'s Roland Wood.
