Until his retirement in 2007, Peter was the Executive Vice‐President, Corporate Affairs and a member of the Board of Directors of Aur Resources Inc., a Canadian mining company. He retired when Aur was taken over. Prior to joining Aur in 1989, Peter practiced corporate and securities law with Aird & Berlis, a Toronto law firm, since 1980. Peter has a Bachelor of Laws (LL.B) from Osgoode Hall and an MBA from York University.
He is married with 3 children. His involvement in FAR and his interest in the area of substance use disorder arose as a result of one of his children’s struggles with addiction from the age of 14. That child is now in recovery. Peter’s experiences in dealing with his child’s addiction led to his belief that a national organization like FAR is needed to support families struggling with addiction.
