Councillor - Rick Owen


Councillor Rick OwenHome town: Brampton On
Education: Diploma in Print Journalism, Sheridan College; BA, Trent University

I moved to Kirkland Lake in 1982 to get experience in my new career as a journalist and then move back to southern Ontario. It wasn't long before I realized I enjoyed the Northern lifestyle and the strong sense of community in Kirkland Lake. I have never regretted my decision to remain in Kirkland Lake.

I am married to Charlene (Kilian) and together we raised our three children, Richard, Brian and Stephanie.

Over the years I was active on many boards, organizations, and committees prior to running for council.

During my career at then Northern Daily News I was City Editor, News Wire Editor, Chief Photographer and Senior Reporter. As a journalist I was exposed to every aspect of life in Kirkland Lake. Prior to moving to Kirkland Lake I worked in manufacturing, retail sales including owning my own retail business and the hospitality industry.

I look forward in my second term as a Councillor to serving the residents, and businesses as we continue to build on the town's successes and embrace new opportunities to make Kirkland Lake an even better place to live, work and raise a family.
