Hi, I’m Howard Oakey from Halifax , Nova Scotia.

After a career in commercial financing I retired from Maritime Life Assurance Company in 2004.

I curl out of the CFB Halifax Curling Clubwhere I have served on the Board of Directors for a number of years including President. I currently sit on the Board as Chair of our Day League. Within the sport of curling I have held Chair positions at the 2005 Canadian Curling Trials in Halifax, the 2010 Tim Horton’s Brier, Halifax and the 2015 Ford Word Curling Championships, Halifax.  I curled against the Scots incoming tours in 1993, 2003 and 2013.

In other areas of life I have participated at the board level and as a general volunteer. 

  • National President,  Real Estate Institute of Canada  (2004 – 2005)
  • Board Member (including Treasurer and Vice chair),  Real Estate Commission of Nova Scotia  (2002 – 2008)
  • Various positions on the Board of Bedford Lawn Bowls Club, including President  (2012-2016)
  • Currently as Vice President of Nova Scotia Lawn Bowls Association I’ll be stepping into President’s Chair in 2017.
  • Treasurer of the Parkwood Condominium Association  (2012 -2015)
  • At an earlier time when the family was young I coached in soccer and basketball.
  • General volunteer activity for organizations like Cancer Society, United Way and Heart & Stroke.

 

 

Over my adult life I have continuously given back to my community through volunteer efforts. This has resulted in meeting some great people. I enjoy running, working out at the gym, walking, bridge; coin collecting, travelling, cooking, being a grandfather and “meeting people”!
