David Filmon Named Vice-Chair for CentrePort Canada


This post was written prior to our January 2017 merger, under our previous firm name, Aikins, MacAulay & Thorvaldson LLP.

David Filmon is the new Vice-Chairman for CentrePort Canada Inc.

Dave practices in the areas of securities and mergers and acquisitions law and he is a member of firm’s executive board. He was nominated by the City of Winnipeg.

CentrePort Canada is a 20 thousand acre dry port and Foreign Trade Zone located in Winnipeg, and it has the distinction of being the only inland port in the country with tri-modal transportation – meaning it has direct access to truck, rail and air cargo. It is also a staging area for the north to the Port of Churchill, with access to Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and the Mediterranean. Chris Lorenc, president of the Manitoba Heavy Construction Association and former city councilor, will take over as CentrePort’s Chair. Former Chariman Don Streuber will remain on the board as past-chair and nominee of the Manitoba Trucking Association.
