Councillor Joe Cassidy


My Name is Joe Cassidy,

I was born in Hamilton, Ontario, and raised in the farming community of Jarvis, Ontario.  Most of my youth was spent playing hockey and football, as well as working on various farms and factories.  I attended high school in Brantford and Simcoe and eventually attended Sir Sandford Fleming College where I obtained Fish and Wildlife Technician and Technologist Diplomas.  My Summers during college were spent in Kirkland Lake, and Pickle Lake fighting forest fires, before moving on to trapping bears in Sioux Lookout in the Summer of 2008.  My career with the MNRF has led me through many different program areas, such as; CWD field crew lead, Acting Resource Technician, Silviculture Technician, Aging Lab Technician and eventually led me to my current position as a Integrated Resource Management Technician.  The majority of my work involves planning projects and coordinating staff and contractors and working with various stakeholders and members of the public. 

August 2019 marks my 11th year in Sioux Lookout,  I came here on a whim to trap bears and wound up falling in love with this town.  I met my wife here and started a family and grew my career here, I look forward to my time on council where I can provide influence and work with community members to help shape this town into an even better place for families to grow and live.
