Councillor Cory Lago

Councillor Cory Lago

     I am a 4th generation Sioux Lookouter and was born here in 1969. I attended primary school in Sioux and graduated from QEDHS in 1987. After high school I went to college for 2 years and spent another 4 years at the University of Manitoba, where I received my degree in Social Work (BSW), with my courses geared towards the geriatric field.
    I started working for the family business, Al’s Sports Excellence in 1989, and am closing in on my 25th year of work there. In 2003 I became part owner. It has truly been a great experience and I am still learning new things all the time.
    In my mid 30’s I decided that it was time to give back to my home town. Being an avid fisherman and hunter, the logical spot to volunteer was with the Sioux Lookout Anglers and Hunters club. In 2008 I took over the role of President for the club and we have since created many great events for our community over the past decade. I will continue with the President’s role into the future.
    Through the club I started a bass tournament that lasted for 3 summers during the Blueberry Festival. From the bass tournament came the idea for a community walleye tournament. So in 2007 I founded the first ever the Sioux Lookout Walleye Weekend with some other great volunteers. I still continue in the Directors position for this annual event and help coordinate and run the tournament.
    Politics has been a big part of my life, but I have been more interested, politically, on a Provincial and Federal level. I always wanted to get involved, and had been asked to run locally many times. In 2018, I made the leap into Municipal politics. It will be a steep learning curve, but I am ready to get to work, I am able to provide the time needed, I will be out and about listening to what the residents are discussing, and provide my feedback on every issue at the council table.
