Getting to Know EKFH Treasurer – Mike Calder

Submitted by EKFH on 18-09-2013 Mike is an assurance and accounting partner with BDO Canada LLP with 16 years experience providing accounting, tax and business advisory services to entrepreneurial, owner-managed businesses as well as individuals. Mike began articling with BDO in Calgary in 1997 before moving back to Cranbrook in 2000. As Mike grew up in Cranbrook and had a mother that worked as a registered nurse at the local hospital, he has seen many changes over the years, specifically the transformation to the regional health care facility it is today. He is looking forward to working with the EKFH board to continue its strong tradition for improving health care at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital and other facilities in the region. Mike believes the mission of EKFH to provide funding to the facilities in the East Kootenay region is critical to enhancing the health care system in our area and is proud to be a part of it. In order to be successful in achieving these goals, the foundation will need to continue to be active in many fundraising opportunities as well as the promotion of these activities, understanding the needs of the stakeholders and nurturing the relationships EKFH has with the various groups, donors and Interior Health.
