Canada Trustee

Chuck Armitage has held senior positions in the media industry for over 20 years. He was recruited to work in Asia and spent 2 1/2 years in the Philippines and 18 months in HK working for an Asia based media company. Chuck was instrumental in developing a number of large trade fairs throughout China and HK and managed the first China Sourcing Fair that took place in HK. He has a BSc in Computer Science from University of Western Ontario and an MBA from the Schulich School of Business at York University.

Chuck first started scuba diving at the age of 14 and did his open water dive on a May weekend with a thin sheet of ice on the waters of Georgian Bay. He has dove several times in the Caribbean as well but it was the crystal waters and remarkable reefs of the Philippines that ignited his passion. He has also seen the devastation of dynamite fishing on the reefs and spent countless dives looking for sharks that never appeared.
