Welcome

Aanii! Boozhoo! Hello! Bonjour! As President and Vice-Chancellor of Algoma University, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all students, staff, faculty, guests, and those who will soon be joining us.

Here, we are a student centered organization focused on student success. The vision for this university was built using the voices of our students who have continued to tell us they value small class sizes, close relationships with faculty, strong academic programming, and our commitment to overall student experience.

As we create memories and achieve our goals, it feels very special to acknowledge the traditional territory and lands of the Anishinabek where our collective journey is taking place. Our special mission of cross-cultural education is coming into its own as we welcome people from around the world who are gathering at the heart of the beautiful Great Lakes on the St. Mary’s River in Bawatting / Sault Ste. Marie to learn from and with each other. It is an exciting time to be at Algoma U.

We use the natural beauty of this area and region to design and offer experiences that will provide lasting memories for a lifetime. My hope for everyone that comes to Algoma is that, as part of the unique and special experience we offer, each of you, in some way, will be touched and transformed. Welcome!

Select Honouree to View
2017: Dr. Frank S. Sarlo

Frank S. Sarlo has had a distinguished and diverse professional and personal career.

As a young man growing up in Sault Ste. Marie, Frank attended St. Mary’s College and was the valedictorian of the first graduating class from the all-boys high school. He continued his post-secondary studies at the University of Windsor where he received a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science, and a Bachelor of Law from Osgoode Hall in Toronto. Frank was called to the Ontario Bar in 1969 and was later appointed to the Queen’s Counsel by the Province of Ontario in 1985.

Frank enjoyed a fulfilling career in law, where he specialized in Corporate and Commercial Law for close to 40 years. He was a partner in such Sault Ste. Marie based law firms, Caputo Sarlo Irwin, Sarlo O’Neill and most recently Wishart Law Firm LLP. Outside of his busy legal practice, Frank took a leadership role in many important successful initiatives that required bringing together community members and resources to meet specific challenges or goals. Among, numerous other community groups, Frank served as Chair of the Community Action Team, which was formed to support the restructuring of Algoma Steel Corporation, Chair of the Sault Ste.

Marie Chamber of Commerce and in 1992, Frank received from the Governor General of Canada, the Commemorative Medal for 125th Anniversary of the Confederation of Canada in recognition of significant contributions to compatriot community and to Canada.

2016: Jack Purvis

Jack Purvis has spent his entire life around the lure of the water. Born to a commercial fisherman, Jack and his family grew up living on Gore Bay, except during the summer months when his family resided at their fishing station at Quebec Harbour on Michipicoten Island.

Growing up around his father’s fish tugs, Jack developed a passion for steam engines and the marine environment, and it came as no surprise that one day he would make it his career.

Jack earned his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Western Ontario, and began his career teaching chemistry and physics at the newly opened Bawating Collegiate and Vocational School in 1962.

In 1967, Jack purchased his first tugboat, ROCKET, and used it primarily for diving and salvage expeditions with family and friends. Five years later Jack retired from teaching to devote his attention to the full time hobby of tug boating, and the birth of Purvis Marine. The next two years saw the company making its first over lake tow, when Purvis Marine was contracted to tow the automobile ferry St. Joseph Islander to Kingston, ON, followed by the first large dredging contract, with the dredging of the Pine Street Marina.

With each passing year the fleet grew. From 1984 to present Jack has purchased tugboats, workboats, barges and freighters: including the firefighting tug AVENGER IV, deep sea salvage tug ANGLIAN LADY, crane barge PML SALVAGER, crane vessel YANKCANUCK, PML IRONMASTER barge, to name a few. The largest expansion in the company’s history came in 1994 when Purvis Marine acquired all of the marine assets from A.B. McLean & Sons Ltd.

Jack purchased the Government Wharf from the Department of Transport which continues to serve as the company’s headquarters. He purchased properties and buildings on the waterfront which are now home to local businesses and organizations, including the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Museum. In 2005 a 13 acre parcel of land was purchased and the Sault Multimodal Terminal Inc. was constructed on the site.

Jack Purvis has received many awards and accolades for his accomplishments including; the Chamber of Commerce “Outstanding Business Achievement Award”, Marine Man of the Year, the Sault Ste. Mare Medal of Merit, the Paul Dalseg Community Achievement Award, the Skipper Manzzutti Award for Business Achievement, and in 2015 Jack was inducted into the Great Lake Marine Hall of Fame. A fitting tribute to a man who brought a dream to a very successful reality.
