Mike Costigan, President

Mike is originally from Sudbury and graduated from University of Waterloo, with a Bachelor of Environmental Studies degree and had an apprenticeship with a Waterloo based construction company. He spent 10 years working in construction, until accepting another career option at the University of Western Ontario’s Faculty of Education. He was then offered a teaching position at Cardinal Leger Secondary School in Brampton where he taught Construction and Woodworking for 27 years, retiring in June of 2021.

Mike and his wife Patti bought his grandparent’s cottage located in Eagles Nest Bay in the fall of 1999. As teachers they were able to spend numerous summers with their two kids Julianne and Graem on the lake. The renovation process has been a continual journey for them.

His interest in getting involved with the LMAA was fostered by his parents who have been involved since the association’s inception in 1993. His father Mike Senior was the President for 16 years, while his mother Pat continues to be involved with the Education Committee. 

Athletics and carpentry/woodworking are his main interests, and in his spare time enjoys golf, cycling, hiking, and renovating the cottage.

He looks forward to continuing the great work that the LMAA has done in the past, advocating for the stewardship of Lake Manitou for future generations to enjoy.
