Owen was born and raised in Midland, a third generation resident, his grandfather arriving from Collingwood during the Depression to work at the old Aberdeen elevator on Georgian Bay. Owen graduated in 1991 from the University of Toronto with a Bachelor of Commerce Degree, specializing in finance and economics. After working in the mutual fund industry, with AGF Management Limited, for three years, he articled with accounting firms in Barrie and Collingwood. He obtained his CA designation in 1997 while working in Collingwood.
Since returning to Midland in 1996, Owen has been actively involved in community activities including being a former member (and treasurer for five years) of the Rotary Club of Midland, and as a former board member of the Midland Branch of St. John Ambulance, Midland Golf & Country Club and Huronia Community Foundation.
As a professional, Owen is a member of the Chartered Professional Accountants of Ontario (formerly the ICAO) and the Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (formerly the CICA), the latter being the standards setters for accounting and auditing in Canada.
Owen is married to Maureen, who is a wealth advisor for a Canadian bank, and they have three children aged thirty-one, twenty-six, and twenty-four. He enjoys traveling with his entire family, golf, hockey, stock markets (having passed the Canadian Securities course), music, reading and crossfit.
