Portrait of Roger Burden

Born in Parry Sound and raised in Carling and later in McDougall. Graduated Parry Sound High School in 1968 after which I moved to Oshawa where I worked as a computer logic technician, moving back to Parry Sound in 1975. After having spent most of my adult life in the automotive business I am now retired.

A life member in the Kinsmen Club of Parry Sound and an active member of the Goodfellows Masonic Lodge. Active member, secretary and past president of Waubuno Shrine Club. Active member of Parry Sound Golf & Country Club where I served 12 years (2000-2013) on the Board of Directors as Secretary-Treasurer, Vice President and President, Founding member and past president of the Parry Sound Sportsmen Hockey League, past board member of The Friends.

I believe Parry Sound has been moving in the right direction during the past few years and I am anxious and excited for our future. I am anxious to see Parry Sound grow, increase our tax base to enable us to realize all of the dreams and wishes of our people - swimming pool/wellness complex, better streets, more people to support our hardworking small business owners/operators on a year-round basis.

With the Town of Parry Sound being the business hub of the West Parry Sound District we need to lead the region into the future, lets get at it!

Councillor Burden will serve on the following Boards and Committees for the 2019-22 term:  Community Emergency Program Committee, Fence Viewing Committee, Parry Sound Area Industrial Park Board, Parry Sound District Social Services Administration Board (DSSAB), Downtown Parry Sound Business Association (DBA) and the Scholarship Committee.
