 Louise-Ann (nee Ogden) was born in Montreal, moved to Kingston ON then to Prince Albert SK, where she was raised. She attended Connaught and King George Public Schools, then Prince Albert Technical High School. She earned business certificates at New Brunswick Community College in Moncton and Algonquin College in Ottawa.  In Canada she worked in sales, book keeping and office management.

Maurice was born and raised in Prince Albert SK where he attended Queen Mary School then Riverside Collegiate. He attended college at the Saskatchewan Technical Institute in Moose Jaw, where he graduated in Electronics Engineering Technology. He also holds diplomas in business management. He worked as a surveyor and draughtsman for the Saskatchewan Department of Highways, a Bombardier/Corporal in the Militia (army reserve) and a telecommunication regulatory manager for the Canadian Government.

We were married in Prince Albert in 1971, and have lived in Winnipeg MB, Trois Rivieres PQ, Saskatoon SK, Moncton NB and Ottawa ON. We have two children, Kyle, who holds a degree in journalism from Carleton University and Michelle, who holds a masters of science in biology from McGill University. Please see the Links tab for their web sites. Both of our children are married and each have given us a grandson, Samuel, (2002) and Grey (2009).

In 1993 we moved to Singapore, where Maurice worked as a telecommunication lobbyist for Motorola and then ENRON. Louise-Ann worked as a counsellor at the Canadian Education Centre, associated with the Canadian High Commission.
 
While working in Singapore, we bought a 48-foot trawler yacht, aboard which we lived. When we retired in 2002 we sailed around SE Asia and Australasia for about five years. When we sold the trawler, due to illness, we returned to Canada and bought a 39-foot Winnebago “land yacht”, aboard which we explored much of Canada and the USA. Nomads no more, we now live at Oliver BC, Canada.
