F. Alexander Jackson, J.D.


My family and I live and work in Minnedosa, Manitoba, Canada, a rural community of approximately 3,500 people in southwestern Manitoba, serving the surrounding agricultural community.

I was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba where I attended Grant Park High School. I attended the University of Manitoba, School of Music, from 1973 to 1977, where I majored in pipe organ, harpsichord and musicology, which is the study of how music was performed when it was written.

After University, I spent several years in the financial world, including the Divisional Office of the Bank of Montreal, in Winnipeg, where I was a manager in the Special Debts Department. In 1984, I returned to the University of Manitoba, graduating from the Faculty of Law with a Bachelor of Laws degree in 1987.

After law school, I moved to Minnedosa, Manitoba, where I articled as a lawyer. I was called to the Manitoba Bar in 1988. I joined the firm of Paterson, Bass, Dubois in 1988. That firm went through some personnel changes and I was admitted as a senior partner under the firm name of Paterson, Bass, Ross, Jackson. I was the resident partner in Neepawa, Manitoba. In 1991, I returned to Minnedosa, where I practiced law in association with the firm of Sims & Company until may of 2003. In May, 2003, I moved my practice to my own offices in Minnedosa and I now carry on the general practice of law under the firm name of

ALEXANDER JACKSON LAW OFFICE.

The emphasis of my practice is in the areas of real estate law, estate law, wills and powers of attorney law, corporate law, and business law. I also take family law and criminal law cases as time permits, as well as legal aid cases on a limited basis.


MISSION STATEMENT


I have been a member of the Canadian Bar Association, Manitoba Bar Association, and Western Manitoba Bar Association since 1987.

Over the years, I have spoken to various clubs, associations and community groups on a variety of legal topics, with emphasis on Real Estate, Estates, and Wills issues. I am always happy to speak to community groups and others about various aspects of the law. From time to time I submit articles on legal topics for publication. A selection of articles and brochures are available on this website.

Over the years, I have held a number of positions in community, provincial and national organizations. In the 1970s, I was on the Board of Directors of the Winnipeg Chapter of the Royal Canadian College of Organists. In the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, I served on the Board of Directors of the Neepawa Chamber of Commerce and Kaleidoscope Concerts. I have been involved in Freemasonry since 1981 in Winnipeg (Fort Osborne Lodge), Neepawa, and I was Master of Prince of Wales Lodge No. 14, G.R.M., AF & AM, in Minnedosa for 2004 and for 2005. I am currently a Past Master of Prince of Wales Lodge No. 14, G.R.M., AF & AM in Minnedosa. I was District Deputy Grand Master for the 5th Masonic District, Grand Lodge of Manitoba, AF & AM in 2008/2009. I am currently a Past District Deputy Grand Master for the 5th Masonic District, Grand Lodge of Manitoba, AF & AM. I am a member of the Past Masters’ Association of Manitoba.

I have also, over the years, held memberships in both the Federal and Provincial Progressive Conservative Riding Associations, as well as memberships in the Minnedosa Chamber of Commerce, Ducks Unlimited, the Canadian Wildlife Federation, Sleep-Wake Disorders Canada, Canadian Automobile Association (CAA Manitoba) and a number of other organizations. I was formerly Chair of the Yellowhead Regional Employment Skills & Services Inc. in Minnedosa.

The Alexander Jackson Law Office is a member of the Minnedosa Chamber of Commerce.

In the past, I have held a variety of posts as a church organist and have performed as an organist and harpsichordist in concert and on radio. I still enjoy music, although I rarely perform publicly now. In 2007 I assisted as organist at St. Mark’s Anglican Church one Sunday per month, in order to permit the parish to try some services with Anglican Chant. I am interested in computers, law office automation, reading, scale modeling, philosophy, medieval history and art.

With our family, we are members of St. Mark’s Anglican Church in Minnedosa, where I formerly served on the Vestry committee and my wife and I assist in other ministries from time to time. In 2005 I was a Lay Reader in training at St. Mark’s. I presently am active on human rights and international justice issues and am a member of Amnesty International. I endeavor to provide as much support as I can to people wrongfully convicted anywhere in the world and speak out on issues of human rights and international justice at every opportunity.
