Doug Morneau was born and raised in Burnaby – New Westminster (suburbs of Vancouver) Canada. His father worked for the City as a laborer while his mom stayed at home to look after him and his brother, and taught private swimming lessons.
At a young age, Doug had a keen interest in business, reading business books, and learning as much as he could about the Vancouver Stock Market (now the TSX-V Venture Exchange). His grandfather was a business role model, and at a young age encouraged Doug to follow the market and begin investing in the seed stock of new ventures (then $0.15) he was going to list on the stock exchange. So began the pleasure of capital gains.
In his early teens, Doug worked several jobs and saved all he could to buy his first car and begin to travel. Doug had dreams to be successful like his Grandfather who retired at 36. After retiring he, owned and sold several more businesses, and brought a gold and silver mines into production.
While in school, Doug established his first sole proprietor business followed by several more. After graduating early with honors, Doug started an apprenticeship with the goal to set up a manufacturing company. During this time he completed the Canadian Securities Course – CSC.
The entrepreneurial bug had been planted in Doug, and began to grow and produce a harvest.
