The St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation (SLSMC) recently announced the appointment of James Wilson to its board for a three-year term, as the representative for the steel and iron ore industries, a position previously held by David Motherhill.

Mr. Wilson currently serves as General Manager, Raw Materials, for ArcelorMittal Dofasco Inc. and has over 40 years’ experience within the iron ore and steel industries, spanning roles in research, production and purchasing. A graduate of McMaster University, his career encompasses a diverse range of progressively more senior assignments.  He has served as a Director and President of Wabush Resources Inc. and as a Director for both the Arnaud Railway and the Wabush Lake Railway.  Mr. Wilson is also a past Director of Quebec Cartier Mines (which became ArcelorMittal Mines Canada.)

Terence Bowles, President and CEO of the SLSMC, welcomed the appointment of Mr. Wilson. “The iron ore and steel industries are vital to the Seaway’s sustainability, and collectively account for a third of our total cargo volume,” he said.
