Nov 17, 2023

CALGARY – November 17, 2023 – The Alberta Securities Commission (ASC) is seeking public assistance to locate Ronald James Aitkens of Calgary, Alberta. A warrant for Aitkens’ arrest was issued after he failed to appear for sentencing before the Alberta Court of Justice on Monday, November 6, 2023. The scheduled sentencing was in relation to charges Aitkens had been found guilty of in July 2020, namely, one count each of fraud and making false or misleading statements in an offering memorandum, contrary to the Alberta Securities Act. 

The ASC has reason to believe that Aitkens may have left Canada earlier this month. He is believed to be driving a grey 2015 Ford F-150 truck with licence plate number CKV0534.
