Dennis Erker believes he is the luckiest man in the city for the bountiful opportunities the community has given him. His philanthropy and tireless fundraising efforts have raised Dennis to the top as a community builder.

Since beginning his life insurance career in 1966, and  co-founding the Fairley Erker Advisory Group, he has helped spearhead one of Canada’s premier estate  planning and group insurance brokerage groups. While this success  earned him widespread respect within the world of business, his greater mission is to give back to the community.

Dennis’ leadership skills helped raise millions for the Stollery Children’s Hospital and Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute. He is a past president of the Edmonton Eskimos, former governor of the Canadian Football League, past chairman of the 1994 World Wheelchair Basketball Championship, and honourary member of the Citadel Theatre.

Dennis has been involved with many community initiatives over the years;  contributing to both start-up and ongoing operations, including Sorrentino’s  Compassion House, Kids Kottage, Art Gallery of Alberta, Edmonton Symphony, Lois Hole Hospital, Prostate Cancer Research, and Stars.

As the honourary colonel for the Loyal Edmonton Regiment, Dennis is  leading fundraising efforts for Valour Place, a facility that will provide  ‘hope away from home’ for injured soldiers, veterans, and their families.

For Dennis, there is no better personal investment. “The more you give  back the more you get back,” he says.
