Sid Vander Meulen

Sid Vander Meulen is an active member of Edmonton's real estate industry and has served his community over the years in various capacities. He is a winner of the 2007 Quality of Life REALTOR® Award recognizing industry members who have contributed time, expertise and compassion to making their community a better place to live.

Vander Meulen was born in 1937 and immigrated to Canada in March of 1957. In 1958 he attempted to obtain his real estate license but was denied on the account of not being an Albertan resident for more than six months. Vander Meulen was granted Canadian citizenship in 1962 and worked for Norman Realty Ltd. in the mid-1970s. In 1978, he became self-employed when he started his own agency known as ADA Realty.

Vander Meulen has been a member of the Edmonton Real Estate Board since 1975 and served as its director from 1992 until 1999. He has served as a member or chairman on numerous commitees. In 1996, he successfully completed a course on real estate arbitration and professional standards and served as the commitee chair later that year. The Edmonton Real Estate Board awarded him lifetime membership in 1999. Three years later he continued his active involvement in the industry by serving as the president of the Edmonton REALTORS® Charitable Foundation.

Vander Meulen has been actively involved in his community for several decades. He has served as a board member and president of the Christian Senior Citizens Homes Society of Northern Alberta and was the treasurer for the Edmonton Society for Christian Education. Throughout the 1980s he was actively involved in politics serving as the chief financial officer for the Edmonton-Beverly Progressive Conservative Association. From 2001 until 2005 he worked with children as part of a community outreach program and served lunches in several schools throughout the city.
