Memorable Manitobans: Christodoulos K. Christodoulides (1936-2000)

Businessman, community activist.

Born at Tymbou, Cyprus on 21 November 1936, he joined the Hellenic Association of Cypriot Fighters to fight the British occupation of Cyprus in 1955, until their expulsion in 1958. He had a successful career in Cyprus until 1974, when he and his family immigrated to Canada due to the Turkish invasion of Cyprus. In Canada, Christodoulos studied at the University of Winnipeg and worked in real estate and service, owning a Mac’s Convenience franchise until 1999. He served as the president of the Cypriot association of Manitoba for over a decade and as Vice-President of the Cypriot Federation of Canada.

He died at Winnipeg on 29 February 2000.
