Mr. Ed Pypker


Ed is the chair of the Paideia Centre.

Ed grew up in the Toronto area. Studying under Dr. Runner and Dr. Spykman as a young college student sparked the desire to integrate his faith with daily life. He has a BA in Economics from York University.

For the past 25 years Ed has worked in labour relations and human resources. His first twenty two years was spent working in a variety of positions with the Christian Labour Association of Canada. More recently, he has been a director of labour relations with a large Canadian food manufacturer.

Ed and his wife, Irene, have four children; one is graduated from Redeemer College and one is married. Ed and Irene have been home-educating their children through high school with Ed actively involved in various community home education activities including choirs and orchestra as well leading wilderness canoe trips for home-educated teens.

When not working or involved with his local church or other activities, Ed can be found recharging his batteries by down-hill skiing, wind surfing, or riding his new mountain bike.
