: Stewart McKelvey Congratulates John Chisholm

February 21, 2012

As a long standing client and friend of the firm, we’re proud to congratulate John Chisholm on recently receiving an honorary Doctor of Laws from St. Francis Xavier University.

A celebrated local philanthropist with deep roots in the construction industry, John took over the family business, Nova Construction Co. Ltd., in the 1970s. Coincidentally, his first construction job was digging the foundation of the Angus L. MacDonald library, located on the campus of St. Francis Xavier University.

John’s many notable achievements include building Antigonish Mall and constructing sections of both the Trans-Canada Highway and the Cobequid Pass. In recognition of his outstanding contributions to the mining industry, he was awarded the Mining Society of Nova Scotia’s highest award, the Mining Society Medal.
