Wesley Mussio grew up in Trail, British Columbia and graduated from J.L. Crowe Senior Secondary in 1982. During the high school years, Wes Mussio played at the highest level in soccer and participated in the Trail Smoke Eater program for hockey. He also aspired in track and field particularly at the 400 meter distance.


After a one-year session at Selkirk College in Castlegar, Wesley Mussio moved to the University of British Columbia (“UBC”) into the Faculty of Forestry. He ended up graduating in 1986 with a BSF (Bachelor of Science in Forestry) but before then, Wes Mussio was heavily involved in student politics being the House President at Place Vanier-Robson House for a year and being the President of Gage Towers for two years.


Rather than immediately going into law school, Wesley Mussio decided to pursue a Registered Professional Forester (“RPF”) designation and took a year off to work for the Ministry of Forests in Williams Lake and then West Fraser Mills in Quesnel. He then entered the Faculty of Law at UBC and eventually graduated in 1990. Wes Mussio then took another six months out of law to finish off the necessary two-year training for becoming an RPF. After a backpacking venture to Europe, he then started articles at Ferguson Gifford, and complete articles in November 1991 becoming a lawyer.


While at UBC, Wes Mussio was heavily involved in athletic programs. He played three years of Super League Hockey in the top division at UBC while also playing Super League Soccer in the top division. While in the interior working in forestry, Wes Mussio played soccer in the interior men’s league and during the winter months, played commercial league in the Cariboo for hockey.


Since becoming a lawyer in 1991, Wes Mussio began working in the area of ICBC injury claims, principally defending claims on behalf of ICBC. He worked as an ICBC defence lawyer for a little over a decade and then decided to move to the plaintiff only side to help injured parties. His first stint at plaintiff only work was at Murphy Battista but in 2011, Wesley Mussio decided to join forces with Eric Goodman and open Mussio Law Group and then eventually Mussio Goodman. The new law firm has quickly developed into one of the leaders in personal injury litigation as well as estate litigation with 7 locations across Canada. Mr. Mussio is the managing partner of the firm.


In 1993, Wesley Mussio and Russell Mussio opened up Backroad Mapbooks and the company has now developed into one and largest national mapping company in Canada. As Wes Mussio has a passion for the outdoors, this company is a perfect fit as he gets to travel the outdoors in guise of research projects.


Wes Mussio has been heavily involved in the administration of ice hockey in the Province of British Columbia. He was the Vice President and President of the Burnaby Winter Club for four years, sat on multiple committees at the Pacific Coast Amateur Hockey Association and has owned two junior hockey teams. Most recently, he purchased the Nanaimo Clippers of the BCHL in November 2017 and remains the sole owner of the team.


Wesley Mussio also has inroads into lacrosse. He is the current owner of the Nanaimo Timberman, a Senior B lacrosse team.


Wesley Mussio married Penny Stainton in 1993 and they have two lovely children, Madison Mussio and Devon Mussio.


Madison lives in London attending Birkbeck University for a Bachelors of Law degree. Previously, she obtained a Bachelor of Business degree in hospitality and tourism from Les Roches in Switzerland graduating with distinction.


Devon Mussio graduated from St. Georges High School in 2017. He is currently pursuing his professional hockey dream at the University of Alaska (Anchorage) in the NCAA Division 1 after a five year career in the BCHL.
