Mike Nagata

Mike Nagata passed away on January 19, 2022 at the age of 94. Mike was born in Vancouver and was one of many brothers and sisters. Mike is survived by his sister and nieces and nephews.

After studying engineering at UofT, Mike joined CSA. During his long career he worked in various product groups and in several management roles. He had been the Lab Manager and was Director of the Lab when he retired. Mike retired in 1999 after 47 years of service.

Mike was involved in the design of the ’85 building, which was known to many of us as the “New Building”. After retirement he continued to use his skills doing audits for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) Lab Accreditation Program, even auditing CSA!

Mike kept in touch with many of his former colleagues and is remembered as a great guy to talk to and work with.

The family has posted an obituary in the Toronto Star. Visit Mike’s Obituary.

A private funeral is planned.
