Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX): CVV
VANCOUVER, Aug. 13, 2012 /CNW/ - CanAlaska Uranium Ltd. (TSX: CVV) ("CanAlaska" or the "Company") at the request of the CEO has restructured its management contracts and administration and corporate development team. The company has moved to contract secretarial services and removed the position of business manager and of VP Corporate Development. Mr Emil Fung, who held the latter position remains as a board member of the Company. Ms Dianne Szigety of Publico Services Corp. has been hired as Corporate Secretary. Ms Szigety has over 25 years' experience in the securities industry and since 1994 has offered regulatory filing solutions and legal assistant consulting services to both public and private companies. Ms. Szigety was recently admitted as a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (FCIS) and she is a member of the Canadian Society of Corporate Secretaries. Previously, Ms. Szigety was a senior legal assistant in the corporate securities department of Campney & Murphy, Barristers & Solicitors, in Vancouver, BC.

President and CEO Peter Dasler and VP Exploration Dr Karl Schimann are continuing with the Company on reduced contracts. The company has granted 150,000 incentive stock options to purchase common shares at a price of $0.25 per share to officers of the Company, for a five years, in accordance with its Stock Option Plan.
President Peter Dasler commented: "Emil made many valuable contributions to the company, and strongly supported our Asian financing efforts. The slowdown in uranium exploration interest since Fukushima has unfortunately caused the company to focus to reduce its overall expenditures and find new alternatives to approaching the Asian market. Frances also provided strong service to the company, and is handing over a well organized portfolio to Dianne. We wish her best wishes in her new business ventures."
