Peter Munk dreamed of
repaying his debt to Canada

In Honour of Peter Munk (1927 – 2018)

The passing of Peter Munk is not only our loss. It is a loss for all of Canada.

Peter’s legacy of giving to Toronto General Hospital – more than $177 million – is extraordinary. Last September, Peter and Melanie Munk announced a historic gift of $100 million to the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre. This was the largest-ever single gift to a Canadian hospital. Their philanthropy will continue to transform the future of heart health for years to come.

Peter always said, “My family came to Canada with no money and no skills, just a plea to take us in. Ever since then, my dream has always been to repay my debt to Canada.”

We will forever be grateful for Peter’s remarkable generosity, extraordinary vision and leadership.
