Board of Directors

Our Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors which includes members from the medical, scientific, academic and business communities. These dynamic leaders ensure that we maintain the highest standards with regards to ethics and best accounting practices. The Board oversees and approves the Foundation’s budget, fundraising goals and the granting of funds raised to support the priorities of the MUHC.

These dedicated volunteers play a key role in helping our Foundation ensure that the MUHC provides the best care for life.
