Paul Albrechtsen appointed to Order of Canada

Namesake of the St. Boniface Hospital Albrechtsen Research Centre awarded the highest level of distinction in Canada

Winnipeg entrepreneur and founder of transport giant Paul’s Hauling, Paul Albrechtsen, has been appointed to the Order of Canada.

When a heart attack many years ago required him to receive care at St. Boniface Hospital, Albrechtsen saw an opportunity to make a difference. A visionary and philanthropist, Albrechtsen has dedicated $7 million to St. Boniface Hospital Foundation in support of pioneering medical research. His cumulative contributions make him the most significant donor in St. Boniface Hospital’s nearly 150-year history. In recognition of his generosity and leadership, St. Boniface Hospital’s Research Centre was renamed the St. Boniface Hospital Albrechtsen Research Centre in 2015.

“I believe the future of health care lies in medical research where we can find innovative, new ideas to solve age-old problems,” Albrechtsen said.

Albrechtsen’s contributions to St. Boniface Hospital’s world-renowned research centre will continue to make a difference for generations to come. Support from Albrechtsen and our generous donor community allows St. Boniface Hospital to continue conducting groundbreaking research and clinical trials on campus, while providing life-changing patient care.

You can be a part of building a healthier future for all Manitobans.
Donate today to support research and patient care at St. Boniface Hospital

Whiteshell Snowmobile clubLooking for a Fulfilling Opportunity?WE WANT YOU! We all know that snowmobile trails don’t just happen. It takes resources and many volunteer hours to maintain 13,000 kilometers of snowmobile trails in the areas of signing, grooming, equipment maintenance, shelter upkeep, etc. Why volunteer? People volunteer for many different reasons. For some, it’s to help others and give back to the community and club. For others, it is to build self-confidence, gain personal growth and learn new skills. We know it’s important to get outside during winter and enjoy all that Manitoba has to offer. Giving your time lends you a sense of well-being and connectedness to others and certainly fights boredom. It allows you to share your talents, abilities, and experiences while at the same time learning new skills from others. And don’t forget volunteers can have fun and enjoy themselves by making new friends. To volunteer please contact Snoman at or your local club today! ... See MoreSee Less
