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
