Jim Pattison

Vancouver Magazine - - Cover Story -


Liv­ing Le­gend At 89, Jim Pattison con­tin­ues to be acor­po­rate power bro­ker in B.C., with as­sets in ad­ver­tis­ing, gro­cery stores, lum­ber and coal ex­ports, but it’s his role as a deep-pock­eted phi­lan­thropist that’s build­ing on his rep­u­ta­tion as a busi­ness ti­tan. In May, Pattison do­nated $75 mil­lion to the St. Paul’s Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion, the largest amount ever in Canada by a pri­vate donor to amed­i­cal fa­cil­ity. With his big-ticket do­na­tions, from North Van­cou­ver’s emer­gency centre to Sur­rey’s mega-hos­pi­tal, Pattison is quickly con­vert­ing his largesse into a le­gacy.
