2021 Annual General Meeting

The Associates and Young Associates of the I. H. Asper School of Business gathered on December 6, 2021 for the University of Manitoba Business School Foundation’s 39th Annual General Meeting. Attendees joined both in-person at the Fairmont Winnipeg for a gala dinner and online via webcast. Special guest Donald K. Johnson (former President of Burns Fry and Vice Chair of BMO Nesbitt Burns) provided a keynote address, sharing his wisdom and advice with those in attendance.

“My friend Donald K. Johnson exemplifies the best of business, entrepreneurial, and philanthropic achievement in Canada. Early in his notable investment banking career Don commenced not only practicing but also promoting philanthropy among successful business leaders. Over many years his example of generosity and fundraising leadership have benefited many Canadian non-profit institutions engaged in the arts and culture, education, and health care. Thank you DK!”

– Arni Thorsteinson (Chair, IDEA Committee)
