CP announces millions in funding raised for pediatric hospitals


Canadian Pacific this week announced that the CP Women's Open golf tournament has helped raise more than CA$2.8 million over the past two years for the British Columbia Children’s Hospital Foundation.

The money will go toward the hospital's purchase of cardiac ultrasound machines and other equipment, as well as research that supports the catheterization program, CP officials said in a press release.

An additional CA$557,000 will go to Kamloops Royal Inland Hospital for renovations and equipment for a new cardiac wing.

The CP Women’s Open tournament has not been held since before the pandemic, but has continued to raise money in the meantime. Fundraising efforts since CP assumed title sponsorship have totaled more than CA$16.85 million.

"We are grateful for the community's ongoing participation and support, and look forward to bringing the CPWO back once it is safe to do so," said CP President and CEO Keith Creel.
