Get Involved

Mackenzie Health Foundation invites career professionals and community leaders to come together to build new relationships as Emerging Leaders and help us provide the highest quality of hospital care.

By joining this exclusive group, you’ll be the first to know about upcoming events and behind-the-scenes experiences created especially for Emerging Leaders like you.

A commitment of $1,000 to $5,000 a year for five years will help fund a modern Operating Suite at the new Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital. Emerging Leaders who invest $10,000 or more will be recognized on a special feature plaque.

I am an Emerging Leader because I want to give back to the community that has given me so much already, in the only way that I know, by helping others.
