In loving memory ofRaymond Chang

Raymond Chang Raymond Chang Raymond Chang Raymond Chang

Chang- Raymond 65, a Jamaican-born Chinese-Canadian, passed away Sunday July 27,2014 months after undergoing a bone-marrow transplant from his brother.

He was a giant on Bay St. and a giant in the world of philanthropy, but he will likely be remembered most for his immense heart.
Chang’s oversight as the CEO of CI Financial was highly respected in the business world, but his philanthropy was what stood out most. He is survived by his wife, Donette Chin-Loy, and two children.
The 2014 recipient of the Order of Canada, who had received the Order of Jamaica three years earlier, was affectionately known as the “student” chancellor at Ryerson University until his tenure ended in 2012. He was also the namesake behind the G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education at the university.
“In some sense he was bigger than life itself because of his generosity, his good spirits and his humour,” said Levy. “The loss is not only huge to the university, but to the entire country. You could never say enough about what he accomplished and his humility and love of life,” he said, adding that students were always on Chang’s mind.

It is wonderful to know that there will come a time when a person will work hard to achieve great things and live to see the several generations after benefitting from such.
