Arthur Labatt

Arthur Labatt

Arthur Sackville Labatt, OC (born May 11, 1934) is a great-grandson of John Labatt, founder of the Labatt brewery. He is currently the chancellor of the University of Western Ontario (UWO) in London, Ontario, Canada.

Born in London, Labatt studied business at UWO for one year in 1953, and also briefly studied at McGill University where he joined the Kappa Alpha Society, however never graduating from either university. He was expected to take over Labatt but by the time he was an adult, the business had been sold outside of the family. Instead, he became an accountant and later worked in the securities industry and investment management. He founded Trimark Investment Management, a mutual fund company, in 1981.

Labatt became an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1996. He succeeded Eleanor Clitheroe as chancellor of UWO on October 28, 2004.

On February 7, 2007, the Labatt family donated $30 million to Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children—the largest donation in the hospital's history—in order to establish the Labatt Family Heart Centre, which will provide care for children with congenital heart disease; and to support the Brain Tumour Research Centre, which the Labatt family helped establish with a previous donation.
