New Centre First of its Kind in Canada

TORONTO - On Friday, February 6, 2009, York University's Osgoode Hall Law School and Schulich School of Business will launch the Jay and Barbara Hennick Centre for Business and Law, a unique interdisciplinary centre of excellence that will promote and develop joint business and law scholarship, education and outreach, and contribute to Canada's success in today's global economy.

The Hennick Centre has been made possible by a generous gift of $3 million from Jay and Barbara Hennick. Jay Hennick is Founder and CEO of FirstService Corporation, one of North America's largest globally-diversified real estate service companies, and Barbara Hennick is a chartered accountant. Hennick, who was named Canada's CEO of the year by Canadian Business magazine in 2001, and his wife contribute annually to a variety of causes through The Barbara & Jay Hennick Family Foundation.

The inauguration of the Hennick Centre will take place in conjunction with the Osgoode and Schulich LLB/MBA Students' Association annual conference, which will feature the Honourable Jim Flaherty, Minister of Finance and Minister Responsible for the Greater Toronto Area, as the keynote speaker. He will be introduced by former Ontario Premier Mike Harris.
