Toronto Stock Exchange welcomes foundation for virtual market open event in celebration of National Indigenous Peoples Day

June 21, 2021 (TORONTO) - In honour of National Indigenous Peoples Day, TMX Group today announced that it has donated $50,000 to Anishnawbe Health Foundation towards the development of a new Indigenous Community Health Centre in Toronto. The building will be the first project completed on the site of a new Indigenous Community Hub in the city.

"As we celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day in Canada, it is important that we recognize that historical injustices and persistent social-economic barriers continue to have negative effects on the health and well-being of Indigenous Peoples across the country," said John McKenzie, Chief Executive Officer, TMX Group. "TMX is proud to contribute to the tremendous efforts of the Anishnawbe Health Foundation to create a new Health Centre designed to provide crucial programs and services to improve the health of First Nations, Inuit and Métis in Toronto. As we look to the future, we remain committed to improving Indigenous relations and making a positive impact in the communities in which we live and work."

Established in the early 1980s, Anishnawbe Health Toronto combines western medicine and Traditional Healing to offer primary healthcare services, mental health programs, and child, youth, and family care to a population of 70,000 Indigenous people living in Toronto. The new Anishnawbe Health Toronto facility, which breaks ground today, will be located in Toronto's West Don Lands, a neighbourhood in the city's downtown east end.

"With the TMX Group's generous support, we have achieved nearly 95% of our $10 million campaign goal to support the new centre and the reclamation of Traditional Healing practices," said Andre Morriseau, Chair, Anishnawbe Health Foundation. "We deeply appreciate this investment in Indigenous health and wellness."

Anishnawbe Health Foundation is accepting donations online, by telephone at 416-920-2605 (ext. 555), or by mail to Anishnawbe Health Foundation, 225 Queen Street East, Toronto, Ontario M5A 1S4.
