$1 Million Donation to the Abilities Centre announced in Memory of Late Former 
Minister of Finance, the Honourable James Flaherty 
TORONTO, April 15, 2014 /CNW/ - Today Canada's five largest banks jointly 
announced gifts of $200,000 each to the Abilities Centre in Whitby, ON, in 
remembrance of the late former Minister of Finance the Honourable James 
Flaherty. The donations from BMO Financial Group, CIBC, RBC, Scotiabank and TD 
Bank Group will total $1 million. 
In addition to his tremendous contributions to Canada's economic well-being, 
Mr. Flaherty was a tireless champion of people living with disabilities. He 
showed his support through several decisions as finance minister, gave his 
time to associated causes, and encouraged a more inclusive society through his 
actions and his words. 
This donation will support the Abilities Centre in its efforts to enrich 
quality of life for people of all ages and abilities. Opened in 2012, it is a 
fully accessible recreational and community facility, offering sports, arts,
