Letter from the CEO

Changing People’s Lives with The Princess Margaret Home Lottery.

I can hardly believe it has been over 25 years since the Princess Margaret Home Lottery launched. It was one of the first charitable lotteries in the country and has since experienced tremendous growth, raising funds for Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, one of the top 5 cancer research centres in the world.

Over the years, with the help of your generosity and support, we have literally changed people’s lives. And this year will be no different.

As we head into this landmark year, I am excited to share our bold new vision for the future. We’re enabling Future Care Now by raising funds that accelerate cancer research, education and clinical care benefiting patients not only at The Princess Margaret but across Canada and around the world.

With nearly 1 in 2 Canadians expected to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, we need to continue to fund world-leading research and offer real hope for patients living with cancer.

Right now, there are many unknowns but the one thing that has been a constant source of inspiration is how our community continues to rally. Everyone is doing their part and we are here to do ours.

By purchasing a Princess Margaret Home Lottery ticket, you not only have the chance to win some truly amazing prizes, you are helping us to advance on our vision, to Conquer Cancer in our Lifetime.

Thank you for your incredible support and good luck!

Michael Burns, President & CEO
