McGill's impact

McGill is proud of its place in Canada and Montreal, and proud of our contributions to the communities of which we are part. This special anniversary year is an opportunity for a community to reflect on its past and recognize achievements that have had a lasting legacy.

Here are just a few stories of McGillians who through their efforts in various sectors and fields have made a difference to our city, our country – and our world.
