What’s in the Toolbox of a Top 5 Cancer Research Centre?
A Message from Dr. Mary Gospodarowicz and Dr. Ben Neel

The tools available to see cancer more clearly and treat it more effectively
have become more plentiful and more sophisticated. X-ray technology,
microscopes, scalpels, and single beam radiation machines have been super-
ceded by MRI, computed tomography, laser capture microscopy, surgical
robots and shaped-beam radiation.

Learning how to leverage these tools and refine them for our specific pur-
poses in cancer medicine has required that we expand our workforce in
certain areas. We now employ physicists, bioinformatics specialists, engineers
and medicinal chemists, as well as commercialization specialists who focus
solely on speeding new technology and discoveries into production so they
can help patients sooner.

There is a spirit of collaboration and a sense of urgency among our staff that
only a critical mission like conquering cancer in our lifetime can ignite. Here
are a few developments that illustrate the creativity of our scientists and
clinicians in the use of new tools and technology:

w   The puzzle of why certain lung cancer patients responded well to chemo-
    therapy in addition to surgery and others did not was solved by uncovering
    a 3-gene ‘signature’ which was discovered and validated through sophisti-
    cated computer analysis of patient data from over 27 studies worldwide
w   Robotic equipment is being used to screen thousands of off-patent drugs
    for their effectiveness against cancer cells. This ‘drug recycling’ approach
    has identified several promising candidates, and it greatly shortens the
    time by which a drug can be helping patients
w   Cancerous tumours often spread to the bone, and this ‘infected’ bone
    must be removed and ‘re-built’ using bone tissue harvested from another
    part of the patient’s body. CT imaging is very effective for surgeons in
    preparing for this re-constructive phase of the surgery

Our scientists have not only successfully adapted promising tools and
technology to cancer research and treatment, but they have created entirely
new tools.

We are highly dependent on our generous donors to maintain the high quality toolbox needed by our innovative
scientists, clinicians and surgeons. Thank you for appreciating this need for state-of-the-art tools. We feel confident
that we are making excellent use of the funds you entrust to us.

In Our Lifetime
It may seem like we’ve been fighting this fight forever. But we haven’t.
There was a time, not long ago, when cancer was a death sentence. And the treatment
was dreaded almost as much as the disease. We’ve seen that change in our lifetime, at
The Princess Margaret.
We’ve seen the entire process of cancer care forever altered. We’ve seen radical mastectomies
become lumpectomies. We’ve seen the precision of image-guided therapies spare more healthy
tissue. We’ve seen undreamed-of advances at the cellular level and revolutionary work in healing
beyond the body.
All in our lifetime. All at The Princess Margaret.
We’ve seen a provincial cancer hospital become one of the world’s top 5 cancer research
centres. We’ve seen our people grow beyond a thousand. We’ve seen leading researchers, from all
over the world, leave their homes to come here. Because this is where they believe the fight will be
finished. In our lifetime.
Yes, we are still losing people to cancer. But imagine if Terry Fox were diagnosed today. He would
be much less likely to lose his leg and he could live to continue the fight. That’s how far we’ve
come, and that’s how fast.
It may seem like we’ll be fighting this fight forever. But we won’t. Because we’re closing in.
We have the momentum. We have the talent. And we have the passion. This is the front line. We
are Canada’s cancer warriors. But we can’t do it alone.
The world needs to hear The Princess Margaret message. So share it at every opportunity
with anyone who will listen.
It’s a simple message, really. But it’s a message of incredible power: we are conquering
cancer at Canada’s cancer research centre, The Princess Margaret. In our lifetime.

‘Passion Capital’ Leads the Way to a Record Year
A Message from the President & CEO and the Chairman of the Foundation Board

Our heart leads us and drives us to support the causes we believe in. The passion that begins in our hearts and ignites
our spirit of generosity can accomplish amazing things. A new term for this collective spirit has emerged, and we believe
that ‘passion capital’ is what has enabled The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation to raise over $73 million (net) for
The Princess Margaret.

It is obvious from meeting and speaking to many of you—annual donors, walkers, riders, lottery ticket buyers, and
event organizers—that conquering cancer is a cause that generates deep emotions and motivates people to dig
deeper and work harder to raise the funds needed for breakthrough research and compassionate care. We are very
grateful that you have continued your commitment to help CONQUER CANCER IN OUR LIFETIME this year.

                                                                                      We all want to leave a legacy to

Our appreciation also goes out to the Dr. Geoffrey R. Conway Memorial Foundation for its generous gift of
$6.5 million that will be used to create a new world-class chemotherapy centre now being constructed on the
fourth floor of the hospital and due to open to patients in late 2010.

The Gattuso-Slaight gift of $12.5 million to create The Gattuso Rapid Diagnostic Centre has generated a huge
groundswell of appreciation from the breast cancer community. This is a wonderful example of how our hospital is
always setting new standards of patient care.

Other highlights include:
w   $1.3 million from Gordon Tozer in support of head and neck cancer research
w $1 million from Molly and David Bloom to establish the Molly and David Bloom Chair in Multiple Myeloma
    Research, the first myeloma chair in Canada


2    2009 Report to Our Donors
w   The campaign leading up to our Spotlight Tribute secured donations and commitments of over $700,000.
    This year’s Tribute celebrated the world-leading efforts of The Robert and Maggie Bras and Family New Drug
    Development Program in developing targeted and effective cancer therapies
w   $640,000 from AstraZeneca Canada Inc. to support lung cancer research and breast cancer research

One of the year’s greatest achievements for the Foundation was The Ride to Conquer Cancer—an event that is already
Canada’s most successful cycling fundraiser. Three years of careful planning and preparation paid off with 2,850 partici-
pants riding in the inaugural event and raising an incredible $14.8 million for cancer research. The Ride was so success-
ful that 2009 will see the event run in three additional Canadian cities—Vancouver, Calgary and Montreal.

The Weekend to End Breast Cancer (WEBC) walkers got a little soggy this past year, but it seems that nothing can
dampen the spirits of 4,757 participants determined to bring an end to a horrible disease that has impacted their lives
in some way. They raised an amazing $13.5 million. This year we announced that funds from future WEBC events will
be directed to research projects focused on gynecological cancers in addition to breast cancer, plus there will now be
a one-day walk so more walkers can participate in this life changing event.

After conducting extensive market research with lottery ticket buyers, the Foundation re-vamped and re-launched
its fall lottery program. Branded the Welcome Home Sweepstakes, the lottery offered up an incredible selection
of real estate in a variety of prestigious locations. Lynda Reeves and her House & Home team lent their support by
designing and decorating the Oakville home. All of the prizes resonated well, as the lottery sold out in a tough
economic climate.

Our Community Giving team continues to engage and steward a growing base of more than 60,000 supporters
through our annual giving and tribute programs which raised a total of $6.3 million. We continued to build our
monthly giving program, and evolved our Leadership Giving Society into The Princess Margaret’s Inner Circle.

The Special Events team supported more than 100 community events last year, including galas, golf tournaments,
runs, walks, clothing sales, and more. The 2008 Brazilian Ball was a highlight of the year, raising the seed funding for
the de Souza Institute and for cancer research. More than 1,000 walkers raised $690,000 in the Toronto Marathon 5K;
Joe’s Team triathlon participants raised $470,000 for head and neck translational research; and Harry’s Spring Run-off
runners raised $336,000 for prostate cancer. In all, more than 30,000 Special Event supporters raised $5.2 million for
The Princess Margaret.

We were delighted to welcome Farsad Kiani to our Board this year. Mr. Kiani’s background and leadership in medi-
cal innovation and his extensive work with a wide variety of philanthropic organizations will be of great benefit to our
Foundation. The combined breadth and depth of expertise accessible to the Foundation through our Board mem-
bers is a great source of strength and wisdom. An excellent example of that wisdom is the work of our Investment
Committee. Their counsel regarding the Foundation’s investment portfolio during a period of extreme capital market
turmoil allowed us to emerge from the storm in relatively good condition. Further information on our investment
portfolio is provided at the end of the Financials section of this report.

We hope you enjoy reading the stories in this report describing how the funds you donated or helped to raise are
being put to use by our dedicated doctors, scientists and other PMH staff. They are stories we would not be able to
tell without your support and your passion.

Training our Body to Recognize and Destroy Tumour Cells
Harnessing the body’s immune system to fight cancer is an
intuitively appealing and tantalizing idea. An anti-cancer
vaccine is certainly the ‘holy grail’, and scientists at The
Princess Margaret have a collective understanding of the
human immune system that is getting us ever closer.

Dr. Tak Mak, Director of The Campbell Family Institute for
Breast Cancer Research at The Princess Margaret, is known
around the world as the first scientist to clone an impor-
tant receptor found on white blood cells called T cells.
Identifying this receptor opened up the field of immunol-
ogy because this structure is responsible for determining
the kind of foreign molecules that are the target of the
immune response. Together with his Co-Director,
Dr. Pamela Ohashi, he recently published scientific find-
ings that showed the addition of interleukin-7 with a viral
vaccine boosted the body’s immunity to tumours.

The human immune system is an amazing defense system, always on guard to destroy foreign bacteria and viruses.
Even better, it can be further fortified to defend against life-threatening viruses that it may not recognize or have the
natural defenses to fight. Because of this we now have vaccinations against diseases such as small pox and tetanus.

Immunotherapy efforts are essentially organized along two fronts: development of vaccines to fight viruses that are
known to cause cancer (for example, human papillomavirus and hepatitis B and C), or identifying approaches to fire
up the immune system to fight an existing malignancy.

Because a tumour begins as a normal organ cell with a genetic aberration that allows it to grow and reproduce
without natural controls, the immune system does not see the tumour as ‘foreign’.

Dr. Ohashi’s lab is focused on helping the immune system make this distinction. She explains, “It is important that our
bodies respond to viruses which are foreign invaders, and not respond to our own tissues. When this process breaks
down, people can develop diseases such as diabetes. Our goal is to understand what prevents our immune system
from attacking our own tissues, and use this knowledge to direct the immune system to destroy any tumours that may
arise in our body.”


    The Campbell Family is Focused on the Benefits of Long-Term Investing
              Financial planners typically recommend that their clients adopt a strategy of ‘long-term investing’—
               focusing not on the daily ups and downs of global stock markets, but on a long-term positive outcome.
               The Campbell family has adopted this strategy in its relationship with The Princess Margaret.

             Their support over the course of their association with this cancer centre now totals $67.5 million, rep-
    resenting the largest cumulative private gift to cancer research in Canada. Audrey Campbell began this legacy
    of support to basic science research back in 2004, with the creation of The Campbell Family Institute for Breast
    Cancer Research, supporting the work of the esteemed Dr. Tak Mak who is now dedicating his scientific career to
    the eradication of breast cancer. Audrey’s daughters, Linda, Gaye and Susan, are continuing their mother’s dedi-
    cation to cancer research, and their generosity is now supporting research into a broader range of cancers.

    The Campbell family’s long-term commitment to basic science research is benefiting cancer patients and their
    families today and will be paying dividends well into the future.


4     2009 Report to Our Donors
Enabling Better Outcomes in Cancer Surgery
The Princess Margaret has very successfully pioneered the use of image-guided technology both in radiation therapy
and, more recently, in surgical oncology. Because tumours shift and change in size over time, real-time CT (computed
tomography) images allow radiation therapists to apply radiation much more precisely, sparing more healthy tissue.
All of the hospital’s 17 radiation treatment rooms are now equipped with CT imaging technology.

Similarly, surgeons tasked with the responsibility of removing tumours have a tremendous advantage when they can
see a tumour in relation to surrounding organs, critical nerves, and blood vessels.

While previous technology pictured a 2-dimensional cross-section of an affected area, the new technology generates
1,024 images at once and provides a real-time 3-dimensional picture of the patient’s interior. These images are used
to plan and prepare for surgery, and they can also be updated throughout the surgery, confirming whether the entire
tumour has been removed or whether more malignant tissue remains.

Dr. Jonathan Irish, Head of Surgical Oncology for The Princess Margaret, works closely with Dr. David Jaffray, Head
of Radiation Physics, to determine how best to integrate the new technology in the surgical operating rooms of the
cancer centre.

He points out that, while the new technology is beneficial for all surgeons, it is particularly advantageous for new
surgeons who haven’t had 20 years to develop their ‘sixth sense’ about the positioning of each artery and nerve. This
kind of technology will reduce surgical complications and give young surgeons more confidence.

    Generous Gift from the Gattuso-Slaight Family is Paradigm Shifting
                            Emmanuelle Gattuso is a tenacious and visionary woman who makes things happen. Her
                            prolific career in media production and public relations includes a long list of positions
                            and accomplishments including Press Attaché for the Commissioner of Official Languages,
                            Senior Vice-President of Public Affairs for The Canadian Association of Broadcasters and
                            producer for Sleepless Nights and The Vancouver Show.

                        After being treated herself for breast cancer in 2003, she became a strong advocate for
                        breast cancer patients and has worked with Dr. David McCready, Head of The Princess
    Margaret’s Breast Cancer Program, to support research into new screening, diagnostic and treatment programs.

    In 2009, she and her husband, media entrepreneur Allan Slaight, made a generous and trailblazing gift of $12.5
    million to create The Gattuso Rapid Diagnostic Centre. They have also committed to lead a fundraising campaign
    to secure the remaining $12.5 million to complete the Centre which will be a model for other cancer centres in
    Canada and beyond.




A Confirmed Diagnosis and Treatment Plan in a Single Day
Thanks to ‘seed money’ from The Weekend to End Breast Cancer, The Princess Margaret was able to purchase a
piece of equipment and test a new approach to the care of patients coming to the hospital with symptoms of breast
cancer. Dr. David McCready, Head of the Breast Cancer
Program, was concerned that patients were waiting an aver-
age of 37 days for a confirmed diagnosis and treatment plan.

The equipment, called an XPress Rapid Tissue Processor,
enables pathologists to analyze breast tissue specimens
acquired through a core biopsy within several hours. This
means that a patient arriving at the hospital between 8 and
10 in the morning can have a physical examination, mammo-
gram, ultrasound and biopsy completed, and then meet with
a member of the surgical oncology team in the afternoon for
a report on the findings. If indeed the tumour is malignant,
the treatment plan can be provided on the same day.

Since inception, over 550 patients have experienced this
new approach.

The experimental phase of the program has completed, and
thanks to a generous donation, it is being expanded and
double the number of patients (750 per year) will now benefit
from this rapid diagnostic procedure. By 2013, additional
funding will allow the program to diagnose 3,000 patients
per year.

The Princess Margaret is hoping to partner with nearby hos-
pitals as well as other regional cancer centres to ensure suf-
ficient capacity for follow-up surgical and radiation treatment
and to enable a broad base of patients to take advantage of
this rapid diagnostic service.

Understanding What Fuels a Tumour
The past ten years
have been a fertile
period for scientists
in terms of under-
standing differ-
ences between
how normal and
tumour cells grow
and proliferate.
Tumour cells are
very often growing
in a hypoxic or low
oxygen environ-
ment. This is partly
due to the fact that
the blood vessels
established to
supply blood to the
tumour are leaky
and not as efficient
as the system of
vessels and capil-
laries established in
healthy tissue.                                        Visit www.pmhf.ca/onlinereport for videos and more information

Like all cells,
tumour cells need
fuel and, in fact, they are mega consumers of glucose. This large consumption of glucose is one of the ways tumours
adapt to the low oxygen environment.

Dr. Brad Wouters recently returned to Canada after establishing a thriving radiation biology research program in
the Netherlands. He is leading the Hypoxia and Microenvironment Program at The Princess Margaret and his lab is
focused on understanding and then exploiting the vulnerabilities of tumour microenvironments (like the low oxygen
environment) for improved cancer detection and treatment.

Dr. Michael Milosevic is a radiation oncologist and one of the three directors of the STTARR Innovation Centre which
is focused on radiation therapy research. He specializes in the treatment of gynecological and prostate cancers, and is
currently leading several patient studies focused on understanding how abnormal tumour blood flow and metabolism
influence the response to treatments like radiation therapy. One study, for example, is combining the use of a drug
that blocks the formation of new blood vessels with radiation treatment.

In his patient studies, Dr. Milosevic is using special MRI and CT scans to measure and map out blood flow to tumours
and to observe how leaky the blood flow is. PET scans and a new approach called bioluminescence imaging, which
can provide valuable information about tumour metabolism, are also promising tools his team is looking to employ.

Drs. Wouters and Milosevic are sharing their knowledge of tumour metabolism and collaborating to identify
better ways to treat patients. They represent the synergy that exists between laboratory and clinical teams at
The Princess Margaret.

de Souza Institute Surpasses Five-Year Goals in its First Year
Anna Maria de Souza, who passed away in September of 2007,
was a legend of Canadian philanthropy, and even as she herself
was being treated for cancer at The Princess Margaret, she was
planning her annual Brazilian Ball to raise funds for the hospital.
She wanted the 2008 Ball to pay tribute to the extraordinary oncol-
ogy nurses who support patients and their families as they deal
with the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, and to also raise funds
for cancer research at The Campbell Family Institute.

Together with her beloved husband, Ivan, she also planted a seed
that has already germinated and borne fruit for oncology nurses
in Ontario. The funds raised by the Brazilian Ball for oncology nurs-
ing laid the groundwork for the de Souza Institute, an organization
dedicated to helping meet the increasing demand for more nurses
trained in oncology.

The mandate of the de Souza Institute is to work in concert with
academic and accreditation bodies to develop and deliver a broad
range of oncology-related training as well as mentorship programs
for nurses across the province.

The inaugural director for the institute is Dr. Mary Jane Esplen,
a clinician, professor, author and scientist, well-regarded for her work in psychosocial oncology, women’s health and
palliative care. Dr. Esplen has put in place an ambitious plan for the de Souza Institute and has already over-achieved
in many areas. Just some of the accomplishments of the first six months include:

w    14 Ontario regional cancer centres received a total of $1.4 million from the de Souza Institute for information
     technology and physical space for nurses to study
w    31 oncology nurses in Ontario who are enrolled in graduate-level programs received de Souza fellowship awards to
     advance their career development in clinical practice, research and nursing leadership
w Over 150 oncology nurses either enrolled in de Souza study groups or received funding to prepare for the 2009
     Canadian Nurses Association national certification exam in oncology or hospice palliative care.


     Ontario Government Provides $15 Million for Oncology Nursing Centre
     Anna Maria de Souza’s wish to recognize and support oncology nurses led to a meeting of her husband, Ivan de
     Souza, Foundation CEO Paul Alofs and representatives from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.

     The idea of a centre of excellence to develop and provide education and mentorship programs for oncology
     nurses across the province resonated so well with the goals of Cancer Care Ontario and the Ministry of Health
     that the Ontario Government announced in May 2008 that it would provide $15 million over five years to support
     this centre of nursing excellence, which is headquartered at The Princess Margaret.

     While the survival rate for most types of cancers has been increasing steadily, the incidence of the disease also
     continues to grow, and the oncology nursing force has not kept pace.

     “Oncology nurses play a vital role for cancer patients and their families throughout the cancer care continuum,”
     said Terrence Sullivan, President and CEO, Cancer Care Ontario. “Initiatives like the de Souza Institute are impor-
     tant to help make sure that Ontario nurses have access to ongoing educational support and professional devel-
     opment to play an expanding role in meeting the needs of the growing cancer patient population.”

  “The Biobank Was a Project That Really Resonated With Us”
                    With his wife, Candace, on the Board of Directors for The Princess Margaret Hospital
                    Foundation, Eric Innes knew about the work going on at this world-leading cancer centre. When
                    he and Candace decided that they wanted to do something significant for the hospital, they
                    chose to support the purchase of needed equipment for the centre’s BioBank as it was central
                    to the hospital’s strategic plan and relevant to their own goals.

                    The hospital identified three pieces of equipment needed for the BioBank to store and manage
                    patient bio-specimens and corresponding patient data.

  The goal was $750,000. The Innes family made the leadership donation, and invited a group of friends to join
  them by pledging additional financial support. Reaching this goal and making this major gift to The Princess
  Margaret gave Eric great pride as he fought his own tough battle with pancreatic cancer. Eric’s passion for life,
  commitment to his family, unwavering optimism and strength of character will be cherished with his memory.




Going Digital (and High Definition!)
‘Going digital’ has been a trend with just about everything for the past two decades, and the use of digital imaging by
the BioBank team is helping to extend the many assets of our bank to the larger scientific community.

As the BioBank staff process donated tissues from our patients either for immediate use by our researchers or for
storage, they are now able to use high-throughput digital imaging (HTDI) equipment to take one or more ‘snapshots’
of the tissue as it would appear under a powerful microscope. Together with other cataloguing information stored
along with the snapshot, the team has created a searchable Web site that is being used to train pathologists and to
show scientists (wherever they may be located in the world) the various samples of tissue stored in our BioBank.

Along with the informatics platform that is being enhanced for the BioBank, digital imaging is facilitating important
collaboration with other academic centres. This kind of resource and knowledge sharing is greatly accelerating
cancer research.

The funds required to purchase the
digital imaging equipment were
donated by Foundation supporters,
and put to use almost immediately!

Use of digital imaging in the BioBank
has many other benefits. “Once we
have tissue images digitized and stored
in a database, we can perform different
kinds of analysis that help us identify
common patterns among groups of
specimens,” explains Dr. Patricia Shaw,
Medical Director of the BioBank.

Digital imaging also helps with quality
control in the BioBank. Once a patholo-
gist has reviewed an image, they are
able to document the usability and                      Visit www.pmhf.ca/onlinereport for videos and more information

Helping Scientists Pinpoint Culprit Genes
Cancer is a disease of the human genome. It starts with a mutation that you might inherit, or it could develop as a
result of exposure to a carcinogenic compound such as tobacco.

Not all mutations lead to cancer in all people, which is a large part of the mystery of the disease. But scientists have
isolated certain gene mutations that are shared by many cancer patients. Identifying these gene mutations, some-
times referred to as gene ‘signatures’ or ‘biomarkers’, is already leading to better screening, diagnosis and treatment
of the disease.

The Human Genome Project has resulted in an explosion in the amount of information available about our genes.
With a few exceptions, every cell in the body contains a full set of identical genes. But only a small percentage of
these genes are turned on or ‘expressed’, and it is this subset of ‘expressed’ genes that gives each cell unique proper-
ties. Further, genes are not like simple on/off lights. They are more like lights controlled by a dimmer switch where the
light can be high or low intensity.

To identify, classify, and visually represent such a vast amount of genetic information is a considerable challenge, and
this is where microarrays and microarray technology come in to play. A microarray is a tool for analyzing how genes
are expressed.

The Microarray Centre, co-directed by senior scientists Drs. Linda Penn and Jim Woodgett, has been in operation for
almost ten years analyzing tissue samples collected in our clinics and being studied by our scientists. “The progress
in those ten years has been phenomenal,” explains Dr. Penn. “When the centre opened, scientists would have to
provide at least 10 million cells in order to do the microarray analysis. Today, the instruments are much more sensitive,
and the same analysis can be done with just a single cell.”

The Microarray Centre now has an international reputation and has served over 700 laboratories in 27 different countries.
Last year alone, over 250 different research projects were supported by the Centre from researchers around the world.

Special Events
Sexy … Sleek … Sumptuous
The fundraisers behind The Gerry and Nancy Pencer Brain Trust deserve top
marks for creativity and knowing how to execute on a theme. There’s been
Viva Las Vegas, Wild Wild West, Circus Circus, Bell Bottom Bash and many
others, and this year they wanted their guests to get in touch with the sultry
and mysterious side of themselves with Noir.

Patrons were encouraged to indulge themselves at the seductive silent auc-
tion, unleash their inner rock star on the dance floor, and seduce their taste
buds with the sumptuous food provided. On the live auction block was a
luxury vacation in India, a Los Angeles Escape, and a Spyder 300 Motorcycle!

An energetic crowd of over 800 people partied the night away at The Liberty
Grand, raising critical funding for research and patient care at The Gerry &
Nancy Pencer Brain Tumor Centre at Princess Margaret Hospital.




It’s Amazing What You Can Do When You Have Friends For Life!
Carol Olsen, like all cancer survivors, knows that each day of life is precious, and she has made it a priority each year
to thank the hospital that gave her another chance at life. She and her husband, Jeff, and 12 of her friends organize
an annual gala that has now raised close to $700,000 in support of bone marrow transplant programs at The Princess
Margaret.

                                 “A bone marrow transplant saved my life—twice,” says Carol, “and that has allowed Jeff
                                 and I to spend more time together and with our many friends. Our event each year is an
                                 important way of recognizing how blessed we are and how grateful to the doctors and
                                 staff at The Princess Margaret.”

                                 For 10 years now, the Friends for Life Gala has been bringing together over 500 people
                                 aged 30 to 60 to enjoy music, have fun and celebrate life.




aWEARness…Shopping for a Great Cause
In May of 2008, a new event was launched in support of The Princess Margaret. Elana
Waldman, a cancer survivor herself, teamed up with fundraising specialist Michelle Levy,
and they put to work their fashion sense, their contact lists, their keen instinct on how
women like to spend their time, and their passion for conquering cancer. The event
provided over 200 guests with a unique shopping experience where they could purchase
designer fashions at greatly discounted prices.

Ladies, men’s and children’s clothing, accessories, sportswear and bridal wear were all
generously donated by designers, manufacturers, and retailers. The labels included Ralph
Lauren, Vera Wang, Michael Kors, Strellson, Zegna, Nicole Miller, Pink Tartan, Theory and
Badgley Mishka. Clothing that wasn’t sold was auctioned on eBay Canada’s charity site.

The event raised over $200,000 for ovarian cancer research… proof that these two ladies
know that an afternoon of food and shopping at a venue like The Liberty Grand is a great
way to bring a group of women together!

and 4 countries for a first-time event is not an easy feat. Helping
them reach out to over 100,000 donors and raise $14.8 million is
even more impressive. But the Foundation’s experience running
large events in combination with our important cause, which is
close to the hearts of so many, made it happen. That is why The
Ride to Conquer Cancer, in its inaugural year, surpassed all other
cycling events held in Canada to become the most successful bike
ride fundraiser.

The riders appreciated the exceptional planning that resulted in
plenty of good food and drinks, hot showers to wash away the toil
and sweat, liquid ‘spirits’ to celebrate the physical accomplish-
ment, accommodation for everyone at the end of the first day, and a festive return train ride from Niagara Falls.

The volunteer support and participation of so many hospital staff made the event very special. So special in fact that
857 people who participated in 2008 signed up on the spot for the 2009 Ride!




The Princess Margaret Creed Showcased in New Television Commercials
In 2008, Y&R, a leading advertising agency providing pro bono services to the Foundation, created a creed (see
page 1 of this report) that captured in words both the vision that drives the people who work at The Princess Margaret
and the innovative spirit that has permeated this world-leading cancer research centre for over 50 years.

                                           This past year, the agency was busy imagining how those words could
                                           be captured visually, and the result is a powerful series of 30- 60- and
                                           90-second videos that do great justice to the words of the creed.

                                           Doctors, nurses, researchers and other staff, volunteers, plus patients and
                                           their caregivers contributed their time, their stories, and their deep feelings
                                           of appreciation.

                                           To see the 90-second advertisement, visit www.pmhf.ca. We invite you to
                                           share this inspiring message by sending the link to your friends and family.




The Weekend to End Breast Cancer Raises $13.5 Million
The fundraising success of The Weekend to End Breast Cancer is 100 percent due to
the passion and commitment of the walkers. For six years now, they have asked their
family and friends for support; organized bake sales, pub nights, pancake breakfasts,
garage sales, raffles and auctions; as well as campaigned outside stores and malls
asking for donations. Walkers have also grown and shaped the event in so many
positive ways by creating great costumes and team names, sharing their personal
stories, and providing suggestions for how the event can be bolder and better.

Those suggestions included the idea of a one-day walk in addition to the two-day
event, and the request that walkers have the option to fundraise for gynecological
cancers, in addition to breast cancer. The Foundation listened and is implementing
these suggestions in the 2009 Weekend to End Breast Cancer.

                                                                            The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation    17

18   2009 Report to Our Donors
 A Partner in the Healthcare Community
 As a company with deep roots in Canada, Imperial Oil is committed to making investments that build strong and
 healthy communities. Their gift of $500,000 will support the hospital’s Mesothelioma Research Program. The funds
 will be used to support the development of new approaches to mesothelioma treatment and the translation of
 basic science discoveries into the clinic.

 Mesothelioma is a disease most often caused by exposure to asbestos, and PMH is a world leader in the early
 detection and treatment of the disease. The ‘mesothelium’ is a protective lining that covers most of the body’s
 internal organs, but the disease is most frequently found in the pleura—the outer lining of the lungs and internal
 chest wall.

 The expertise PMH has developed in the use of computed tomography (CT) imaging is being used to see and
 diagnose mesothelioma at an early stage. A screening program
 for workers exposed to asbestos launched in early 2005 and over
 900 people have now been screened using CT technology.

 A comprehensive biobank of mesothelioma tumours has been
 created and is being used to test innovative new treatment
 options which include the development of new drugs that target
 specific molecules within mesothelioma cells, ‘whole lung
 radiation’ prior to surgery to prevent the cancer from spreading,
 and therapy that boosts the body’s own immune system to attack
 the mesothelioma.

     Community Giving
     The breadth of support in the community for The Princess Margaret is truly remarkable. It is demonstrated every-
     day as ordinary people make extraordinary gifts through our Community Giving programs. This past year, we
     had over 40,000 donors support the hospital through our annual giving and monthly giving programs. Significant
                                                 annual support was provided by 800-plus donors belonging to
                                                 Princess Margaret’s Inner Circle – the newly redesigned Leadership
                                                 Giving Society. Many more thousands of people chose to pay tribute
                                                 to someone special through the Tribute Memorial and Wedding and
                                                 Holiday Card programs. Combined, over $6.3 million was raised this
                                                 year by Community Giving.

                                                            Each gift, no matter how large or small, is essential in helping bridge
                                                            the gap between what the government funds for healthcare and
                                                            what the hospital needs and aspires to deliver to our patients. We
                                                            thank our Community Giving donors for sharing our vision, and
                                                            combining their ‘passion capital’ with their financial capital for the
                                                            benefit of our patients.
     Held annually, our Donor Appreciation Tea lets donors learn more about the work of The Princess Margaret, and receive our thanks for their
     generous, sustained support. We couldn’t do our work without you. Thank you!

JCB Grant Society Members
Membership in the JCB Grant Society is offered to donors who have included The Princess Margaret Hospital
Foundation in their will or have made a future or life income gift. These special friends of the Foundation have made
the fight to conquer cancer in our lifetime part of their own personal legacy.

The JCB Grant Society is named after the distinguished Toronto professor of anatomy, Dr. J.C. Boileau Grant, the
author of Grant’s Atlas of Anatomy. Princess Margaret Hospital has a special connection with Dr. Grant. His widow,
Anne Catriona Robertson, left us a bequest of the Atlas when she died in 1982. With the annual royalty payments,
The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation has created the JCB Grant Chair in Oncologic Pathology, a $2.2 million
endowed chair, as well as a major named endowment fund.

The Grant family’s example is important to us: they have left an important legacy with a creative gift, and they have
improved our ability to conduct leading-edge cancer research. Through the JCB Grant Society, we pay tribute both to
the Grant family and to each donor who has confirmed a planned gift to The Princess Margaret.

 She Never Stopped Reminding her Patients to Floss, Floss, Floss!
                                Dr. Lucie Tuch kept her dental patients informed of her cancer journey through a
                                series of letters filled with her concern for them, her courage and determination to
                                fight the cancer, and, most of all, her delightful sense of humour. She was devoted
                                to her dental practice and had difficulty giving it up—even to her sister—when she
                                was forced to focus on her health and cancer treatment.

                                She adored the CBC, and talked about her great propensity for remembering the
                                “little ditties” accompanying the old radio advertisements like Brylcreem, Ivory
                                Snow and Dodd’s Little Kidney Pills.

                                Lucie left instructions in her Will for her Executor (her husband Egon) to make
                                charitable gifts on her behalf. After consulting with the Foundation to discuss
                                an appropriate and meaningful way to pay tribute to his wonderful wife, Egon
                                Homburger chose to make a generous gift in her name to the dental clinic of
                                Princess Margaret Hospital. The gift was used to purchase a digital panoramic
                                dental X-ray machine which allows the clinic to operate much more efficiently, with
                                less processing chemistry (less pollution), and to save on physical storage space.

New Chair Appointments
The Kirchmann Family Chair in Neuro-Oncology Research
Dr. Warren Mason is the medical director of Princess Margaret’s multidisciplinary treatment centre
for brain tumours—the largest centre for this purpose in Canada. In addition to his clinical and
research activities at The Princess Margaret, he is also the chair of the brain disease site of the
National Cancer Institute of Canada Clinical Trials Group.

Dr. Mason graduated in medicine from the University of Toronto, and completed residences in
Internal Medicine and Neurology at the University of Toronto and McGill University. He received
fellowship training in neuro-oncology at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York.

The focus of Dr. Mason’s current research is the development of medical therapies for primary brain tumours.



The Kevin and Sandra Sullivan Chair in Surgical Oncology
                    Dr. Jonathan Irish is the Chief of Surgical Oncology for PMH, Head of Surgical Oncology for
                    Cancer Care Ontario and Professor of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at the University
                    of Toronto. He is a multi-talented leader and mentor at the hospital focusing on head and neck
                    oncology and surgical reconstruction of the head and neck region. He completed his residency
                    training at UCLA and the University of Toronto.

                     Current research priorities for Dr. Irish include the emerging Guided Therapy Program (GTx)
                     that will be the immediate focus for the Kevin and Sandra Sullivan Chair in Surgical Oncology.
                     New image-guided technology is being installed and tested in the surgical oncology operating
theatres of University Health Network, and this equipment holds great promise for sparing more healthy tissue in the
removal of tumours leading to quicker recovery.



The Love Chair in Prostate Cancer Prevention Research
Dr. Neil Fleshner is Head of the Genitourinary Cancer Site Group for PMH and Associate Professor at
the University of Toronto. He is an exceptional surgeon and clinical scientist, and his practice focuses
on the prevention and surgical treatment of urologic malignancy, with an emphasis on prostate
cancer. Dr. Fleshner earned his MPH degree from the School of Public Health at Columbia University,
and completed his oncology training at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York.

Dr. Fleshner oversees a basic science research laboratory and is conducting two randomized trials
testing the efficacy of micronutrients in preventing prostate cancer.



  The Molly and David Bloom Chair in Multiple Myeloma Research
  Molly and David Bloom have donated $1 million to establish the Molly and David Bloom Chair in Multiple
  Myeloma Research. Every day 7 more Canadians are diagnosed with multiple myeloma, an incurable blood
  cancer. This Chair will lead research into better screening and early detection methods, and help move promising
  new drugs from the laboratory to needy patients as quickly as possible.

  A search is currently being conducted, and an appointment for this Chair is expected to be announced in the
  fall of 2009.

                           AUDITORS' REPORT




To the Members of
The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation

We have audited the balance sheet of The Princess Margaret Hospital
Foundation as at March 31, 2009 and the statement of revenue, expenses and
changes in fund balances for the year then ended. These financial statements are
the responsibility of the Foundation's management. Our responsibility is to
express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.

We conducted our audit in accordance with Canadian generally accepted auditing
standards. Those standards require that we plan and perform an audit to obtain
reasonable assurance whether the financial statements are free of material
misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting
the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes
assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by
management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation.

In our opinion, these financial statements present fairly, in all material respects,
the financial position of the Foundation as at March 31, 2009 and the results of its
operations and its cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with Canadian
generally accepted accounting principles.           As required by the Canada
Corporations Act, we report that, in our opinion, these principles have been
applied on a basis consistent with that of the preceding year.

1. PURPOSE OF THE ORGANIZATION
The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation [the "Foundation"] is incorporated under the Canada
Corporations Act. The Foundation was established to solicit, receive and maintain funds and to
apply these funds to improve and enhance cancer research, professional education and patient care
activities provided by the Ontario Cancer Institute/Princess Margaret Hospital ["OCI/PMH"],
which are part of the University Health Network ["UHN"].

The Foundation is a public foundation registered under the Income Tax Act (Canada) [the "Act"]
and, as such, is exempt from income taxes and able to issue donation receipts for income tax
purposes, under Registration Number 88900 7597 RR 0001.

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
The financial statements of the Foundation have been prepared in accordance with Canadian
generally accepted accounting principles. The following summary of significant accounting
policies is set forth to facilitate the understanding of these financial statements:

Fund accounting
In order to ensure observance of the limitations and restrictions placed on the use of resources
available to the Foundation, the accounts of the Foundation are maintained in accordance with the
principles of fund accounting. Accordingly, resources are classified for accounting and reporting
purposes into funds. These funds are held in accordance with the objectives specified by the
donors or in accordance with directives issued by the Board of Directors [the "Board"]. Transfers
between the funds are made when it is considered appropriate and authorized by the Board. To
meet these objectives of financial reporting and stewardship over assets, certain interfund transfers
are necessary to ensure the appropriate allocation of assets and liabilities to the respective funds.
These interfund transfers are recorded in the statement of revenue, expenses and changes in fund
balances.

For financial reporting purposes, the accounts have been classified into the following funds:

[a] General Fund

    The General Fund accounts for the Foundation's general fundraising, granting and
    administrative activities. The General Fund reports unrestricted resources available for
    immediate purposes.

[b] Restricted Fund

    The Restricted Fund includes those funds where resources are to be used for an identified
    purpose as specified by the donor, as stipulated by the fundraising appeal or as determined by
    the Board.

[c] Endowment Fund

    The Endowment Fund includes those funds where either donor or internal restrictions require
    that the principal be maintained by the Foundation on a permanent basis.

Investments and investment income
The investments of the Foundation are recorded at market value. Publicly traded securities are
valued based on the latest bid prices. Pooled funds and other investments that are not publicly
traded are valued based on values reported by the external investment manager. Short-term
securities are valued based on cost plus accrued income, which approximates fair value.
Transactions are recorded on a settlement date basis and transaction costs are expensed as
incurred. Investment income, which consists of dividends, interest, distributions from pooled
funds, realized and unrealized gains and losses, is recorded as revenue in the statement of revenue,
expenses and changes in fund balances.

Investment income earned on Endowment Fund or Restricted Fund resources that must be spent
on donor-restricted activities is recognized as revenue of the Restricted Fund. Investment income
subject to donor restrictions stipulating that it be added to the principal amount of the endowment
is recognized as revenue of the Endowment Fund. Unrestricted investment income earned on
Endowment Fund, Restricted Fund and General Fund resources is recognized as revenue of the
General Fund.

Derivative financial instruments are marked to market, with gains and losses recognized in income
in the year in which the changes in market value occur.

Foreign currency translation
Revenue and expenses denominated in foreign currencies are translated into Canadian dollars at
the transaction date. Investments and other monetary items denominated in foreign currencies are
translated at the year-end rate.

Revenue recognition
Donations are recorded on a cash basis since pledges are not legally enforceable claims.

Donor-restricted donations for endowment purposes are recognized as revenue in the Endowment
Fund. Other donor-restricted donations are recognized as revenue of the Restricted Fund.
Unrestricted donations are recognized as revenue of the General Fund.

Lottery, Weekend to End Breast Cancer and other events revenue are recognized net of all related
expenses in the fiscal year in which the program is concluded. Revenue and expenses related to
lotteries for which prize draws take place and events that take place subsequent to the year end are
deferred.

Grant recognition
Grants are recognized when payable.

Contributed goods and services
Contributed capital assets that are transferred to UHN are recognized at their fair market value in
the financial statements. Other contributed goods and services are not recognized.

Capital assets
Purchased capital assets are recorded at cost. Donated capital assets are recorded at fair value at
the date of contribution.

Amortization is provided on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of the assets as
follows:

Office equipment                          10 years
Computer hardware and software             3 years

Financial instruments
The Foundation is subject to market, currency and interest rate price risks with respect to its
investments. To manage these risks, the Foundation has established a target mix of investment
types designated to achieve the optimum return with reasonable risk tolerance.

The Foundation has chosen to apply CICA 3861: Financial Instruments - Disclosure and
Presentation in place of CICA 3862: Financial Instruments - Disclosures and CICA 3863:
Financial Instruments - Presentation.

Employee future benefit plans
The Foundation participates in a multi-employer defined benefit pension plan and a non-pension
defined benefit plan sponsored by UHN. Contributions to these plans are expensed when due.

Use of estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with Canadian generally accepted
accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the
reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at
the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the
reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Changes in accounting policies
Effective April 1, 2008, the Foundation adopted the recommendations of CICA 1535: Capital
Disclosures, which require the disclosure of qualitative and quantitative information that enables
users of the financial statements to evaluate the Foundation's objectives, policies and processes for
managing capital. The adoption of these recommendations only required additional disclosures
which are provided in note 19.

Effective April 1, 2008, the Foundation adopted retroactively the changes to the recommendations
in CICA 4400: Financial Statement Presentation for Not-For-Profit Organizations that eliminate
the requirement to separately disclose the amount of fund balances invested in capital assets, that
were previously disclosed as a component of the General Fund. The Foundation has therefore
eliminated from the financial statements details about the amount of fund balances invested in
capital assets that were previously disclosed as a component of the General Fund and the
calculation of this amount.

Future changes in accounting policies
The CICA has issued revisions to the 4400 series and certain other sections to amend or improve
certain parts of the CICA Handbook that relate to not-for-profit organizations. With respect to
presentation, these changes include making the disclosure of fund balances invested in capital
assets optional, making CICA 1540: Cash Flow Statements applicable to not-for-profit
organizations; and requiring the reporting of revenues and expenses on a gross basis in the
statement of operations unless not required by other guidance. A new section, CICA 4470:
Disclosure of Allocated Expenses by Not-for-Profit Organizations, was included in the revisions
which requires certain disclosures when fundraising and general support expenses are allocated to
other functions. These changes in accounting policies must be adopted by years beginning on or
after January 1, 2009 with earlier adoption permitted.           Management has adopted the
recommendations related to the disclosure of fund balances invested in capital assets and is
assessing the impact of the other revisions. However, the impact will be limited to reclassification
of numbers in the statements and additional disclosures.

In February 2008, the Accounting Standards Board amended CICA 1000: Financial Statement
Concepts to clarify that assets not meeting the definition of an asset or the recognition criteria are
not permitted to be recognized on the balance sheet. The amendments are effective for financial
statements for fiscal years beginning on or after October 1, 2008. The Foundation is examining its
current approach to recognizing costs as assets and will implement these standards effective
April 1, 2009 retroactively with restatement of the prior year. The impact of implementing these
amendments on the financial statements is currently not known.

3. CASH
Cash consists primarily of amounts held for the Restricted Fund and net funds received in advance
related to lotteries and events to be held during the next fiscal year.

    Alternative investments include investments in hedge funds and private capital. The amounts
    invested in pooled funds have been allocated among the asset classes, based on the asset
    classes held by the pooled funds.

    In order to manage foreign currency exposure, the Foundation has entered into a forward
    foreign exchange contract. At March 31, 2009, one contract with a US bank allows the
    Foundation to sell US $40 million on April 6, 2009 at an exchange rate of 1.1887. The fair
    market value of this contract as at March 31, 2009 is a loss of $2,818.

[b] Investments are managed as two pools:

    •   Investments related to the Endowment Fund are invested as follows: short-term
        investments – 11% [2008 - 1%], bonds – 20% [2008 - nil], equities – 40% [2008 - 50%],
        alternative investments – 29% [2008 – 49%]. During the year, the Foundation reallocated
        the investments held for endowments to reflect the revised asset mix included in the
        updated Statement of Investment Policies and Goals.

         term to maturity of 8.9 years [2008 - 8.5 years].

    received and $2,850 was paid to the University Health Network who, jointly with Cancer

[b] Investment income is allocated among the funds based on the Foundation's capital
    preservation policy. This policy has the objective of protecting the real value of the
    endowments by limiting the amount of earned income available for spending and requiring
    the reinvestment of any income earned in excess of this limit. This preservation of capital is
    recorded as revenue of the Endowment Fund for externally endowed funds. For internally
    endowed funds, the preservation of capital is recorded as income of the General Fund and
    transferred to the Endowment Fund in the statement of revenue, expenses and changes in fund
    balances. In any year, should net investment income not be sufficient to fund the amount
    required for spending, the amount that is to be made available for spending is funded by a
    transfer from the Endowment Fund.

    Currently, the income available for spending is set at 4% of the market value of the
    Endowment Fund balances. An additional 1% is recorded in the General Fund to cover
    administrative costs.

    Investment income recorded in the Restricted Fund represents income earned on endowments
    where the donor has stipulated that the income must be used for restricted purposes or where
    there are agreements requiring income to be allocated to restricted funds.

[c] Gains and losses arising from the sale of donated investments that fund specific endowed or
    restricted funds are recorded in these funds.

[d] In 2009, investments held for endowments incurred an investment loss of $18,327. As a
    result, no investment income was available for preservation of capital, to make available for
    spending or to cover administrative costs. With respect to externally endowed funds, the
    funds available for spending of $3,724 were transferred from the Endowment Fund to the
    Restricted Fund and the amount available to cover administrative costs of $931 was

    transferred from the Endowment Fund to the General Fund. With respect to internally
    endowed funds, the funds available for spending of $694 were transferred from the
    Endowment Fund to the Restricted Fund. The amount available to cover administrative
    expense of $173 was transferred from the Endowment Fund to the General Fund and $3,438
    to cover investment losses was transferred from the Endowment Fund to the General Fund.

    In 2008, investments held for endowments incurred an investment loss of $415. As a result,
    no investment income was available for preservation of capital, to make available for
    spending or to cover administrative costs. With respect to externally endowed funds, the
    funds available for spending of $4,555 were transferred from the Endowment Fund to the
    Restricted Fund and the amount available to cover administrative costs of $910 was
    transferred from the Endowment Fund to the General Fund. With respect to internally
    endowed funds, the shortfall of funds available for spending of $810 was transferred from the
    Endowment Fund to the Restricted Fund and the amount available to cover administrative
    costs of $233 was transferred from the Endowment Fund to the General Fund.

[e] In 2009, the Board approved transfers totalling $862 from the General Fund to the
    Endowment Fund and $2,926 from the Restricted Fund to the Endowment Fund. The transfers
    relate to internally endowed bequests and changes in the designation of funds as directed by
    donors or the Board.

    In 2008, the Board approved transfers totalling $2,346 from the General Fund to the
    Endowment Fund and $34 to the Restricted Fund. These transfers relate to internally
    endowed bequests and changes in the designation of funds as directed by donors or the Board.

17. UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO GRADUATE STUDENT ENDOWMENT
During 1997, the Foundation negotiated an agreement in which a grant of $3,300 from the
Foundation to the University of Toronto [the "University"] was matched equally by the
University and the Ontario Government through the Ontario Student Opportunity Trust Fund.
This established a $9,900 endowment to be held by the University for the benefit of graduate
students studying with University faculty members located at the hospital facilities and engaged in
cancer research.

The following financial results for the year ended April 30, 2009 were reported by the University
to the Foundation:

18. STATEMENT OF CASH FLOWS
A separate statement of cash flows has not been presented since cash flows from operating,
investing and financing activities are readily apparent from the other financial statements.

19. CAPITAL MANAGEMENT
In managing capital, the Foundation focuses on liquid resources available for operations. The
Foundation's objective is to have sufficient liquid resources to continue operating despite adverse
financial events and to provide it with the flexibility to take advantage of opportunities that will
advance its purposes. The need for sufficient liquid resources is considered in the preparation of
an annual budget and in the monitoring of cash flows and actual operating results compared to the
budget. As at March 31, 2009, the Foundation has met its objective of having sufficient liquid
resources to meet its current obligations.
Investment Management at The Princess Margaret
Hospital Foundation
A Report From the Foundation’s Investment Committee

The value of the Foundation’s investment portfolio stood at $217 million at the end of March 2009, compared to
$240 million at the end of March 2008. The calculated return on investments over the 12-month period was -9.4%.
While a negative return experience is never cause for celebration, it should be noted that over the same 12-month
period the Canadian stock market (S&P TSX) fell -32.4% and the US stock market (S&P 500) -41.0%.

There are two reasons why the Foundation’s investment portfolio came through the recent period of extreme capital
markets turmoil in relatively good condition. First, some years ago, the Investment Committee adopted a conserva-
tive investment policy. The policy recognized that a large portion of the payment obligations in support of cancer
research were medium-term in length, thus requiring the use of medium-term bonds rather than equities. The second
reason is that the Foundation employs investment experts to manage the bond and the more risk-taking components
of its investment portfolio.

The portfolio’s bond component is managed by Canso Investment Counsel and Jarislowsky Fraser, and the remainder
by Commonfund, a specialist organization in managing investment portfolios for educational and medical founda-
tions. Our managers maintained adequate liquidity, and stayed clear of such troubled investments as asset-backed
commercial paper and complex ‘black box’ derivatives. However, as a measure of caution, the Foundation’s Board did
decide to reduce the payout on endowed funds from 5% to 4% this year. This policy will be reviewed again next year.

The decline in portfolio value would have been even more modest had the Canadian dollar not fallen significantly
against the US dollar over the 12-month period. The Foundation’s current policy is to hedge 50% of US dollar expo-
sure above a US/CDN exchange rate of 90 cents, increasing to a 75% hedge below 90 cents. The rationale is that our
payment obligations are in Canadian dollars, and hence we need to control the amount of foreign exchange risk in
the portfolio. However, such a policy reduces returns during periods when the US dollar is strong versus the Canadian
dollar, as was the case over the March 2008 to March 2009 period. As we write this in early May, the Canadian dollar
is appreciating once again, re-enforcing the value of continuing to control foreign exchange risk. The Investment
Committee intends to review the Foundation’s foreign exchange hedging policy on a regular basis.

Looking ahead, financial markets have already staged a significant recovery from their March lows. It remains to be
seen if these gains can be sustained, or whether further turbulence lies ahead. Either way, the Foundation believes its
investment policy is appropriate for current conditions, and has confidence that it will continue to be expertly imple-
mented by its investment managers.
