Remembering David Braley

It is with profound sadness that Joseph Brant Hospital and the Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation acknowledge the passing of David Braley.

Mr. Braley was a Hamilton businessman and champion for the Canadian Football League where he served as owner of three teams including the BC Lions, Toronto Argonauts and Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

He received the Order of Canada in 2019 for his contributions to the CFL, and for his entrepreneurial and philanthropic leadership in our community.

We would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to Mr. Braley’s family and the many people whose lives were made better by Mr. Braley’s philanthropic support.

His generosity has been felt across the country including his $3 Million gift in support of the redevelopment and expansion of Joseph Brant Hospital.

We have lost a great Canadian and he will be missed.
