Gregory Sanders, Past-Chair
Head of Tax Group, Perley-Roberton, Hill & McDougall LLP
Having lost both of his parents to cancer, Gregory Sanders knows first-hand the importance of having the best cancer care, support and treatments available close to home.
Since 2008, Gregory has been volunteering with the Cancer Foundation as a way to ensure that cancer remains a priority year-round in our community.
In 2008, Gregory first began offering up his expertise in tax law to help others in the community give back through gift planning. In 2010, he joined the Board of Directors and, since then, has taken on challenge after challenge, including chairing the Cancer Champions Breakfast for the past four years and, more recently, taking on the role of Chair of the Cancer Foundation Board of Directors in 2015.
With a background in tax law, Gregory brings a wealth of knowledge to the Board of Directors in the areas of tax and estate planning, CRA guidelines, tax litigation, cross-border/international tax law, charity tax issues and how to deal effectively with changes to tax legislation. Along with his experience in tax law, Gregory is also a seasoned volunteer, having chaired boards of numerous local charities and events.
Gregory’s devotion to his family is what inspires him to be active in the community: to set a good example for his children and to make the community a better place to live.
An avid sports fan, Gregory enjoys attending various sporting events and skiing in his spare time. He also enjoys spending time with his kids, taking them to and from their own sporting activities.
