StFX to become home to $60M Brian Mulroney Institute of Government

October 27, 2016

Former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney has announced plans for a $60M institute bearing his name that will be located at Saint Francis Xavier University. An alumnus of StFX, Mulroney reportedly raised $55M of the funds personally and donated an additional $1M of his own money. The Brian Mulroney Institute of Government will be housed in the planned $40M Mulroney Hall on StFX’s main campus. StFX President Kent MacDonald praised both the former prime minister and the donation, saying that Mulroney is “one of our greatest sons” and adding that the gift “absolutely will be the most transformative project in the history of this university in 164 years.” Globe and Mail
