Heather Stefanson’s Private Member’s Statement on Moe Levy delivered on May 14, 2014, in the Legislature

June 23, 2014

Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to rise in the House today to recognize Mr. Moses (Moe) Levy who was honoured last night as this year’s recipient of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s highest accolade, a Scopus Award.


Mr. Levy was born in Bombay and after living in Israel and moving around Europe, he came to Winnipeg in 1968. Here he pursued his Bachelor of Commerce and Masters of Business degrees at the University of Manitoba. He went on to become a managing partner in Manitoba’s Industry, Trade and Tourism Department and was the creator of the first business incubator program in Canada called “Enterprise Manitoba”. Mr. Levy’s vast career has seen him in numerous roles as an entrepreneur, civil servant, university lecturer and philanthropic executive. His role as president and CEO of the Canadian Heritage Company as well as his involvement with the Asper School of Business, the Asper Foundation and the Canadian Museum for Human Rights have all been sighted in the decision to award him with the 2014 Scopus Award.


President of the Winnipeg Chapter of the Canadian Friends of the Hebrew University, Margaret Shuckett has stated, “Manitoba has benefited enormously from Moe’s dedicated and strategic philanthropic focus, as demonstrated by his successful career in both the Jewish and general communities.”


Mr. Speaker, I ask that all Members of the House join me in congratulating Mr. Levy as the recipient of this most prestigious award and thank him for his great contributions to Manitoba.


Thank you Mr. Speaker.
