Power Corporation of Canada

"Incorporated in 1925, Power Corporation of Canada is a diversified international management and holding company with interests in companies that are active in the financial services, communications and other business sectors." [1]

"From 1962 to 1963 the market value of the Company’s investments rose from $82 million to more than $120 million, less than 9 per cent of which was represented by power utilities. And by the time Maurice Strong departed in 1966 to become Director-General of the Canadian government’s external aid program and William Turner took over as President, Power Corporation had established new records, with $214 million in assets, $7.7 million in income, and the paying of $2.6 million in dividends to its common shareholders." He was succeeded by Jean Parisien. [2]
