The son of a carpenter who came from Friuli, Italy in 1922, Rudolph P. Bratty was born in Canada and brought up in a tradition of deep responsibility to his community. He became one of Toronto’s most successful real estate developers, head of his family’s development company, The Remington Group, and a partner in the law firm of Bratty & Partners. His business accomplishments are paralleled by his deep commitment to many charities. A major financial supporter of Pier 21, which celebrates Canada’s immigrant history, he was a member of the original National Advisory Council. Rudy Bratty embodies the Canadian spirit of generosity.
