Peter Spyros Goudas is a remarkable Canadian of Greek extraction. The Order of Canada recognizes “Outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation”. And we can’t think of a better way to describe Mr Goudas’ life-story.
From desperately poor beginnings as a penniless immigrant, he has risen to become one of Canada’s most acclaimed entrepreneurs, winning the Entrepreneur of the Year award in 1993. But he never forgot his humble roots, and this, together with his dedication to community causes has won him a great deal of love and respect among those whose lives he has touched.
