Heritage MD was founded on one core principle: empowering health care professionals with the formation of the Heritage Council as the cornerstone of its foundation. At the helm of the Heritage Council stands Dr. Renzo Cecere, a distinguished Cardiac Surgeon at the MUHC, past Chief of Cardiac Surgery and former Chair of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) Physicians Council.

“Through collaborative dialogue and shared expertise, the Heritage Council empowers health care professionals to guide and mold a truly independent firm that is deeply aligned with our individual and collective aspirations. Together, we are building more than just a wealth advisory firm—we are forging world class partnerships with the promise of a legacy of prosperity for generations to come”
