CP Women's Open raises more than $2.5 million for CHEO.
About the 2022 tournament
The CP Women's Open returned after a two-year absence with record attendance and incredible performances at the Ottawa Hunt Golf and Country Club from Aug. 22 to 28. More than 70,000 golf fans came to watch Paula Reto win her first LPGA tour event as the CP Women’s’ Open returned to Canada’s national capital for the first time since 2017.
Heart health was the biggest winner at the CP Women’s Open as CP helped raise more than $3 million dollars through our CP Has Heart program. On the last day of the tournament CP presented cheques of $2.5 million to the CHEO Foundation and $510,000 to the tournament’s community partner the Perth & Smith Falls District Hospital Foundation for all fundraising efforts.

LPGA Tour professional Brooke Henderson is CP's golf ambassador for the
CP Women's Open. The Canadian prodigy, born in Smiths Falls, Ontario, has 12 wins on the LPGA Tour, including the 2018 CP Women's Open and two majors (2016 and 2022). Henderson is also a graduate of Golf Canada's National Amateur Squad and Young Pro Squad supported by CP, which marked the beginning of her relationship with the railway.
"Brooke remains the perfect ambassador for CP as we continue to grow the game of golf, advocate for healthy living through CP Has Heart, and build on the iconic Canadian brand that is CP. We've also added her sister and caddy Brittany to the CP family, as railroaders know that precision and excellence requires a strong team," said Keith Creel, CP President and Chief Executive Officer.
LPGA Tour professional Lorie Kane has triumphed on the golf course, represented Canada and is recognized as a leader for the sport. In October 2021, she received the Order of Sport and was inducted to
Canada's Sports Hall of Fame. As a CP Ambassador, she embodies our ongoing support of women's golf through the CP Women's Open, and helps us elevate CP Has Heart as we continue to raise money and awareness for heart health. 2022 marked Lorie's 30th and final entry into the LPGA's Canadian Open. We look forward to working with Lorie in her next chapter.
Over $16 million has been raised in support of children's heart health in the nine years of CP's title sponsorship of the event.
