Motilal Champsee, 76, passed away peacefully on March 23, 2019 due to a massive stroke. He was surrounded by his family. He is survived by his loving wife Lata, son Manish and daughter-in-law Jean, daughter Sonal and son-in-law Gordan, and grandson Dorian.

Motibhai arrived in Canada in 1965 from Rangoon, Burma, and began working as a typist while studying accounting, graduating as a chartered accountant in 1971. However, he soon left the field to sell real estate. In his first four years, he sold over two hundred homes (nearly a house a week), mainly to new immigrants, leading to him being featured in The Toronto Star for his success. His vision, persistence, and superb negotiating skills served him well throughout his life. His brokerage, Rainbow Realty, handled a wide variety of investment projects including bare land, plazas and residential apartment buildings, conducting over two hundred and fifty syndicate deals, with a volume of $300 million a year. Despite his business acumen, he will be most remembered for his optimism, kindness, and humble nature.

Motibhai’s talents were not only applied in business, but also for the benefit of many communities. Beyond his ongoing support for the Jain Centre of Toronto, Motibhai was a founding member of the Indo-Canadian Chamber of Commerce, helped found Sanatan Mandir through finding, negotiating and purchasing land, and has also helped the Bengali community build their own cultural centre. For our own community, Motibhai was instrumental in purchasing the first and then the second Jain Centre of Toronto.

We will miss him dearly. OM SHANTI SHANTI SHANTI
