    1. Balsy never went to UWaterloo.
      Lazaridis never graduated - my dad was friends with him in school and was one of the early rim guys who got out at the right time lol

      though he was given an honorary degree so that might count?

  2. Hong Kong business tycoon, Joseph Lau, is a UW alumnus of the 1970's. His net worth is an estimated USD $5.8 billion.

  3. His Chinese wiki says he studied at uWaterloo, so it's possible that he transferred to Windsor to finish his degree.

  9. Not sure if he's the absolute wealthiest, but David Cheriton (after whom the School of Computer Science is named, and 20th-wealthiest in Canada according to Wikipedia) is worth about US$ 1.7 billion.
