  • Jim Pattison, who has a reported net worth of $5.9 billion, has been called “Canada’s Warren Buffett.”
  • Like Buffett, Pattison is the third-richest person in his country, is relatively frugal, and donates heavily to philanthropy.
  • But Pattison can also be a little lavish — he owns a $25 million yacht and a fleet of jets.

Warren Buffett has plenty of billionaire peers, but it’s easy to see why Jim Pattison has been dubbed this Canadian counterpart.

Known as “Canada’s Warren Buffett,” Pattison, 90, has a net worth of $5.9 billion, according to Forbes. It may not even graze Buffett’s $8o billion net worth, but it ranks him as the third-richest man in Canada — equivalent to Buffett’s seat as the third-richest man in America.

Also like Buffett, Pattinson is relatively frugal. Born during the Great Depression, he had humble beginnings that stuck with him even as he created and developed a giant conglomerate, The Jim Pattison Group, of 200-plus companies worth more than $7 billion today. He also donates heavily to philanthropy.
