"We've been informed of the tragic news that Barry and Honey Sherman have unexpectedly passed away", said the Twitter account of Apotex, which Sherman founded in 1974. "I have had the privilege of knowing them both well for many years".

Sherman, 75, founded privately held Apotex in 1974, growing it by introducing large numbers of low-priced generic drugs that took market share from branded pharmaceuticals.

The company, which made its name producing generic drugs, grew to employ more than 11,000 people worldwide. "Incredible philanthropists, great leaders in health care".

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau extended his condolences "to their family and friends, and to everyone touched by their vision and spirit".

Speaking with reporters about the couple on Saturday morning, Mayor John Tory said they were "extraordinary citizens" who "contributed so much to so many in Toronto. A very, very sad day", he wrote.

According to Fortune magazine, Sherman was worth $3.2 billion at the time of his death, making him the 12th richest person in Canada.

"Their visible leadership on our hospital and foundation board of directors was infused with warmth, passion and a fierce intelligence", Brent Belzberg said in a statement.
