Peter Gilgan Foundation donates $100 million – largest single gift ever to SickKids Hospital

Peter Gilgan SickKids Hospital

The Peter Gilgan Foundation has donated an unprecedented gift of $100 million to The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) – the largest single gift ever to SickKids. Together with donations made to other hospitals and health care organizations to date, this makes Peter Gilgan and the Peter Gilgan Foundation the largest benefactor to health care in Canada.

This $100-million gift will support the SickKids VS Limits campaign, a key element of which involves redevelopment of the SickKids campus, including building a new patient care tower on University Avenue, which will be named the Peter Gilgan Family Patient Care Tower.

Gilgan is founder and CEO of Mattamy Homes, the largest privately owned homebuilder in North America.

Breakthrough research

“We are extraordinarily grateful to Peter Gilgan and the Peter Gilgan Foundation for their ongoing philanthropic leadership and dedication to SickKids,” says Dr. Ronald Cohn, president and CEO of SickKids. “Our vision for the children’s hospital of the future includes the construction of a state-of-the-art building, matching our world-class care with family-friendly spaces for patients and their loved ones. This gift is unparalleled and will help ensure our vision becomes reality. In conjunction with a commitment from the government of Ontario, and support from other donors, this gift will help SickKids continue to advance children’s health through exemplary clinical care, breakthrough research, and teaching excellence both at home and around the world.”

“To continue to have the opportunity to support SickKids is an honour and is also very humbling,” says Gilgan. “I’m in a privileged position to be able to make this gift, and I know it’s going to be used to help children, today and in the future, live longer and healthier lives.”

The commitment from the Peter Gilgan Foundation to ensuring the SickKids campus is a cutting-edge world leader began in 2012 with a transformational gift of $40 million to support the construction of the SickKids Centre for Research and Learning. The Peter Gilgan Centre for Research and Learning brings together 2,000 research staff – who previously worked in six different buildings – under one roof to enhance interactions between clinical and research colleagues. The integration of research with patient care and learning are among the strengths of SickKids. This most recent donation brings the cumulative giving from the Peter Gilgan Foundation to SickKids to more than $140 million.

SickKids will break ground in October 2019 on the first of two buildings. The first building, the Patient Support Centre, will house the SickKids Learning Institute with 1,200 world-class trainees, a Simulation Centre for hands-on teaching, and provide 6,000 professionals, management and support staff with up-to-date spaces to do their best work. The second building, the Peter Gilgan Family Patient Care Tower, will house critical care and inpatient units. It will reflect the very latest in medical design: Private one-family rooms, dedicated mental-health beds, a state-of-the-art blood and marrow/cellular transplant therapy unit, specialty operating theatres, advanced diagnostic imaging facilities, and a vastly expanded emergency department.

Etobicoke is development central, literally

Etobicoke is development central, literally

Latest News


Etobicoke is development central, literally

In real estate terms, an area in transition is a good thing, since it generally refers to progress, development and things being on the upswing.

Count Etobicoke as just one of those areas.

Really? Etobicoke, that large, narrow north-south swath that stretches from Lake Ontario up to Steeles Ave., and shouldered by Humber River on the east and Etobicoke Creek on the west? With large, well established and affluent neighbourhoods?

Yes, one and the same – the west end locale with the funny name people often mispronounce (FYI the K is silent) – that wasn’t exactly in need of an upgrade.

Blessed with a strong natural location due to its proximity to downtown Toronto, easy access to the QEW and Hwys. 401, 427 and 27, the Bloor subway line and several major TTC and GO Transit hubs, Etobicoke has long been a sought-after residential location.

North Etobicoke, for its easy highway access, plethora of commercial ventures and lower priced real estate. Etobicoke Centre, for its proximity to the Islington-City Centre West central business district, and exclusive neighbourhoods with large, treed properties such as the Kingsway. And South Etobicoke, or Etobicoke Lakeshore, for its prime lakefront location and areas such as Humber Bay and Mystic Pointe.

Do south

But when it comes to new condo development and buying opportunities, it’s all about the south. Well, mostly the south, until very recently.

Etobicoke Lakeshore was the first to transition, with the former motel strip at Lakeshore and Park Lawn giving way over the last several years to dozens of new projects. Today it is one of Toronto’s hottest new condo destinations. Your location here is right on Lake Ontario, with outstanding views of downtown Toronto, along the Martin Goodman Trail for cycling and running, and close to the Gardiner to commute into the city and to the QEW to head west. TTC bus and streetcar service is quite literally at your front door.

Now the condo boom is spreading north, into the central part of Etobicoke with new developments along Dundas St. W. between Islington and the 427, and several more planned for the south side of Dundas just west of Kipling subway. New condos are also springing up along the 427 near Burhamthorpe, appealing to those who prefer highway access over transit.

Under construction

Indeed, in Etobicoke Centre, construction will be the order of the day. For years. Six Points intersection, known locally as “Spaghetti Junction,” is a complicated interchange where Kipling, Bloor and Dundas all intersect. To support future development in the area, the City is spending tens of millions of dollars over the next two years to modernize the road and surrounding infrastructure. Plans include improved pedestrian and cycle access, wider sidewalks, more trees, street furniture and improved access to Kipling subway. The station itself is being expanded into a regional transit hub to link the TTC with GO Transit trains and buses, as well as Mississauga Mi-Way bus lines.

Location, location, location

Bordered on the south by Lake Ontario, on the east by the Humber River, on the west by Etobicoke Creek and Mississauga, and on the north by Steeles Ave. W.; population 365,143.

The future is now in Brampton

The future is now in Brampton

Latest News


The future is now in Brampton

It’s one thing for a neighbourhood to be in transition, quite another for an entire city. But that’s precisely what’s happening in Brampton, where a concerted effort to bring the municipality into the future now, is yielding visible results.

In a city of about 600,000 – the third largest in the GTA and the ninth largest in Canada – Brampton has been booming for years. Consider, for example that current population is almost double what it was not even 20 years ago.

What’s attracting newcomers to Brampton in such numbers? In short – economic growth. Indeed, with major companies such as Loblaw Companies Ltd., Canadian Tire Corp., Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Ltd. and Rogers Communications Inc. having headquarters in the city, employment opportunities have been plentiful. Brampton’s economy in recent years has diversified to include sectors such as communications technologies, life sciences and business services.

Cybersecure catalyst

And even more recently, education. Just last month, for example, the City confirmed a collaboration with Ryerson University, outlining the required funding and resources needed for establishing the Ryerson University-led Innovation Hub and Cybersecure Catalyst in downtown Brampton. This includes the Chang School of Continuing Education expanding its cybersecurity courses; launching the Brampton Incubation/Innovation Hub; and the Cybersecure Catalyst, a new national centre for innovation and collaboration in cybersecurity.

“This is a very exciting move forward for Brampton, moving important projects with Ryerson University closer to reality,” says Mayor Patrick Brown. “These projects will help spur economic growth, create jobs and position Brampton as a hub for cybersecurity.”

Managing such growth requires planning, including the City’s Vision 2040, a long-term vision to reinvent Brampton. The plan includes such key transformations as including model new neighbourhoods; an improved transit network, new core loop, walking and cycling networks; better designed communities, handsome buildings; and sustainability built into everything.

Budgeting growth

Brampton’s 2019-21 budget proposal includes initiatives to that end, including increasing Brampton Transit’s fleet by 16 per cent over three years, adding 46 conventional buses and 25 Zum buses; creating a new Marketing and Foreign Direct Investment Program; and a Community Improvement Program to incentivize the economic sectors identified in Brampton’s Economic Development Master Plan.

It’s not all about business in Brampton, however. Proximity to nature also helps deliver quality of life in the city. Gage Park, Brampton’s oldest municipal park, opened in 1903; Heart Lake Conservation Area, occupying 169 hectares in the Etobicoke Creek watershed; and Chinguacousy Park, a 40-hectare park in the Bramalea section of town.

Mattamy Homes reports exceptional sales in Milton

Mattamy Homes Milton

In a clear sign that the fundamentals of the Toronto area real estate market remain strong, Mattamy Homes is reporting robust January sales results from the release of new lots in its Hawthorne South Village Sixteen Mile Creek community in Milton, Ont.

The Creekside Collection sold out all 180 lots released for sale on Jan. 19 (113 sales) and Jan. 26 (67 sales). Over the two days, Mattamy hosted 500 families hoping to secure a townhome or detached home featuring the company’s designs in its most awarded community ever. Buyer lineups began forming days before the Saturday openings, and by the end of both days, all available inventory had been sold out.

“While there is no doubt that the real estate market in the Greater Toronto Area has undergone change in the last 18 months, our sales results in Milton the past two weekends are telling a very positive story,” says Brad Carr, CEO of Mattamy Homes Canada. “What we’re seeing is that in the midst of this soft landing, there is definitely still strong demand driven by solid market fundamentals. We are pleased to see so many buyers recognizing the long-term value of home ownership and investing in their families’ future.”

The products available at the Creekside Collection comprise a variety of townhome and detached designs: Freehold Village Homes, two-storey townhomes and detached homes on 30-, 34-, 36- and 43-ft. lots.

Mattamy is also looking forward to seeing continued strong results with upcoming sales launches in Brampton (Feb. 2) and Oakville, as well as more releases to come in Milton.

Smart, energy-efficient homes of the future coming to Markham

Smart, energy-efficient homes of the future coming to Markham

The City of Markham in partnership with Mattamy Homes and Enwave Energy Corp. have announced they will research and design a pilot neighbourhood of approximately 300 homes, serviced by a community-scale distributed geothermal energy system for heating, cooling, and domestic hot water. Grant funding has been provided by The Atmospheric Fund (TAF) for design activities. The TAF invests in urban climate solutions in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area to reduce carbon emissions and air pollution.

The City of Markham has set out to become a net-zero emissions city by 2050. To achieve this ambitious target, the Municipal Energy Plan – Getting to Zero includes strategies for increasing and improving energy efficiency through implementing green technology, energy conservation and efficiency in all sectors of Markham. Markham will welcome Canada’s largest geothermal net-zero emissions community, which will have the potential to transform the residential housing market. The community’s heating and cooling system will be maintained, operated and delivered by Enwave Energy.

“This is first major step to achieving our goal of becoming net-zero water, waste and emissions community by 2050, and this one of many innovative initiatives you will see with development partners,” says Markham Mayor Frank Scarpitti. “Markham is a municipal leader in energy conservation and management. This project will set the standard for a new way of thinking about how we generate and distribute energy in North America.”

Located in north Markham, the community will utilize deep wells up to 250 metres, allowing the community to tap into geothermal energy. Heating and cooling will be delivered at the neighborhood level through a single common ambient pipe buried underneath the community and connected to each home, similar to that of an electrical grid. The system will be maintained and operated by Enwave’s team of expert engineers, who will ensure the system is efficient and reliable.

This community scale model boasts several benefits to the consumer, including greater energy efficiency through optimization, increased energy savings to consumers, reduced maintenance burden and costs and reduced greenhouse gas emissions. All of these benefits will increase comfort and convenience for residents.

Upon completion of the pilot, the model may be applied to future phases of the Mattamy development. The best practices and lessons learned from this unique partnership will help advance geothermal community energy systems across the GTA and beyond.

Construction of this new community is expected to begin in 2020.

“Mattamy Homes is privileged to be a partner with the City of Markham and Enwave in this innovative project,” says Brad Carr, CEO, Mattamy Homes Canada. “This forward- thinking business model, where the burden of optimizing advanced heating and cooling equipment is transferred from the homeowner to a private entity, will contribute to job creation and drive innovation adoption in the housing industry. Mattamy has a long history of leadership in homebuilding innovation, and we see this partnership as clearly aligned with our sustainability and innovation strategy.”
