Emily's House

PACRibbonCuttingEmily’s House, our new children’s hospice for The Philip Aziz Centre, had its open house and official opening on Tuesday June 11, 2013.

The project is the first of its kind in Toronto and one of six in Canada. The facility will meet the needs of families and children living with the challenges of a life-limiting illness such as cancer and HIV/AIDS.

This home will provide increased respite options for families and a choice of setting for medical/respite care.

The project, which incorporates the heritage restoration of the house for the Governor of the Don Jail, includes a large addition set within a public park being created on the Bridgepoint lands east of the Don River, north of Gerrard Street.
