Anishnawbe Health Toronto’s New Home Moves Forward to the Construction Phase

In late December, Anishnawbe Health Toronto received the long-awaited news that its new home can move forward with construction! The facility which will bring all of AHT’s programs and services under one roof is now slated to begin construction in the summer of 2021 with a projected opening date in the spring of 2023. “Our ground-breaking has been a moving target largely due to the necessary approvals required by the City of Toronto and Waterfront Toronto, and unanticipated delays due to the pandemic,” says Joe Hester, Executive Director of AHT. “At the moment, we are tentatively planning for a ground-breaking ceremony on June 21, coinciding with National Indigenous Peoples Day and the summer solstice.”
In late December, the Ministry of Health approved the project to go to the next phase of construction and in January a public tender was released to hire a general contractor. In late February, the tender closed and the winner of the contract will be announced in the coming weeks. Look for future updates on social media and in future newsletters. You can follow us at
