Canoe Landing Wins OPWA 2020 Project of the Year

January 14, 2021

We are excited to announce that the City of Toronto’s Canoe Landing Project has been named the Ontario Public Works Association’s (OPWA’s) 2020 Project of the Year in the $50 million+ structures category!

Canoe Landing is a community project twenty years in the making, and we are proud to have been a part of it. Bringing together the City of Toronto, the Toronto Catholic District School Board and the Toronto District School Board, the mixed-use project in downtown Toronto combines a recreation centre, a childcare centre and two elementary schools for the CityPlace neighbourhood.

One of the development’s most stunning features is its series of sloping green roofs, designed to appear from above as an extension of the adjacent Canoe Landing park. Built to the Toronto Green Standard, the roof structure is also a platform for an outdoor basketball court, community gardens and an energy-generating photovoltaic array.

Canoe Landing is an outstanding example of multiple partners and stakeholders working collaboratively to achieve a shared vision, as well as individual objectives. The development fulfills the needs of the high-density urban neighbourhoood by providing world-class educational, recreational and daycare services.
