Groundbreaking ceremony for redevelopment of Kipling Acres
Residents at Toronto's Kipling Acres long-term care home will welcome Councillor Doug Ford (Ward 2 Etobicoke North), Maria Britto - Board Chair of Central West Local Health Integration Network, Reg Paul - Acting General Manager of Long-Term Care Homes and Services, and community supporters for a groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate the beginning of construction of the new long-term care home.

Date: Wednesday, October 19
Time: 1 p.m.
Location: 2233 Kipling Ave., north of Rexdale Boulevard

The first phase of construction will create a new 192-bed long-term care home at the existing location. The new facility will meet modern standards for long-term care and provide better wheelchair access.

Kipling Acres - one of the City of Toronto’s 10 long-term care homes - is being redeveloped with capital funding from the City of Toronto and the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. Kipling Acres is home to residents ranging in age from 31 to 104.

Since opening in 1959, Kipling Acres has had a tradition of providing high quality care and is an important part of its northern Etobicoke community.
