Seven Oaks celebrates 20 years of strong roots in the community
What started as an idea for a party has grown into an almost two-metre-tall Inukshuk that will be unveiled by Councillor Paul Ainslie (Ward 43 Scarborough East) and residents to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Seven Oaks Long-Term Care Home.

The Inukshuk will be unveiled:

Date: Friday, October 16
Time: 2 p.m.
Location: Seven Oaks Long-Term Care Home
9 Neilson Rd. (Ellesmere Road and Markham Road)

The idea for the celebration around the Inukshuk - a rock statue - was planted by the home, and organizers branched out into the community to raise funds. The Inukshuk, which was created by local artists for the residents of the home, marks a place of respect and is traditionally used for communication.

Seven Oaks, located in Scarborough, serves 249 residents. First opened in 1989, the home provides individualized care that respects, supports and enables people to maximize independence and quality of life. Seven Oaks offers a full range of services including nursing, medicine, food and nutrition, administration, building services, staff education and programs and services (rehabilitation, recreation, social work, spiritual and religious care, complementary care and music and art therapy).

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.6 million people. It is the economic engine of Canada and one of the greenest and most creative cities in North America. Toronto has won numerous awards for quality, innovation and efficiency in delivering public services. 2009 marks the 175th anniversary of Toronto's incorporation as a city. Toronto's government is dedicated to prosperity, opportunity and liveability for all its residents.
