Heart Institute Construction Expansion - Open House on January 13

You are here

I and our MPP Yasir Naqvi, along with the Civic Hospital Neighbourhood Association (CHNA), will be attending a public open house on January 13 starting at 7 pm in the Foustanellas Auditorium of the Heart Institute. The Institute's project lead and contractor PCL will be on hand to discuss the project timelines and neighbourhood impacts.

I've had productive meetings this week with Institute and Hospital executives, and will be working with the community and CHNA to ensure our day-to-day construction concerns are addressed, and that the lines of communication are open.

There are several key documents available now for review:

The Heart Institute is in process of creating a blog to keep residents apprised of progress. The CHNA will also be publishing information for residents; my thanks go to them for their heavy engagement with the project already.

See you on the 13th!
