04T - Residences of the Sisters of St. Joseph

24 May 2018 8:30 AM - 10:30 AM



2.0 ConEd Learning Hours

The home of the Sisters of St. Joseph of  Toronto articulates both individual contemplative life and the community engagement of the Sisters' ministries.  Relationships to nature and the city reinforce public and private aspects. These dualities are articulated both in the exterior of the building and the spaces within. The home includes 58 residential suites accommodating a variety of levels of care, from independent living to long-term care, nursing stations and associated requirements - chapel, dining and kitchen facilities, meeting spaces and community rooms. You will see the main communal spaces, located on the ground floor with easy adjacencies to facilitate community spirit. The project aspires to a high level of sustainability for ethical reasons. This includes geothermal for heating and cooling, solar preheat for domestic hot water, photovoltaic panels, green roofs, high-quality building envelope, bioswales, naturalized landscape and permeable paving.

All tours will depart from the MTCC, South Building lobby. Please gather at least 15 minutes prior to your tour time.
