Breaking Ground on Eireann Quay and The Corleck Building

Canada Ireland Foundation was honoured to be joined earlier this week by Mayor John Tory, Councillor Joe Cressy, and Dr. Eamonn McKee, Ireland’s Ambassador to Canada, to mark the start of construction work that will transform a derelict building on Toronto’s waterfront into The Corleck Building, a new home for the Foundation and a vibrant hub for arts, culture and heritage. 

The Foundation is also delighted to announce new landmark philanthropic gifts by Aidan and Pat Flatley, Stephen Smith and Diane Blake, Jonathan See, The Pollock Family Foundation; The Duffy Family Foundation, and Tyler and Claire McNamara. These generous new commitments brings it closer to achieving the $10 million fundraising goal for The Corleck Building’s capital campaign. 

The adaptive reuse and transformation of The Corleck Building is being designed by Kearns Mancini Architects, with construction managed by Boszko & Verity.

Financial support for The Corleck Building has been provided by The City of Toronto as well as private donors.
