With a focus on hope, belonging, discovery and celebration, the New Grandview Kids will support the seamless and coordinated provision of family-centred care for children and youth with physical, communication and developmental needs. It will be an open, welcoming and inclusive community-based paediatric facility, offering an integrated mix of rehabilitation, medical and clinical services, as well as education and research activities.
Due to the size and scope of this project, Grandview Kids has entered into a public-private partnership (P3) with Infrastructure Ontario (IO). Under P3s, provincial ministries and/or project owners establish the scope and purpose of a project, while design and construction work is carried out (and often financed) by the private sector. The P3 approach allows projects to be delivered more efficiently and more cost effectively than traditional procurement.
In May 2021, Grandview Kids and Infrastructure Ontario initiated a Request for Proposals (RFP) process. In April 2022, the Children First Consortium was selected as the preferred proponent to design, build and finance the project.

The Project, located on Harwood Road North in Ajax, is targeted to be completed in the Fall of 2024.

Building on the exceptional talent and skillset of Team Grandview’s physicians, leadership, clinicians, administrative and support staff, the new, larger, fully accessible facility will enable Grandview Kids to expand and enhance existing services and introduce new ones, better meeting the rapidly growing demand of its community.
The Centre of Excellence will include:
- Centre-based rehabilitation services, including occupational therapy, physiotherapy, speech-language pathology, recreation therapy, audiology, infant hearing, blind-low vision, social work
- Ontario Autism Program (OAP)
- Preschool Outreach Program (POP)
- School-Based Rehabilitation (SBR)
- Developmental Paediatricians and specialized medical services, including a Paediatric Complex Care Program
- Family/caregiver resources and support
- Campbell Children’s School

Funding for this facility is provided by the Ontario Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services (MCCSS), the Government of Canada and Grandview Kids. Through the Grandview Kids Foundation’s Believe Campaign, Grandview Kids has received two lead gifts: $5,000,000 from the late Mr. Jerry Coughlan and $5,035,000 from the Regional Municipality of Durham. In addition, the Town of Ajax has donated a five-acre parcel of land in north Ajax where the new centre will be built.
In December 2022, the New Grandview Kids achieved another major milestone in its development project: “100% Design Development (DD) Submittals.” This means that working drawings can be created showing all architectural, engineering and landscape design information, following extensive stakeholder input from all New Build partners.
Our next major milestone will be “100% Construction Document (CD) Submittals,” targeted for the Spring 2023. At that point, working drawing documentation, including construction drawings, reports, schedules and specifications will have progressed from the 50% working drawing documentation, showing all architectural, engineering and landscape design information in accordance with the requirements of our Project Agreement.
