About the Project

Wigwamen Terrace is a 103-apartment complex for seniors located at 14 Spadina Road beside the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto just north of Bloor St. The building is “L” shaped with one wing being 6 storeys high and the other being 3 storeys high.

This development was a 3 storey addition to the existing 3 storey wing of the building, to accommodate 24 new one-bedroom units and a rooftop terrace with a four season greenhouse.

The new units house Aboriginal seniors and people with disabilities. All the new dwelling units are affordable with monthly rents set below the CMHC market rent average.
