Province announces zoning order to support construction of 640 long-term care beds in Mississauga

Ontario’s Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing filed an Enhanced Minister Zoning Order (EMZO) on August 31, 2020, to support the construction of the long-term care project at 2210 Speakman Drive in Mississauga within the next 14 months.

The EMZO is part of the Ontario’s government’s ‘Accelerated Build Pilot Program’, led by Infrastructure Ontario and the Ministry of Long-Term Care, that will speed up the construction of long-term care homes and address the urgent need in this community to accommodate seniors in a safe and healthy setting. This allows for faster access to long-term care for the people of Mississauga, and relieves pressure at Trillium Health Partners’ (THP) hospital sites.

Tree Contractor on site August 22, 2020

THP’s contractor, Maple Hill Tree Services, will be on site on August 22 to remove a dead tree down to trunk level as well as some of its limbs. This action is in response to a resident in the neighbourhood who informed us a dead tree had fallen on the Speakman Drive property (not near the work site). The contractor will also assess whether other trees need to be removed. Going forward, we will be working with Infrastructure Ontario to discuss a fulsome review of all trees on the property.

We will continue to share information as it becomes available. As always, we welcome all of your questions and comments, and are committed to working together throughout this development. Please send your questions to public.affairs@thp.ca.


Pre-construction activity on site in August/September 2020

In late August and early September, increased activity will be taking place at 2210 Speakman Drive, the future site of 640 long-term care beds, as part of the Ontario government’s Accelerated Build Pilot Program.

On-site activities will include:

  • Site visits by hospital staff and our partners to gather information about the site and the conditions of the existing ground (early land assessment and surveying, field clearing and drilling)
  • These activities are all part of the planning and due diligence process that will help inform design and construction
  • We expect this pre-construction activity to have minimal impact on the surrounding neighbourhood. Minimal amounts of noise and dust will be generated by field clearing and drilling that will take place in late August and early September
