St. Hilda’s Towers Inc. was created under the leadership of Bishop Lewis Garnsworthy in the 1970s. It was recognized that there was a growing need for affordable housing for seniors and the Dufferin and VaughanTowers were built to provide nearly 350 residential suites. In the late 1980’s, the Board of Directors approved the construction of a residence offering apartments for independent seniors, and a third tower was opened in September 1996. This building offered one and two bedroom apartments and was named the Lewis Garnsworthy Residence.
In 1999, Reverend Canon Derwyn Shea assumed the role of Rector at St. Hilda’s Anglican Church and took over the helm as Chairman and CEO of St. Hilda’s Towers, the Lewis Garnsworthy Residence and the St. Hilda’s Tower’s Foundation. In 2002, Canon Shea negotiated an expansion of our services to include convalescent and respite care. Today, St. Hilda’s maintains an association with the Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) and University Health Network (UHN) under the umbrella of the Central Toronto Local Integrated Health Network (LHIN) and the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care and continues to provide seniors with a safe, caring and vibrant community where they can live, engage and age with dignity and purpose.
The Foundation raises funds through special events, sponsorships, general donations, individual and corporate donations, government and granting agencies, and through planned giving and bequests.
