ErinoakKids' new locations
In January of 2018, ErinoakKids moved to three new locations!
Where will my family receive services?
Located in Oakville, Mississauga and Brampton, this was the largest Redevelopment Project in the history of the Ministry of Children and Youth, and the first multi-site construction of a Children’s Treatment Centre in the province. The project enabled ErinoakKids to consolidate its patchwork of leased and retrofitted office and commercial space into three new facilities that are fully accessible and appropriately designed to provide care to children and youth with a broad range of disabilities and special needs.
Our new buildings allow us to:
- Offer our complete range of services and supports at each site (with the exception of respite care and the therapy pool, which will be located at the Brampton site), so that families do not have to travel multiple locations for care
- Realize efficiencies so we can serve more children and youth, better and faster
- Provide respite care at The Giampaolo Foundation Clinical Site (Brampton) with a 26-bed regional respite centre, inlcuding The Brannon Family Aspen Lodge and The Birch Lodge
- Meet service demand for the next 25 years
