A venue for arts, culture and heritage on Toronto's waterfront.
When The Corleck Building opens in 2023, it will become a vibrant new venue for arts, culture and heritage on Toronto’s waterfront. The Corleck Building will present new opportunities for the Irish-Canadian community to explore its deep roots, and to engage with the many diverse cultures that enrich the city today.
- Robert G. Kearns, Founder & Chair of the Canada Ireland Foundation
With most of the inside structure work complete, the cleaning of the outside brick walls has started, bringing back the original color of this Heritage Building.
On November 2, 2021, a special groundbreaking ceremony was held to mark the official start of construction work on The Corleck, as well as the launch of the second phase of rehabilitation work by The City of Toronto on the Canadian Malting Company silos and the surrounding public realm on Eireann Quay.
The Foundation was honoured to be joined at this event by Mayor John Tory, Councillor Joe Cressy as well as Dr. Eamonn McKee, Ireland's Ambassador to Canada. Many additional dignitaries, partners and supports were on hand, including The Honourable Seamus O'Regan (Federal Minister of Trade), Mr. James Maloney (MP for Etobicoke-Lakeshore and Chair of the Canada-Ireland Interparliamentary Group), and Mr. Chris Glover (MPP for Fort York-Spadina).
