Eileen Costello Elected Vice Chair

The Canada Ireland Foundation (CIF) is pleased to announce that Ms. Eileen Costello has been elected Vice Chair of the Foundation’s Board of Directors, effective May 1.

Eileen is a Partner in the Municipal and Land Use Planning Group at Aird & Berlis LLP. Eileen has provided invaluable expertise to the CIF as the Chair of the Corleck Construction Committee. The Corleck is a heritage building on Toronto’s waterfront which will become a vibrant new venue for arts, cultural and heritage programming for the Irish-Canadian community.

“Eileen’s talent and expertise provides the right leadership at the right time for the Canada Ireland Foundation,” said founder and Chair, Robert Kearns. Eileen was instrumental, as Chair of the Board of Governors at The Corporation of Massey Hall & Roy Thomson Hall, in shaping Toronto’s cultural landscape through a once-in-a-generation renovation of the historic Massey Hall. We are fortunate to have her guidance as we complete the Corleck.

At Aird & Berlis, Eileen assists clients with acquiring development approvals for a broad range of projects and advises municipalities on all aspects of the statutory and regulatory scheme which governs land development and regulation in the Province.

Eileen is the author of The Ontario Heritage Act and Commentary and regularly advises private property owners and municipal governments in respect of property designations, Heritage Conservation, Districts and property standards bylaws to address designated properties.
