A Warm “Welcome” for Markham’s Aaniin Community Centre

With a name that means “welcome” in Ojibwe, the Aaniin Community Centre and Library embraces Markham’s vibrant multi-cultural population within one
unifying design. Architects Perkins + Will have developed a captivating and inclusive space - from the creation studios and teaching kitchen, to a sensory room with calming light displays, and many more engaging areas to discover. Featured in Toronto Life, the facility is receiving high praise for addressing the community’s needs in one innovative space.

The project team for this community treasure included Smith + Andersen as the mechanical consultant, and Footprint, a member of the Smith + Andersen Group of companies, as the energy modelling consultant.
