September 1, 2023 – Contractors are scheduled to commence work on the west side of the Motherhouse near Fairview Road in early September 2023. The purpose of this phase of construction is to tie in utilities for Providence Care’s Providence Manor redevelopment project, which is expected to open in late 2026. The 320-bed home will be nestled in green space in a community-like setting, with a multi-faceted services hub designed to honour the 160-year legacy of Providence Care Founders, the Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul.

August 31, 2023 – Environmental contractors are scheduled to commence work at the east end of Phillips Street mid-late September 2023. The purpose of this phase of construction is to tie in utilities for Providence Care’s new Hospice Kingston residence, which is expected to open in mid-2024. This 10-suite residence will be accessed via Phillips Street. Work will take place from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and the estimated duration for this phase of construction is September to December 2023. Flagmen will be provided as required to maintain traffic flow.

August 21, 2023 – Construction activity, including excavation and rock breaking, will begin the week of August 28 to start installing new site services for the new Providence Manor.

April 24, 2023 – Tree removals are now complete as we prepare for work to begin to bring new services (water, sewer, gas and hydro) to the new Providence Manor site.  Follow this link to watch drone footage provided by Sullivan Construction showing the progress.

March 7, 2023 – Providence Care has shared an update on the Providence Manor redevelopment project ramping up again after a necessary pause. The long-term care home redevelopment project was put on hold in February 2022 as pandemic-related inflation significantly affected the cost of construction. The Ministry of Long-Term Care committed additional funding to support the project and it is now ready to move forward without impact to project scope.

February 22, 2023 – Site preparation and construction activity will begin at Providence Village Inc. at 1200 Princess Street on March 6. Work will include preparatory activities related to tree protection and removal, along with infrastructure to support construction such as temporary roadways and parking, soil removal, and demolition of some smaller outbuildings. <more…>
