About Us

Mission statement

We promote the preservation and repurposing of Stratford’s Avon Crest hospital for future generations.

We oppose the unnecessary demolition of Avon Crest by Huron Perth Healthcare Alliance (HPHA).

We promote and advocate for the richness and diversity of Stratford’s built heritage.

We promote the re-use of existing buildings as the most ethical and environmentally responsible solution to new development.

We support the ongoing work of medical and administrative staff at HPHA.
