Therme Group to expand global footprint with waterfront development in Toronto

Therme is a unique, all-season experience where people can boost their physical and mental health
– Robert Hanea

Global wellbeing organisation, Therme Group, has today announced plans for a CAN$350m (€236.3m, £201.8m, US$280.8m) waterfront wellbeing resort in Toronto, Canada, at Ontario Place.

Therme Canada Ontario Place will be a family-friendly experience with indoor and outdoor pools, waterslides and a wave pool, natural spaces to relax, sports performance and recovery services and botanical gardens.

Working with the Government of Ontario and City of Toronto, the group will contribute to the revitalisation of Ontario Place, to further Therme Group’s vision of bringing wellbeing to all.

Programming will include fun and healthy activities for all ages, and affordable wellness therapies to meet all needs. Healthy and sustainably produced food will also be available for guests to enjoy.

It's estimated that the site will take 24 months to build, once the approval and permit process is completed.

Dr Robert Hanea, CEO of Therme Group, said: “Therme is a unique, all-season experience: It’s a natural urban oasis where people can have fun, relax and unwind from their busy lives – boosting their physical and mental health.

“Bringing this offering to both the UK with Therme Manchester, and now Canada with Therme Canada | Ontario Place, will further progress us in our journey of bringing wellbeing to all.

“Through technology and engaging with the community, Therme Group and our partners will add a new architectural landmark to these cities, while boosting the wellbeing of the local community it serves.”

Ontario Place has historically been a destination for recreation, entertainment and leisure.

Therme CanadaOntario Place will carry on and improve these traditions through the planned creation of over eight acres of public spaces, including a free-access public beach, park areas, a canoe launch and realignment of the Martin Goodman trail.

Therme Canada Ontario Place is projected to create over 2,200 construction jobs, 800 full-time permanent positions and bring upwards of 1.6m visitors to Ontario Place every year – supporting the city and province’s tourism sectors and post-pandemic recovery.
