Transforming Care... Transforming the Patient Experience
Over the past 20 years, there has been steady growth in the oncology programs at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.
To continue to meet the demand for our services and to improve the patient experience, the cancer centre is renovating.
Patients and visitors will notice changes in:
Areas Under Renovation
- Public staircase in the Lobby is closed. We ask that you take the elevators to and from your appointment. We do not monitor other staircases and we ask that you do not use them except in an emergency situation. We apologize for any inconvenience.
- Automatic Swing door has been closed. Manual Revolver and adjacent sliding door is still operational and available for use.
- Temporary platform, scaffolding, hoarding and structural columns have been erected – work within these areas has started.

Main Floor Lobby
Starting in May 2017, the main floor of the Princess Margaret will be renovated to make this area more inviting for patients, families and visitors. To minimize disruption, renovations will be done in phases. The cancer centre will continue to operate as usual, but certain areas on the main floor will be closed off at different times as the work progresses.

Renovations to Clinics
The 5th Floor of Princess Margaret will be renovated to accommodate an expanded, relocated Gynecology Clinic, and to create a permanent location for a new Palliative Clinic.
Patients affected will be notified about changes to clinic locations.
