Ed Applebaum

With over 30 years’ industry experience, Ed is a leader in the design of modern, best practice seniors’ living, supportive housing, and continuing care facilities across Canada. A Principal of Montgomery Sisam Architects since 1999, Ed has shaped the firm’s innovative response to the technical and functional requirements of these environments by developing vibrant, progressive designs that exceed conventional standards, build community, and better the lives of all building residents.

Ed has collaborated extensively with the not-for-profit sector on many exemplary projects in health and long-term care, including Providence Healthcare, West Park Healthcare Centre, Kipling Acres and the George Street Revitalization. This work is complemented by his engagement with various private sector operators including Amica Mature Lifestyles and Baybridge Senior Living, developing state-of-the-art retirement homes and assisted living facilities. Ed is committed to delivering a seamless continuum of elder care that responds to and evolves with the latest industry research and best practice including memory care, biophilic design, Lean design and the Eden Alternative. These projects seek to set new urban design and programmatic benchmarks for integration within the fabric of their respective communities.

With this extensive knowledge and rich body of work, Ed has been invited to participate in critical conversations surrounding best practice, research and innovation in care. He has collaborated with both the Ontario Association of Non-Profit Homes and Services for Seniors, the Ontario Long-Term Care Association as well as key CSA committees to develop and define critical industry standards for long-term care.

As a LEED Accredited Professional and active member of the Ontario Building Envelope Council, Ed prioritizes sustainable design in all his projects. With his continuing leadership as a board director of the Toronto Construction Association, Ed maintains close links with industry leaders to stay abreast of emerging trends and developments in both the local and national construction markets.
