Aaniin Community Centre and Library
Aaniin Community Centre and Library is a new community centre currently under construction in south-east Markham at Middlefield Road and 14th Avenue. It is a 122,000-square-foot, fully accessible LEED Gold facility located on more than 13 acres of land. It is scheduled to open in 2017.
The facility has been designed to meet the community’s needs based on extensive community consultation. It features a series of indoor and outdoor gathering spaces that allow for cultural expression, quiet contemplation, physical activity and opportunities to learn and to engage with other community members.
The name “Aaniin,” pronounced [ah-nee], means “hello” in Ojibway. It was chosen to welcome Markham’s many diverse communities, to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation in 2017 and in honour of our First Nation’s people.
