The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation & Linwood Homes

Linwood Homes has been working together with the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation since 2008, and the team completed their first-ever cottage prize in early 2009. Since then, 38 Early-Bird Cottage Prizes have been completed and awarded with several more in the works to be awarded throughout 2021-2022.

Many of the cottage prizes from previous years have won National Homebuilding Awards, including the recent 2019 CHBA National Awards for Housing Excellence winner, ‘The Cavendish.’ This model won in the Detached Homes – Under 1,800 sq. ft category. This year, an exclusive cottage lottery means so much to Linwood Homes.

Each of the three Grand Prize Cottages is built fully custom and they truly embody the cottage country atmosphere – giving the lucky winners the opportunity to live the recreational lake lifestyle that so many enjoy here in Ontario.

The Impact

With all of the exciting prizes this year, it is important to reflect on the ultimate impact the lottery program has on funding cancer research. Cancer remains the number one cause of death in Canada and the program’s goal is to Conquer Cancer in Our Lifetime. The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation is the largest of its kind in Ontario and it is one of the top 5 cancer research centers on a global scale. Since 1996, the home lotteries have raised over $498 million that has been granted to Princess Margaret Cancer Centre for research and care.

Linwood Homes is honored to be a part of such an important and impactful cause. Not only do the prize cottages give the Grand Prize winners a chance to enjoy the recreational cottage life that so many dream of, but they also greatly contribute to funding cancer research. The cottages are each custom designed and built by Linwood Homes, with interiors by Lakeshore Designs. Over the years the cottages have become so popular that this year, they now have a lottery all on their own – and we could not be more excited.
