Where does parking money go? »

Every dollar you spend on parking normally funds life-changing and life-saving research and patient care at Sunnybrook.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions placed on visitors at Sunnybrook, we lost revenues associated with patient and visitor parking in the 2020/2021 fiscal year. As a result, we were unable to allocate parking funds to support research and direct patient care during this time.

For 2021/2022 fiscal year, COVID-19 restrictions eased and we were able to generate $1.1 million in net revenue for patient and visitor parking which we used to support research.

For 2022/2023 fiscal year, we have seen an increase in volumes; although not at the same level as we were experiencing prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, patient and visitor parking generated $4.3 million in net revenue. Of these revenues, $2.8 million was used to support research, and $1.5 million was used to support direct patient care.
