Our History – In 1911 Dr. Herbert Bruce, a Toronto Physician, founded the Wellesley Hospital. Today, the Wellesley Institute continues to build on a century-long tradition of tackling the real health issues of Torontonians.
We wish to acknowledge this land on which the Wellesley Institute operates. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and the Mississaugas of the Credit. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
