Cheryl Hickey Partnership, 2022

Living Better with Cheryl Hickey:
A Modern Family Home Makeover

At the heart of everything we do, we want to empower people, families, and communities to start living better. From levelling up your forever home to engaging with your community, our mission is to help you build your future.

With our latest partnership, we’re proud to help SickKids Foundation in their fight to build a new hospital in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).

Alair Ontario is thrilled to launch an official partnership with Canadian TV host, media personality, and passionate community volunteer, Cheryl Hickey to help SickKids Foundation.

During this partnership, Alair and Cheryl Hickey are excited to share a docuseries chronicling the design, planning, and total transformation of her home renovation in Toronto. We invite you to Cheryl’s family home, where you can catch an exclusive look at the home renovation process and see modern renovation trends with industry-leading design and trade partners based in the GTA, many of which service Canada and beyond.

Though the series shows you a fun, exciting, and emotional look at renovations in GTA, we also aim to support an organization that Cheryl and Alair both care deeply about. The video series culminates in a fundraising effort for SickKids. In addition, Alair’s Canadian partners have collectively pledged to donate $100,000 over the next five years to SickKids Foundation.

Our mission is to help others live happier, healthier, and more productive lives, and with our national charity commitment, we aim to help families in Canada believe Living Better Starts Here®.
