Maple Leaf Purchases School Campus in Brockville, Ontario

Maple Leaf is pleased to announce its purchase of a beautifully landscaped 27.4-acre campus overlooking the St. Lawrence River in the historic Brockville area of Ontario, Canada. The freehold property was purchased for C$13 million (US$9.84 million). Originally the school campus was developed as St. Mary’s College, a preparatory school run by the Roman Catholic church. In the late 1960’s the property changed hands and housed a private Christian boarding school until 2007.
