The Dean family donation was celebrated on May 29 at the Casa Loma Campus with Brookfield Partners Foundation president Alan Dean; his wife Kathy Kinnear; dean of the Centre for Construction, Engineering and Technology Adel Esayed; chair of the Angelo DelZotto School of Construction Management Clint Kissoon; George Brown College Foundation president Cindy Gouveia; and Candice O'Donnell, manager of student awards.

"George Brown College provided our children with a great education and a support network that has allowed them to flourish in their desired careers. We are very pleased to give back to a school that does so much for its students," Dean said.

"We are thrilled to work alongside Alan and Kathy," Esayed added.

"They are partnering with us to build a better Toronto, one that helps people from all neighbourhoods achieve success."
