Integrated with the neighbouring Canoe Landing Park, the Canoe Landing Centre will include two elementary schools, a community centre and child care centre. Bishop Macdonell Catholic and Jean Lumb Public Schools will each serve 550 children from kindergarten to Grade 8. Canoe Landing Child Care Centre will serve a total of 54 children, from infants to preschoolers.

Notable features of the facility include a green roof, shared gym, separate outdoor play areas for each age group and numerous energy efficiency elements within a modern, three-storey structure.

The site, formerly known as Block 31, is located at the corner of Fort York Boulevard and Brunel Court in the CityPlace neighbourhood of Toronto. It sits adjacent to Canoe Landing Park, in the area referred to as the Railway Lands. In 1992, Canadian National Railways (CNR) transferred ownership of Block 31 to the City of Toronto. The City has since entered into an agreement with the TDSB and the TCDSB to develop the site. Development levies were used to fund the construction of this facility.
