The first new student residence in over 50 years, Mitchell Family House construction began in September 2018. The house is appropriately named in honour of the Mitchell family, many of whom attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony in June 2019.
The Mitchell family has had an enormous impact over five generations of active, generous, and leadership involvement at BCS and KHC, including a 12-year BCS chairmanship from the Honourable Justice Mitchell, BCS’26; transformative development success by the late Bradley Mitchell, BCS’53; passionate, effective philanthropy by Jane Mitchell Molson, KHC’58, and Eric Molson, BCS’54; and, most recently, the two pivotal headships (2012-2015 and 2019-2020) of William Mitchell, BCS’63. Just as the family has been a respected model of Townships family values for generations, so is the residence bearing their name.
Mitchell Family House officially opened its doors in September 2019, welcoming students for the 2019-2020 school year.
