The 2021 Minto Dream Home Naming Contest
After much anticipation, we finally have a name for this year’s Minto Dream Home for CHEO – the Caraway. Congratulations to the winner of our naming contest, Daniel Campbell.
This year’s contest saw 1,419 people submitting a range of unique name ideas – everything from the Nova to the Lingonberry.
Thank you, Daniel, for a name that parallels our lust for simplicity, richness and elegance in design while also reflecting a place to plant roots, grow and leave our cares behind – a feeling that many of us are looking for at this time. We love it and we hope Ottawa does too!
Over 20 Years of Dreams.
For decades, we have been the proud builder of the Minto Dream Home, the grand prize of the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) Dream of a Lifetime Lottery. Since 2001, the Lottery raised over $73 million to give children a fighting chance and change the lives of thousands of families who rely on the care provided by CHEO each year. The Minto Dream Home is a chance for us to design something beautiful while helping keep our community happy, healthy, and hopeful.
The 2020 Minto Dream Home
The 2020 Minto Dream Home is boho-chic, an inherently contradicting style that reflects both global art history (the boho) and sophistication (the chic), with layers of organic and earthy texture. Drawing from Spanish, Middle Eastern and Moorish influences, the Bohemian interior is shaped by an eclectic style that encourages you to fill your home with the things that bring you joy, creating a home environment that is uniquely you.
Dream in Mahogany, Manotick
The Minto Dream Home returned to Mahogany, embodying the quintessential Manotick charm you’ve come to expect with natural features including the ponds, parks, river and woodlot. The Bohemian with its stunning exterior stone, wraparound porch supported by square columns, and spectacular gables, authentically reflects the architecture of historic Manotick and Watson's Mill - making the Bohemian feel right at home in Mahogany.

We believe that a community is more than a place to live - it's a place to grow and thrive. And, after creating many of Ottawa's most beloved neighbourhoods, we understand what families need for their overall health and wellbeing, like social connections, outdoor enjoyment, access to amenities, and nearby schools.
