Redpath Sugar

95 Queen's Quay East, foot of Jarvis Street.

The Canada and Dominion Sugar refinery was the last industry built at Toronto harbour in 1959.
Founded in 1854 by Scottish immigrant John Redpath as Canada Sugar Refining Co. in Montreal.
Merged with Canada Sugar Refining Co.Ltd. of Chatham, Ontario in 1930 becoming
Canada and Dominion Sugar. Renamed Redpath Industries in 1973.
Acquired in 2005 by Tate & Lyle as Tate & Lyle Canada Ltd.
Financial difficulties of the parent Tate & Lyle of the UK resulted its sale April 21, 2007 to
American Sugar Refining (Domino brand sugar). The Redpath name was returned.
