The Breathe Green initiative was launched on July 7, 2007, making Sherway Gardens the first shopping centre in Ontario to create a property-wide smoke-free environment. Breathe Green creates an improved environment for both shoppers and tenants by promoting and supporting a healthy lifestyle that eliminates exposure to second-hand smoke while on Sherway Gardens' property.

The Heather Crowe Award is a provincial award recognizing groups and individuals who have made considerable contributions toward educating people about the dangers of second hand smoke, and promoting a smoke-free Ontario. The award is named for Heather Crowe, who developed lung cancer from second-hand smoke during her years of work as a waitress. Her story is relayed in public service announcements that were shown regularly on television. At the age of 61, Crowe's passing came one week before the Smoke Free Ontario Act took effect.

Sherway Gardens is owned and managed by Cadillac Fairview, one of North America's largest investors, owners and managers of commercial real estate. With a portfolio valued at over $15 billion, the company and its affiliates own and manage over 83 properties, including some of Canada's landmark developments.
