Steven Salm SickKids Innovator



From one big city to the next, Steven came to Toronto from his hometown, New York City, as a trendsetting foodie and passionate philanthropist. Steven serves as the President of the Chase Hospitality Group, a leader in the Toronto dining scene, including restaurants such as Colette Grand Café and Kasa Moto, popular among socialites and young professionals.

Steven’s commitment to SickKids has gone beyond the Innovators Program to support the ‘Chase An Idea Grant’ initiative, where proceeds of select menu items fund the development of new, groundbreaking ideas that would not otherwise receive funding in the Centre for Brain and Mental Health. For Steven, it’s never about one thing or one initiative, but rather helping youth in every way possible.
