Partnership Working and ESG

  1. Donated unused retail space for the creation of a Breast Health Clinic, which opened in Sept 2015. Space was not attractive to local retailers for a variety of reasons and had sat idle since 2008.  Donation was valued at CAD $1.85M, for tax purposes.
  2. In late 2013, a major issue arose due to defective copper pipe and valves. Project Co worked extensively with multiple parties to have the issue fully resolved with no impact (financial or otherwise) to Project Co.  Over 2,000 feet of pipe and 100+ valves had to be replaced, with minimal disruption.
  3. Donations have been made to local charities since inception.
