With all the negative facts circulating today, we want to remind everyone that there are still wonderful things happening within mother nature. The canals in Italy are beginning to fill back up with wildlife, pollution has taken a drastic nosedive worldwide, and people are seeing sights in nature that haven’t been visible in years. Earth Day reminds us how important our treatment of our planet is.
Upper Canada is a proud member of this community and we take every step possible to ensure our actions positively affect the world we are in. While this Earth Day is a little different than normal, we encourage all our Newmarket residents and members of our community to celebrate our beautiful world inside their homes.
SUSTAINABILITY PROGRAM AT UPPER CANADA
In the most recent BOMA BEST awards, Upper Canada was proudly certified Gold in sustainable buildings certification. We were graded on energy, water, comfort, health and wellness, cleaning practices, waste removal and more. To ensure a gold certification, Upper Canada fully renovated our interior lighting to retrofit LED, washroom renovations to include energy efficient lighting, installed EV charging stations, increased our annual waste diversion, improved waste sorting facilities, and we introduced Green Matters, an annual tenant green recognition program.
ROOFTOP HONEY BEES
Upper Canada is also proud to be the home of 2 rooftop beehives, which have thrived in the lush gardens of Newmarket and have produced several cartons of honey. Upper Canada prides itself on playing an active role in the community and contributing to the sustainability efforts of our region. We look forward to having the bees return to our rooftop this summer.
