Upper Canada Mall is committed to sustainability and proud of the following green initiatives:
Upper Canada Mall is equipped with seven compactors where all cardboard, paper, bottles, cans and plastics are recycled.
Sustainable Buildings Certification
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 and our washrooms to include energy-efficient lighting, installed EV charging stations, increased our annual waste diversion, improved waste sorting facilities, and introduced Green Matters – an annual tenant green recognition program.
Rooftop Honey Bees
Upper Canada is also proud to be the home of two 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.
