In building innovative property solutions for its major real estate projects, Canada Lands Company attempts to leave behind a lasting legacy for the local community. These can vary from a monument commemorating the heritage of the site, to a public green space, or a carefully planned interpretative walking tour. Local community support for these initiatives facilitates the company's activities and increases the financial and community value of the project.

CLC works together with the local community

The redevelopment of the 18-acre (7-hectare) Benny Farm property in Montréal, Québec began in the summer of 2002, after completing an innovative community-based consultation process.

CLC directs the environmental remediation of a property

In the heart of downtown Moncton, New Brunswick, CLC and its partners have transformed the former CN Railyard into an award-winning project, which includes the CN Sportsplexe recreation complex, Emmerson Business Park and Franklin Crossing residential community.

CLC preserves Canada’s military heritage

In projects such as Garrison Green and Garrison Woods in Calgary, Garrison Crossing in Chilliwack, B.C., and the Village at Griesbach in Edmonton, CLC has taken steps to ensure that the legacy of these former Canadian Forces bases is commemorated. Through street names, public parks and special monuments, CLC has honoured those who served their country and paid tribute to men and women who have served in conflict zones around the world.
