Commitment to Community
Supporting healthier, vibrant communities.
At Minto, we consider ourselves a leader in community building.
But there's more to being a good corporate citizen than just what we bring to our customers. We recognize our corporate and social responsibility to the City of Ottawa as a whole — and as a result, we give back to the community in several different ways. We focus on the key areas of health care, the arts, the environment, education and sports to allow the city to grow and evolve.
We proudly support a number of initiatives that help our communities thrive, and our residents and homeowners live better lives. Here are just a few examples.
Minto is proud to be an Official Sponsor of Ottawa 2017, to help position Ottawa as THE place to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Canada's confederation. Join us for a year of celebration in the nation's Capital, with twelve full months of big, bold, immersive and moving experiences that will complement national celebrations and annual events and festivals.
CHEO Dream of a Lifetime Lottery
Since 2001, Minto has been proud to support the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) by partnering with the CHEO Foundation to provide the Grand Prize Dream Home for the CHEO Dream of a Lifetime Lottery.
Every year, Minto, along with our valued trade partners, consultants and suppliers, come together to design, build and decorate the Dream Home with one goal in mind – to create a grand prize that captures the dreams of everyone who visits the home, to help raise as much as we can to support the kids at CHEO. We thrive on the challenge of making each home better than the last, year after year.
So many of us at Minto have personal stories about what CHEO means to us, and it makes us proud to be helping grow strong, healthy kids in our community by supporting such a worthy cause.
Minto Recreation Complex
In the fall of 2014, the Minto Recreation Complex opened its doors to the residents of Barrhaven. Since then, this 160,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility has become a hub for the community, offering a multitude of fitness and recreational activities for all ages and abilities.
Minto is proud to be associated with the City of Ottawa's Community Champions Program; a program that partners with businesses and organizations here in Ottawa for sponsorships of local programs and services. It's because of this program that the Minto Recreation Complex, and many others facilities across the city, are here for us all to share and enjoy.
