Investing in Youth & Education
We are vested in the trades. The trades offer exceptional career choices that keep Canada’s economy alive, and we invest in educating youth. As an example, we donated $100,000 in 2013 to help with the construction of the Algonquin Centre for Construction Excellence. This Ottawa-based facility will provide training for 600 construction professionals as well as space for thousands more studying in related programs.
We also recognize that education can make a significant difference in the lives of youth in other countries. The Makeka Khatoon Academy in Bangladesh, for example, was first established in 2006 with eight students. Modern Niagara directly invested in the school’s construction and operation, and it now has an enrollment of nearly 400 students. We have also supported the Tabitha Foundation Canada’s work to rebuild schools in Cambodia.
