Working in community together
We have experience and established relationships with organizations supported by different levels of government and the City of Toronto. These programs provide services that support existing programs in the community. Our partnerships demonstrate our history of working in diverse communities and proactively seeking programs that support community residents.

In 2009, Tridel was the founding sponsor of the Building Opportunities for Life Today Program (“BOLT”) with the mission of connecting young people to careers in construction. The BOLT Foundation offers financial awards to support post-secondary education, provides access to skilled training opportunities, and hosts multiple events like Speak Outs and Days of Discovery to create awareness about the vast and diverse career opportunities in construction. Working with industry, government, and educational institutions, the BOLT Foundation aims to provide youth access to sustainable jobs in construction.

SaulGood Gift Company is a certified B-Corporation on a mission to deliver gift boxes featuring items that are locally made, small batches, and produced in the communities where they operate.
Learning of the high-quality and beautiful products procured by SaulGood, Tridel sought to evolve the homeowner welcome home gift to feature new items sourced locally, ethically, and sustainably. When thinking what the perfect addition to the gift to our homeowners would be and how to support small businesses, our minds went to the bespoke spice jars handcrafted by the Culinary Crew, a resident-led catering company based out of the Alexandra Park Community. Since working with the Culinary Crew, we’ve given over 1,500 homeowners the “spice of life”.
Toronto Community housing
Toronto Community Housing is the largest social housing provider in Canada and the second-largest in North America. By working together with Tridel, the City of Toronto, our residents, our neighbours, and community partners, we are transforming aging housing infrastructure to build better homes, better neighbourhoods, and a better Toronto for all.
Revitalization is creating vibrant communities with increased opportunities. It attracts investment in the form of new or improved amenities like schools, parks and community facilities. It also provides job and training opportunities for residents and creates opportunities for affordable homeownership.
Whirlpool Canada, as a leading appliance provider for Tridel communities, has collaborated with Tridel on a number of community initiatives. Throughout the years, Whirlpool has donated goods to support local resident-led business, participated in innovation summits, as well as other CSR and sustainability initiatives.

George Brown College
We are a strong supporter of education in the construction industry. We entered a partnership with George Brown College where we both had the common goal of developing the next generation of industry talent.
The Angelo DelZotto School of Construction Management, Ontario’s only four-year degree program in Construction Management, emerged so that together, Tridel and GBC may develop leading edge education programs and facilities in the construction industry.
