[Guelph, ON – December 3, 2020]

Skyline Group of Companies has proudly won an award from the Federation of Rental Housing Providers of Ontario (FRPO) for 2020.

This year, Skyline won in the category of Community Service Award of Excellence.

This award recognizes a company that has gone above and beyond to give back to the communities they operate in. Skyline was judged on its involvement in its communities through volunteer activities, charitable contributions, and other service projects or events.

“This year, Skyline focused its submission on our Skyline Community Hub, as well as our first-ever Fore-Go Golf for Youth Mental Health fundraising campaign,” said R. Jason Ashdown, Co-Founder and Chief Sustainability Officer, Skyline Group of Companies.

“Both of these initiatives have made a large contribution to helping provide basic needs, and mental health support programs, to children, youth, and families in our communities.”

Ashdown stated that the recognition served as a credit to each of Skyline’s nearly-1000 staff across Canada who stand behind the company’s vision for community service.

“It is our goal—and our responsibility—as a business to not only give back ourselves, but to inspire and influence our captive audience of tenants, staff, investors, suppliers, business partners, and community partners to do the same,” he said.

Winners were announced on Thursday, December 3, 2020 at FRPO’s annual M.A.C. Awards Gala, which was held virtually for 2020. As always, the competition for awards was tough, with many provincial, national, and multi-national rental housing providers competing for the win.

Skyline Group of Companies is proud to be recognized on this national platform as among the best in the Canadian rental housing industry.

Additionally, Skyline Group of Companies was a top-3 finalist for Company Culture Award of Excellence.

Skyline Living was a top-3 finalist for the categories of Customer Service Award of Excellence and Resident Manager of the Year – Vicki Peterson, Sault Ste. Marie, ON.

With its recent win, Skyline is now a FRPO M.A.C. award recipient for nine years in a row. Since its first submission to the FRPO Awards in 2009, Skyline has won 21 FRPO awards and received 36 Top-3 nominations.

Skyline would like to recognize and congratulate all winners and Top-3 finalists, including Rhapsody Property Management Services, Sifton Properties, Hazelview Properties, Wyse Meter Solutions, Killam Apartment REIT, CAPREIT, Minto Properties, and RealStar Management Partnership for their award wins in their respective categories.
