On June 16, 2022, Skyline Group of Companies was awarded the 2022 Community Builder award at the 195th annual Guelph Awards of Excellence hosted by the Guelph Chamber of Commerce.
The award recognizes an outstanding business or organization that has a positive impact on the business, community, and social well-being within the city of Guelph.
Skyline was recognized for its investment in a 32-unit permanent supportive housing project in partnership with Kindle Communities and Guelph Community Health Centre (Guelph CHC), among its other community initiatives in Guelph.
This supportive housing project, which was launched in October 2020, will provide 32 living spaces and 24/7 on-site support services to community members in need. Skyline Apartment REIT has donated land for the project, which will be developed in the Onward Willow neighbourhood of Guelph. SkyDev will be providing construction oversight for the project.
R. Jason Ashdown, Co-Founder & Chief Sustainability Officer, Skyline Group of Companies, remarked on the award win:
“Skyline is honoured to be recognized for our community initiatives in our hometown of Guelph—especially a project to help those who are facing housing insecurity, a challenge that is becoming more prevalent coast to coast.
“As business owners with a national footprint, we feel a responsibility to invest in the communities in which we exist, and that includes investing in social service programs that support community needs.
“It will take strong synergies and collaboration between the private sector, the public sector, all levels of government, as well as service provider agencies in order to eradicate homelessness. Skyline is proud to offer its land, resources and expertise to help with the homelessness situation in the City of Guelph and beyond.
“A huge shoutout to all of our staff and business partners who have put forward their time, resources, expertise, and financial contributions to help with this important project. We hope our actions will inspire others to help in any way they can with this worthy cause.”
