Jill Dunlop, associate minister of children and women’s issues, toured a Tribute Communities high-rise condo construction site at 77 Mutual St. in Toronto on Oct. 28.
 
She was at the site to highlight opportunities for women in the skilled trades and film a video for Skills Ontario/National Skilled Trades and Apprenticeship Week.
 
RESCON VP Andrew Pariser attended the event. RESCON would like to thank associate minister Dunlop for focusing on getting more young people, women and minorities interested in the skilled trades and construction.
 

 
“Minister Dunlop loves to tour residential construction sites and interact with RESCON members, including Tribute Communities,” said Pariser. “Like the minister, we at RESCON are committed to improving pathways into the trades by promoting careers in construction to youth.”
 
While Tribute Communities is recognized for building houses, homes and condos, it also builds communities through investments that matter most to Ontarians. This includes prioritizing diversity, equity and inclusion; an emphasis on training and apprenticeship; and direct investment into communities.
 
Tribute gave $510,000 to Daily Bread Food Bank's COVID-19 hunger relief fund this past spring. Thanks to Tribute Communities, 15,000 families accessed an emergency hamper containing three days worth of food during the peak of the crisis.
 
The company’s support also helped the food bank pilot a new program through which more than 25,000 emergency food hampers were delivered directly to the homes of seniors and vulnerable people who were unable to leave their homes due to the pandemic, and it enabled Daily Bread to build 16 new food programs in the height of the crisis that are continuing to support high-need communities.
