Habitat for Humanity Women Build 2019

In May 2019, Vestacon took part in the 10th Women Build for Habitat for Humanity GTA that took place in Scarborough, Ontario. Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit housing organization who mobilize communities to help working, lower income families by building affordable homeownership. Since founded over 360 homes have been built, creating new opportunities for families, including 1,300 children. Vestacon has participated since 2011, and we are proud to be a part of building safer and stronger communities. This year Team Vestacon raised $10,230 to Habitat for Humanity.

The CP24 CHUM Christmas Wish program has become one of the largest distributors of toys to children in need in the Greater Toronto Area. The program also provides financial assistance to hundreds of agencies, ensuring that hundreds of thousands of children across the GTA enjoy a holiday experience. With the help of The Royal Bank of Canada, Air Miles, as well as the generous donations from their loyal viewers and listeners, the CP24 CHUM Christmas Wish in conjunction with Toronto Social Services assisted hundreds of thousands of people in need through toy and financial support.

At Vestacon we support the toy drive in a creative way. Every year our Toronto office staff draws a name of a co-worker, Secret Santa style, and then buys a toy that reminds them of that person. We then collect the toys and everyone gets to guess which toy matches who in the office. After that the toys are donated.

Culture

Building relationships starts at home, at Vestacon we work on our communication and collaboration skills every day.

At Vestacon we believe that a collaborative everyday work life build better teams. With catered lunches four days per week, a break area with a foosball table and a dartboard, we offer our team social luncheons and a chance to catch a break away from their computer or phone. Our Principals practices an open-door policy, giving the team a chance to discuss projects, ideas and everyday operations without struggling to book time for it. This, we feel, is a great way to keep the Vestacon team informed on developments in projects, as well as other matters that Vestacon is involved in and that requires our attention and action.
