CCA is pleased to present Gateman-Milloy with the 2016 CCA Community Leader Award for its support of today’s and tomorrow’s construction industry and its local community.
Based in Kitchener, Ontario, one of Gateman-Milloy’s corporate goals is to be active members in its local communities, at all levels. By providing advice and consultations, sponsorships, employment opportunities, in-kind donations, and volunteering, Gateman-Milloy is not only succeeding at business, but helping others succeed as well.
Since 2009, it has been industry partner with Conestoga College’s Heavy Equipment Operator program advisory committee. To assist the program, Gateman-Milloy continues to provide equipment and materials for training, job site tours, networking opportunities, and industry-related advice.
Gateman-Milloy has also set up an endowed academic grant with the College for their Civil Engineering Technology or Architecture Construction Engineering Technology programs. Since the program’s inception, it has also benefited by hiring 10 of the highly-skilled graduates from the program.
Other causes that Gateman-Milloy is involved with include the local Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) and the rare Charitable Research Reserve. In 2016 they received the ‘Community Builder’ award from the Grand Valley Construction Association for their contributions to Innisfree House, a hospice that provides comfort, care and closure to patients through their end-of-life journey.
