Most of all, we hope to encourage you to ask 'what's possible?' when creating a place for people to come together to socialize, relax, play, learn, and share.

Carscadden Stokes McDonald Architects Inc. | Visit website | E-Bike Sponsor

Carscadden Logotypepluswatermark Web

E Bike Sponsor

Hi there. Nice to meet you. We're Carscadden Architects. We do mostly public work. You know: swimming pools, arenas, works yards, park buildings. We do some private work for select developers, but we're choosy - fit is really-important for us. For us, it's about values-alignment. Mostly that's to do with our studio size. We've worked for 20 years to protect the size of our studio so that we can really focus on the work and the people we care about, because in the end, architecture is about people: the people we work with, the people it's for, and the people who inherit it. That's what really drives us in the studio; we can't imagine doing architecture any other way.

We do architecture: we provide full service architectural services to public and private clients.

We have a side-hustle as cycling champions and really believe that communities should be built around active transportation.

Canadian Parks and Recreation Association (CPRA)  | Visit website

Cpra Web  

The Canadian Parks and Recreation Association (CPRA) is a national organization dedicated to realizing the full potential of parks and recreation as a major contributor to community health and vibrancy. Membership includes the 13 provincial and territorial parks and recreation associations and their extensive networks of service providers in over 90% of Canadian communities.

CPRA collaborates with a host of other national organizations operating in the recreation, physical activity, environmental, facilities, sport, public health, crime prevention and social services arenas.

Over the course of its 60-year history, CPRA has become a credible and strong national leader in our sector. In addition to our advocacy on the benefits of parks and recreation, we provide our members with the information, resources and the professional development they can use to make a difference in their own community. Through broad-based community involvement, we find solutions to social challenges, influence policy direction and generate momentum towards community quality of life.

The Canadian Parks and Recreation Association (CPRA) has secured Government of Canada funding via the Youth Employment and Skills Strategy (YESS) Program to support job placements for youth, particularly those facing barriers to employment. Officially entitled the CPRA Youth Employment Experience, this program will provide direct financial support (via 100% wage subsidies) to local governments, allowing them to offer placements that will focus on youth gaining a broad range of skills, knowledge and experience in the community parks and recreation sector. Not only will this program provide handson training, but each youth will be paired with a mentor at their place of employment to provide an immersive experience. Via this program, local governments will be able to hire additional youth to advance their parks and recreation priorities.

Wishbone Site Furnishings | Visit website

 Wishbonelogo  

Wishbone Site Furnishings all started in 1995 with one primary objective: to design and build maintenance-free, municipal grade furniture using recycled plastic lumber and recycled metals. We have established ourselves, through the years and thousands of products later, as the industry leader in the site furnishings market with cities and municipalities across North America attesting to the fact that our products do exactly what they were designed to do.

Our success stems from our ability to adapt, create and deliver exceptional products that meet our customer's expectations and the public's demand for environmental stewardship. We have become a strong force and resource for those inquiring, acquiring, and building products using recycled plastic lumber.

At Wishbone, benches are so much more than "just benches". They facilitate relaxation and encourage us to sit and experience and enjoy our surroundings. Our benches enhance the look and purpose of a location with style and comfort. By blending sustainable and recycled materials with innovative designs, we create durable outdoor furnishings that are as functional as they are beautiful. Sit on a Wishbone bench and you'll want to stay a little longer.
