Community investment

On August 16, FortisBC presented the Reach Child and Youth Development Society with $10,000 for their Building for Children Together project. This venture will see that a new child development centre is built to ensure children with special needs have a safe and accessible location for support.

In addition to the resource centre, a separate donation was presented on the same day to the Rotary Club of Ladner, and will go towards a brand new water park located in Memorial Park. The upgrade is critical for this park due to safety issues, including an old concrete floor surface.

The water park is directly across from the new Reach child development centre, and the families it supports will be frequent users of the park.

Both the Reach Foundation and Rotary Club of Ladner have been tirelessly raising funds for their respective projects. FortisBC is honored to support these organizations that are helping build safe and caring communities within our service areas.
