Corporate Social Responsibility

We are deeply connected to our communities where we strive to consistently create a positive experience for our residents, their families and our employees. With a high-performing team and an award-winning workplace culture, we aim to never lose sight of our vision—to awaken our communities to the positive possibilities of life’s next chapters.

Our corporate social responsibility initiatives are grouped as follows:

Social
Governance
Environmental

Social

We are strongly committed to our communities and give back in a number of profound ways, which plays an important role in our ongoing activities involving team members, residents, families and members of the local communities where Sienna operates.
 

Governance

As one of Canada’s leading providers of seniors’ residences, we are committed to maintaining the highest ethical standards through a strong governance framework and an experienced Board of Directors.


Diversity & Inclusion

We believe that an important factor in our company’s success is how well we embrace and adapt to different ideas. At Sienna, we are proud to bring together a multitude of perspectives, and are committed to being a leader in diversity, which includes, but is not limited to, gender, sexual preference, disability, age, ethnicity, culture and religion.

We are a leader in gender diversity and have a well-rounded, independent and experienced Board of Directors, which adheres to the highest standards of governance.

With half of our board being comprised of female leaders and 60% of our executive team being female, Sienna is among the Top 5 companies listed on the TSX when it comes to gender diversity.

Environmental

At Sienna, we have been working diligently to establish building operations that reduce our environmental footprint. We continuously look for ways to make our operations more sustainable and focus on updating our infrastructure through key initiatives that include increased water conservation and decreased energy consumption.

  • Increasing water conservation
    Retirement and long-term care communities typically have a high rate of water usage. Finding ways to conserve water is therefore an important sustainability initiative.

    Flow Management Devices (FMD), a water-saving technology, have been installed in a number of our properties on a case study basis and will be rolled out across additional communities in the coming years. Based on initial results, this technology can save up to 20% in water consumption in our communities.

 

  • Decreasing energy consumption
    We have started a lighting retrofit program, replacing older infrastructure with efficient LED lighting systems. We also continuously update older appliances, fixtures and equipment with more energy-efficient alternatives and whenever possible, participate in ENERGY STAR programs.
