Thank you to our Community and Corporate Supporters

Brookfield Residential 

Brookfield Residential is a company that knows how to give back. “Any company, if they’re doing the right things,” says CEO & President, Alan Norris, “should be engaged in the community where they do business, and they should be actively engaged in doing that and sharing that with their employees. It’s important for every employee to know what we stand for and what our value system is as a company.”
In 2008, while operating under the name of Carma Developers, Carma employees from across North America came to Calgary for one day to build the Wellspring Calgary facility.  Thanks to their hard work, sweat equity and the generous financial support of Brookfield Residential of the gift of this home, Carma House, the Wellspring Calgary home-like centre, opened to serve members in May 2009. “That build day certainly was the pivotal point of how Carma / Brookfield Residential got introduced to Wellspring Calgary,” affirms David Allan, President, Calgary Land, Brookfield Residential Properties Inc. “But that day is only one day in many years of history we now enjoy with Wellspring Calgary.”
We salute you, Brookfield Residential, for your long-standing support and adoption of Wellspring Calgary! Thanks to you, no one has to fa
ce cancer alone!
