OTTAWA, ON (March 30, 2017) – PCL Constructors Canada Inc. is proud to support the University of Ottawa Heart Institute Foundation. We pride ourselves on being construction leaders in our community and we lead not only by what we build, but by social responsibility which is one of PCL’s guiding principles, and community giving is at its core. As a result, PCL focuses philanthropic efforts in the areas of community development, health, education, and sustainability.

Kevin Skinner, Vice-President & District Manager said, “PCL’s major partnership in the University’s expansion project has become a symbol of one of our greatest values. Health plays a fundamental role in building and maintaining strong communities. PCL partners with organizations and various hospitals to provide employees with education for their well-being. By doing so, PCL is able to raise awareness of vital health topics in the community.”

The University of Ottawa Heart Institute has become a recognized international leader in cardiovascular care, treatment and research and plays a vital role in ensuring that many of the most critical components of world-class care are available. Donating funds towards the foundation helps to provide for much needed equipment, facilities, programs, research and education at the Institute and PCL’s intent is to constantly provide support to an exceptional team of health care professionals and advance cardiovascular care so that they may save lives everyday.

As we prepare to open the doors to our new building – the Heart Institute’s largest expansion in our 40 year history –  We are grateful for PCL’s support not only in the construction of the building but in the execution of our overall mission and ongoing fundraising campaign. Support like theirs will help to enable vital cardiovascular research, sustain education and prevention programs, and support world-class patient-care for years to come.”  said Jim Orban, President and CEO of theUniversity of Ottawa Heart Insitiute Foundation.
