Morguard Bees in Ottawa Giving Back to Community

​Morguard understands the importance of protecting bees. One third of what we eat relies on the pollination of bees. In our ongoing commitment to sustainability, we partnered with Alvéole, a company that focuses on how beekeeping can be a simple, people-focused initiative to help build ecological awareness through urban beekeeping and workshops with businesses and schools.

Through this partnership, Morguard has established beehives, along with naturalized gardens and bee hotels, at 13 Morguard-managed properties. Two upcoming beehives will also be set up at Coquitlam Centre in British Columbia for Spring 2021.

Ottawa currently has 10 urban beehives across 9 properties in operation. These bees can visit trees, plants and flowers within a 5 km radius of their hive. An urban hive can produce about 10 kg of honey each year.

To celebrate our second year of working to build more ecological communities, we recently gifted the honey from the beehives to the tenants at our Ottawa sites. We also donated several cases of honey to the Parkdale Food Centre, a not-for-profit charity that helps build healthy neighbourhoods through good food and social connections.

Morguard’s bees initiative is part of our Sustainable Morguard program that focuses on the environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) issues that affect the communities where we operate. To learn more about Sustainable Morguard, please visit www.morguard.com/sustainability.
