Community Initiatives

We Believe that Doing Good is Good for Business.

Community building is ingrained in Skyline's business philosophy. We believe that the communities we serve are the backbone of our success, and giving back is part of our core purpose. Our robust community outreach program entails everything from staff volunteer days and food drives to a university scholarship program.

To find out about our latest charitable and community initiatives, check out our blog posts below.

Be Part of a Community

Our commitment to developing strong communities is reflected in how we manage our buildings, the charities we support, and the example we set as a community partner.

Social Activities

To help you get to know your neighbours, our Resident Managers host some pretty cool events and activities, many at the suggestion of our residents. Experience summer fun fairs, BBQs, spa days, cards, Bingo, exercise classes, scrap-booking, movie nights and more! Skyline Living offers a variety of opportunities to connect and enjoy life.

Charitable Giving

Skyline’s robust community outreach program entails everything from staff volunteer days and food drives to sponsoring local sports teams and a university scholarship program. Our efforts to build strong communities are never more evident than when our residents come together and give back. Year over year, we have seen increased participation in our resident charitable initiatives, including the FRPO Spring Hope Food Drive, Skyline’s Warm Winter Clothing Drive, and our annual Earth Day Clean-Up.

Environmental Initiatives

We are lessening our environmental impact by choosing sustainable materials and responsible vendors, updating building fixtures and appliances, participating in reuse and recycling initiatives, and using energy more efficiently. By practicing Environmental Stewardship, Skyline Living is committing to preserving our planet for the future.

Safety & Security

This is your home: where you eat, sleep, watch TV, study, relax and share time with loved ones. Above all else, you must feel safe in your own home. That’s why Skyline’s caring Resident Managers live on-site. Since it’s their home too, they are personally invested and take a great deal of pride in the property and the well-being of their residents. All Skyline buildings are equipped with security measures, but the largest contributor to a safe environment is our own residents. By simply coming out and getting to know your neighbours, you are contributing to a safe and intimate community atmosphere.
