TELUS Day of Giving Event Was a Success at Canoe Landing Park

TELUS Day of Giving Event Was a Success at Canoe Landing Park

The Board of the CityPlace Residents’ Association (CPRA) thanks the 70+ staff contingent from Telus who participated in Telus Day of Giving ‘million hours of giving’ community service volunteering at Canoe Landing Park on Thursday, June 1, 2017.

The CPRA applauds the community-oriented caring of Telus and the hard work of the Telus staff on its Day of Giving! The CityPlace community clean up was made immeasurably more fun and efficient with the partnership of community leaders such as Telus.

Reports are that the volunteers mulched 75 trees, cleaned up over 4 hectares of space and collected about 200 lbs of garbage!

The CPRA is a non-partisan non-profit organization advocating for community betterment in the CityPlace neighbourhood, and in particular, its public spaces including the privately owned publicly accessible spaces (POPS), Linear Parks, and Canoe Landing Park.

We extend a deep thank you for Telus’ commitment to making our community clean and green!

Download June 13 Rail Deck Park postcard – for electronic distribution pdf version

Earlier this year, City Council approved taking the first steps to move the bold and ambitious plan forward for Rail Deck Park. Along with detailed implementation plans, cost estimates and growth-related revenue options, and more, the City has initiated an Official Plan Amendment process to formally review re-designating the space above the rail corridor as park space.

On June 13th, the first public consultation as part of the process is being hosted by City Planning – come out and share your thoughts on this critical and potentially game-changing space for our community:

Date: Tuesday June 13th
Time: 6-9pm
