Toronto, ON – May 5, 2021 – Campus Living Centres was recognized for overall business performance and sustained growth with the prestigious Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation for the seventh year in a row, and its first as a Platinum Club member. The 2021 Best Managed program award winners are amongst the best-in-class of Canadian owned and managed companies with revenues over $25 million demonstrating leadership in the areas of strategy, capabilities and innovation, culture and commitment, and financials to achieve sustainable growth.

Now in its 28th year, Canada’s Best Managed Companies remains one of the country’s leading business awards programs recognizing Canadian-owned and managed companies for innovative, world-class business practices. Every year, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies compete for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates the calibre of their management abilities and practices.

“Growing the business and continuing to exceed client expectations in the midst of a pandemic has been challenging, to say the least,” said Brian Freeman, Senior Vice President, Strategy & Development, Campus Living Centres. “While the focus was on keeping students safe and implementing rigorous protocols around COVID-19, we’ve worked closely with our institutional partners, both public and private, to consider what business could look like, post-COVID.”

Understanding that ‘business as usual’ will not resemble what it did pre-pandemic in the short-term, Campus Living Centres created virtual training modules, enhanced resources around student mental health, and collaborated closely with clients to ensure a safe service delivery model. While 2020 posed unique challenges and obstacles, student beds under the management portfolio increased by 25%. Brian adds, “This is a tribute to our team of dedicated and committed individuals who continue to go above and beyond in taking care of our clients and students, under exceptionally challenging circumstances.”

“To become a Best Managed Platinum Club winner is nothing short of remarkable. Their continued adaptability in an era of uncertainty sets the standard for how to overcome new barriers and demonstrate resilience at the highest levels,” said Peter Brown, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “This year’s Platinum Club winners are the Canadian cornerstone for outstanding business in 2021.”

Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel comprised of representatives from program sponsors in addition to special guest judges. 2021 Best Managed companies share commonalities that include (but are not limited to) enabling a remote workforce, making employee health a top priority, acting with an increased sense of purpose and social responsibility, and a significantly heightened focus on cash flow.

In a service driven business, managing student and staff anxiety, particularly at the onset of the pandemic, was overwhelming at times. In an effort to overcome those fears and anxieties, the Campus Living Centres’ senior team quickly pivoted towards developing and implementing COVID safety protocols. Working with the various public health units across the country, a comprehensive manual was developed that would become a living, breathing playbook for how to handle a potential outbreak within a building. “We’re so incredibly proud of all of our employees, as they navigated through a very challenging year. We accept this award on behalf of our 600 employees, as at the end of the day, they make it all possible”, said Michael Paul, Senior Vice President, Operations, Campus Living Centres.

“CIBC is especially proud to celebrate and recognize the winners of Canada’s Best Managed Companies in what has been a very challenging year”, said Dino Medves, Senior Vice President and Head, CIBC Commercial Banking. “These companies had to make tough decisions, adapt quickly to a new environment and most importantly, continue to innovate and invest for the future.

In partnership with Algonquin College, and Ottawa’s Rideauwood Addiction and Family Services, training included two full days: the first on ‘Understanding Substance Use and Harm Reduction’, and the second on ‘Motivational Interviewing Skills’. Presenters Amanda Neilson, Lisa Boulay, and Andrew Mendes from traveled Ottawa to deliver this training to over 30 student affairs professionals from CLC’s partner institutions, including Seneca College, Georgian College, George Brown College, Thompson Rivers University, as well as members of Campus Living Centres’ Off-Campus Housing portfolio.

In light of the recent legalization of cannabis in Canada, participants were able to partake in timely discussions around approaching student cannabis use on their campuses using a harm reduction approach. The teachings of harm reduction attempt to break down biases surrounded the negative stigma associated with substance use and addiction. “Trying to challenge these ideas that have become social norms requires a large team and many different levels of intervention, education, and change” said Amanda Neilson, Algonquin College’s Harm Reduction Consultant.

Campus Living Centres’ 2nd Annual Mental Health Symposium

On May 24th, 2018 Campus Living Centres hosted their second annual Symposium on Mental Health & the Student Experience. The event brought together 80 student affairs professionals from over 20 Canadian postsecondary institutions.

With the purpose of creating meaningful dialogue and exploring the role of student services in mental health, the symposium was a full day of professional development, featuring nine presenters and keynotes. Topics included responding to mental health related deaths on campus, assessing data from the National College Health Assessment, exploring the duty of care in student support, and reviewing challenges and opportunities within colleges and universities.

Our keynote presenter, Dr. Edward Connors has extensive experience working with First Nations communities across Canada, specifically in the areas of mental health and suicide prevention. In addition to the keynote, Dr. Connors hosted an interactive cultural sensitivity workshop that trained non-Indigenous service providers to better understand the worldview of Indigenous student. As postsecondary schools see an increase in Indigenous students, it is becoming more and more important for student affairs to understand the perceptions and experiences of Indigenous students.

Campus Living Centres would like to thank all of the attendees and speakers at the symposium. It was a day full of learning and discussion that brings us all one step further in our quest in supporting students.
