Sifton Properties Limited was named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies in 2015 for excellence in business performance, achieving Platinum Club member status which is the highest achievement level available. The Best Managed program recognizes Canadian-owned and managed companies with revenues over $10 million demonstrating strategy, capability and commitment to achieve sustainable growth.
“Best Managed Platinum winners are amongst the elite Canadian-owned and managed companies. They have a proven track record of outstanding leadership, business performance and sustained growth,” said Peter Brown, Partner, Deloitte and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program.
Over the past 93 years, Sifton has gone from building one home to developing some of Ontario’s most new and innovative communities. Today Sifton owns and manages over 3,100 residential and retirement living rental units, 97% of which they built themselves; 750,000 sq. ft. of commercial space; and has 36 active land development projects. Sifton’s commitment to growth is never-ending and they are now embarking on one of the most progressive projects in their history, West 5.
As a recognized leader in community development and construction, Sifton continually raises the bar for their industry. They recently unveiled London’s first Net Zero home as a pilot project to test some technologies to be used at West 5, which will be the most sustainable, energy efficient community in Ontario. Sifton’s new net zero Corporate Office, opening late 2016, will be the first of many net zero properties at West 5.
Sifton’s dedication to providing outstanding customer service and quality continues to be recognized through many consumer choice and builder awards. Sifton was recognized as the 2015 London Home Builders Association (LHBA) Builder of the Year which is the 3rd time in the past 5 years they have won this award. In addition, Sifton has been a multi-year winner in the Best of London Awards in the following categories; retirement residence, apartment rentals, and home builder.
Sifton’s commitment to the communities in which they develop is second to none. Twenty-five years ago, they created the Sifton Family Foundation whose grants and contributions have touched thousands of lives over that time. Between Sifton Properties and the Family Foundation, donations were made to over 65 charities last year alone.
