ARGO Tees Off in Support of United Way

For the second year in a row, ARGO was one of the proud sponsors of the 30th Annual Oakville Mayor’s Golf Tournament in support of United Way Halton & Hamilton.

The tournament, which took place at the Glen Abbey Golf Club on June 20, raised $127,000 which will go towards improving lives locally in Oakville. From removing barriers for easier access to counselling and support, and after-school programs for children and youth, to providing access to affordable and nutritious food to families in need, the United Way is making a positive difference in the Oakville community.

Habitat for Humanity

ARGO, along with other Mayfield area developers, collaborated with the town of Caledon and Habitat for Humanity to help create affordable housing for well-deserving families.

With ten townhouses built so far and another six to be completed by 2019, we are proud to support Habitat for Humanity and honoured to be a part of bringing people and communities together.

In December 2017 we celebrated a ribbon cutting ceremony that welcomed the first 4 families moving in – watch the video below to see what the Mayor of Caledon had to say and the reactions of the families seeing their new homes for the first time.


From Concept to Completion at Stephen Lewis

As part of a community mapping class project, the students at Stephen Lewis Secondary School in Peel Region discovered an opportunity to develop unused green-space right in their own school yard. Through discussion and brainstorming, they came together with a theoretical design for an outdoor amphitheatre that ARGO was happy to help bring to fruition. Best of all, the project became part of Ontario’s EcoSchools program, redeveloping our educational institutions with a more environmentally conscious vision. The amphitheatre is not only an outdoor classroom for creative learning but an active green space where students congregate at lunch and after school. It’s a space where they can come together enjoying each other’s company and the friendships they made at Stephen Lewis. ARGO is proud to have been a partner in this very special project helping to enrich the space at Stephen Lewis.


Meaghan Zaremba, Caledon’s Unsung Hero Shares the Magic of Music

After being involved in a serious car accident at the age of 5, Meaghan found strength in music and it was a vital part of a long healing process. Her desire and determination to help others with disabilities lead to the birth of The Meaghan Zaremba Music Room.

The Meaghan Zaremba Music Room is a resource for those with physical and mental challenges. It’s a fun and safe place where individuals can freely express themselves through music and experience its therapeutic benefits.

The Meaghan Zaremba Music Room currently supports over 55 special needs individuals across three community groups.

Meaghan has had a positive effect on the community of Caledon and was recognized as an Unsung Hero, carrying the torch for the Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games.

Just this year, CityTV’s Breakfast Television stopped by The Meaghan Zaremba Music Room to bring awareness to their mission and encourage fundraising for this worthy community program.

The Good Ol’ Hockey Game

Nothing brings Canadians closer together like hockey.

We love the passionate fans, the energy of the players, and the excitement of the game. It’s exhilarating to be sitting in the stands of a good ol’ hockey game; a youthful memory that many cherish.

ARGO has helped young hockey fans in Mississauga make some memories of their own by providing them an opportunity to see their hometown hockey heroes: The Mississauga Steelheads. With a generous donation of 500 tickets to the Steelheads’ final game of the 2014 regular season at the Hersey Centre, the community got to share in the experience. ARGO’s contribution made it possible for Peel Halton Dufferin Acquired Brain Injury Services to provide their clients with the wonderful experience of enjoying a hockey game with their peers and the community in general. Since its inception in 1992, Peel Halton Dufferin Acquired Brain Injury Services, a charitable and not for profit organization has been providing community based rehabilitation and life-long support for adults who live with the effects of acquired brain injury. As well, the Halton Canadian Cancer Society Office used the tickets to support their Relay For Life Campaign.

Even though the Kingston Frontenacs left the game victorious, the spirit of Steelheads fans remained high. The Hershey Centre recorded this game as the fifth highest in attendance of the season.


Double the Park, Double the Fun at McCracken

Parks are a focal point of our community and a place for us to enjoy our family, friends, and nature. Working alongside the City of Mississauga in our Churchill Woods project, we helped double the park space at McCracken Park in Mississauga. With an additional 1.3 acres, the new space offers more features and area for everyone to enjoy.

The new features include:

  • A multi-use pad and half basketball court
  • Hop-scotch line painting and drop shot basketball
  • Two cool misters
  • An informal free play area
  • Additional benches
  • A new walkway to connect the existing play area to Stoney Crescent and Ozzie Drive

Local Mississauga Ward 10 Councillor Sue McFadden hosted a celebration with her constituents to officially open the newly-expanded McCracken Park with a community barbecue.

“We were a strong supporter in expanding the park and opening it on time so that the community had a space to come together and celebrate their neighbourhood,” said Gord Buck, Principal, ARGO.

ARGO has a strong focus on opening park space at the beginning of their developments opposed to near its completion. It’s a testament to our commitment of building liveable communities and neighbourhoods.
