As a hospitality company rooted in Canada’s most stunning landscapes, we're deeply committed to sustainability and we understand the importance of preserving our environment. That's why we've implemented several green initiatives in our daily business practices.

Our Green Initiatives

To name a few things, we're actively reducing food waste through composting and eliminating single-use plastics by providing filtered water stations and refillable soap dispensers with locally sourced products. Additionally, we promote environmentally friendly housekeeping practices by cleaning rooms after check-out or as needed, rather than daily.

These measures, along with our participation in BUILT GREEN®, reflect our dedication to creating a more sustainable future for our guests and communities.

One Tree Partnership

As part of our green initiatives, in May 2023, we launched a partnership with OneTreePlanted to donate a percentage of each guest's reservation towards reforestation. For every dollar donated, one tree is planted in areas of Western Canada affected by wildfires. Our mission is ambitious: to plant 250,000 trees in Alberta and British Columbia. To date, we've successfully planted over 35,000 trees through various tree-planting programs in both provinces.

Check our current Reforestation Projects here.

We're proud to partner with OneTreePlanted, a non-profit organization dedicated to global reforestation.. Together, we're making a meaningful impact on the environments that we know and love, one tree at a time.
