Communities are more
than Bricks & Mortar

Beyond building homes and contributing parks, recreation facilities, amenities, school sites, seawall walkways and daycares, Concord infuses over $2 million dollars annually into the communities they develop in through family oriented events and charities.

Kindness Pays Forward

Community builder Concord Pacific along with Global BC community reporter Michael Newman set out to find kind people in the Concord Pacific Place community to reward their act of kindness with a $1000 donation to their charity.

One of these charities will now benefit from an extra $30,000 donation. The story/video with the most "votes" will receive an additional $30,000 from Concord Pacific!

But it doesn't end there... Concord also wanted to make sure that not only the most popular story but the best story will receive an award for their charity so Concord and Global BC assembled a jury panel of community peers, media and medical professionals to select the best story and give away an additional $30,000!

Voting has concluded.

Congratulations exceptional citizens Judy Robertson for Sole Foods and April Skold for BCITS! Your kind acts netted your charities over $30,000 each! Watch the Global TV announcements made on January 7th:

KIND CITIZEN,

Community Events

Cultural events, sports and the arts are essential ingredients to well-rounded communities. Concord sponsors and hosts a number of large scale events year round including: Run for the Cure, Canada Day at Concord CityPlace, the Vancouver Jazz Festival, Diner En Blanc, Cityfest, Surrey Fusion Festival, Party for the Planet, Vancouver Sun Run, Vancouver Electric Vehicle Association, Surrey Tree Lighting Festival and the Indian Summer Festival.

During the summer season, the Concord Pacific Dragon Boat Festival is a staple around False Creek while Concord is renowned as the longest running sponsor of the Celebration of Light.

Concord’s New Year’s Eve Vancouver, Heritage Christmas at the Burnaby Village Museum presented by Concord Pacific and Concord Christmas Weekend at the Roundhouse anchors the family friendly events during the winter months. In addition, Concord CityPlace also supports a public skating rink at Canoe Landing Park during the season.

Concord is also a major supporter of the Vancouver Art Gallery, Arts Umbrella, Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra.

Concord Supports its Communities through Charitable Programs

The children in Concord communities benefit through the infrastructure and after school program funding from Concord’s partnerships with the Vancouver Society of Children’s Centres to the local community centres and schools, and healthcare funding through BC Children’s Hospital.

Concord continually supports senior assisted living programs through the S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation initiatives such as the annual Walk with the Dragon and the Bridge to S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Gala.

In addition, Concord partners and supports the Greater Vancouver Food Bank, Canadian Cancer Society, Coast Mental Health Foundation, Rotary Clubs, Vancouver Chinatown Foundation, Diamond Rally Charity Challenge, United Way of Lower Mainland, and Vancouver Eastside programs and housing initiatives.

Concord’s Public Art Canada’s Largest Public Art Program

Concord’s public art program creates a sense of place in its parks, public landscapes and on the towers they build. Concord’s future art commissions will include a collection of Canadian themed installations at Concord Canada House in Toronto, Woodsy Park in North York, and Canada’s largest suspended art piece spanning over 90 feet over the public space at the new Arc building in Vancouver.
