WHY WE ARE DIFFERENT
For over forty years, DG Group has been a leader in planning and developing properties in a sustainable manner. In recognizing the link between creating progressive communities and nurturing a healthy environment, we have helped develop vibrant living places across Southern Ontario for future generations. Through continual innovation and constant collaboration, we remain committed to our original philosophical goal in bringing life to land.
IMPROVING THE COMMUNITY
We believe that, sometimes, the best thing a community builder can do is to build hardly anything at all. That’s why our communities include spacious parks and natural greenspace, beautiful trails and other nature-inspired amenities that bring people outside to connect with the community as a whole, and with each other. We also take great care in leaving natural valleys, wetlands and other ecological marvels just as they are, the way nature intended.
Responsible planning and the management of resources are imperative to the overall success of any DG Group development. At our Springdale development, one of our largest masterplanned communities to date, we donated almost 200 acres of valley lands and open spaces to the municipality. Most of which has been improved for trail uses and leisure activities.
Within our Richmond Hill development, we donated over 82 acres of land representing significant portions of the Rouge River to the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority to be protected in perpetuity. These lands have been designated as Oak Ridges Moraine Core Areas under the Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Plan.
And in Vaughan, we’ve worked with the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority to develop a plan that would create an overall Environmental Net Gain within Rainbow Creek.
