Tartan Homes Corporation
The Tartan team are proud residents of the Ottawa community. We have a long history of supporting a wide variety of worthy causes both at home and abroad.
Tartan’s founder, the late Wes Nicol, served as Board Chair of his Alma Mater, Carleton University, and his family continues to be a generous donor to that institution as he had for many years. Up until 2015, his annual National Entrepreneurial Awards were a highlight here in Ottawa, and together with his wife Mary he has made innumerable financial contributions to a variety of local organization and causes spanning the arts, health care, and social causes.
Wes’s sons Ian and Bruce both managed Tartan Homes. Bruce is now Chairman of the company, and he and Andrew Levitan, President of Operations (and likewise an Ottawa native) are committed to maintaining the Nicol family tradition of giving back to our community. Contributions are currently directed to the Ottawa Hospital Foundation, the NAC, the Shepherds of Good Hope, The Great Canadian Theatre Company, Algonquin College’s Construction School of Excellence and numerous soccer and hockey teams.
