The Doors Open for Algonquin Businesses in Rockcliffe

Canada Lands Company CLC Limited (CLC) is now commencing its planning and consultation process to redevelop the former Canadian Forces Base Rockcliffe in Ottawa in anticipation that development and construction will begin in two to three years. Prior to acquiring the Rockcliffe site, CLC and the Algonquins of Ontario (AOO) entered into an innovative Participation Agreement which establishes a direct financial interest for the AOO and sets out opportunities for Algonquin business development ventures.

Specifically, CLC and the AOO are committed to maintaining a list of qualified Algonquin companies with the capacity, experience and financial strength to provide consulting services or to undertake various elements of servicing to support the redevelopment of the site. The AOO is interested in learning whether there are any qualified Algonquin companies, contractors or suppliers who are available in the spring of 2013 to implement an ongoing program of landscape maintenance to manage the growth of vegetation on the site.
