Expands Moncton location, moves into renovated historic Halifax building, launches "Leading Thinkers" series
HALIFAX and MONCTON, NB, Nov. 26 /CNW/ - T4G Limited, a leading national provider of project-based technology services, today further renewed its commitment to Atlantic Canada.
"We have a 'near shore' not 'off shore' strategy when it comes to creating high-value knowledge jobs to best serve our clients," says T4G President Geoff Flood. "And one way to achieve this is by strengthening operations in places where smart people want to live and work. Today's announcements are both a testament to the talent available in Atlantic Canada and to the region itself as a great place to live and raise a family."
Today's events include:
- T4G moving into a new Halifax location at 2882 Gottingen St., in the
city's rejuvenated north end. T4G renovated this classic building -
one of the few in this neighbourhood to withstand the Halifax
Explosion in 1917 because it was built with internal steel support -
as further indication of the booming tech sector in the region. T4G's
renovations create enough space to double the number of Halifax
employees from the current number of 33.
- Renovating and expanding T4G's second New Brunswick operation in
Moncton at 1222 Main St. This building features an open design
standard that has proved productive and "employee friendly" in other
T4G locations in Saint John, Halifax, Toronto and Vancouver.
- The launch of the T4G Leading Thinkers series which will attract
smart minds to speak in communities where smart people want to live
about various issues all centred on how to make the world a better
In Halifax, the first Leading Thinkers speaker is author Paul Born, founder of Tamarack, a dynamic organization that develops and supports collaborative strategies that engage citizens and institutions to solve major community challenges. In relation to Halifax's north end where T4G is now located, Paul will talk about creating and sustaining vibrant communities.
"There is so much more to T4G than simply a bottom line," says Mr. Flood. "The Leading Thinkers series is another example of this. Our employees are engaged and passionate about their work and their communities. And Leading Thinkers furthers this dialogue in communities where we live.
"Another example of employees' passion is the T4G Future Focus Foundation, a registered charity created by T4G employees that raises money for organizations that help children succeed," he adds.
Today in Halifax, the foundation releases results of a feasibility study on building a training centre in Halifax for at-risk and disadvantaged youth to further their education.
Such a centre would be based on social architect and visionary Bill Strickland's model in Pittsburgh. Strickland's Bidwell Training Center has been so successful it has been replicated in many U.S. cities. Halifax would be the first like it in Canada.
"Yes, T4G is a corporation that must make money to grow and prosper," says Mark Fraser, T4G's Chief Operating Officer, who is based in Halifax. "But it is also a corporation with a social conscience. And this is part of our culture, part of our DNA. We're proud of that and proud to be growing and prospering in Atlantic Canada, as well as elsewhere in the country."

We believe in building high-performing teams and breaking conventional wisdom. We believe in our people and true participation in each and every project we undertake.
