The CN Tower’s ongoing lighting program recognizes citywide events, charitable events and causes, seasons and special holidays and, on the evening of March 21, will salute the efforts of World Water Day to raise awareness of the international need for access to safe water.

“As a leading real estate developer, CLC has long recognized the central importance of freshwater management to its sustainable development commitment”, said Mark Laroche, CLC’s President and CEO. “This is apparent in everything we do, from targeting reduced water consumption in our owned and operated buildings, to implementing stormwater management best practices in our new real estate developments.”
