COMMUNITY INVESTMENT GUIDELINES
Trico has been proudly serving communities in Calgary and the surrounding area since 1992. Our team believes communities are the foundation on which great homes are built and we always try to bring our very best to every neighbourhood where we work and live – providing the support, enthusiasm and leadership necessary to help those communities thrive.
Our guiding principle is founded upon Doing Well by Doing Good. Trico does Well when we deliver value to our stakeholders and Trico does Good when we build stronger, healthier, thriving communities. Our entire team is committed to helping make a positive impact in our community and choose partner with those that share our values of Trust, Respect, Integrity, Community and Opportunity.
As a certified B Corp and entrepreneurial-spirited company, Trico is keen to support those dedicated to solving social, cultural or environmental issues that impact our community.
