TORONTO, Ontario – In support of wounded warriors from around the world, Carillion is pleased to be a Games Supporter of the Invictus Games Toronto 2017 presented by Jaguar Land Rover. Working with the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation, the Invictus Games host First Nation, Carillion will manage the movement of vehicles and people at the Fort York Historical Site Archery event. This location is of particular significance for the Mississaugas due to its cultural and traditional history.
“We are honoured to show our appreciation for the men and women who selflessly serve their nation,” said Jim Ferron, Carillion’s vice president Capability Development and retired Major-General of the Canadian Armed Forces.
Carillion Civil Infrastructure Maintenance employees, who work primarily in our highway solutions business, have traffic control plans well under way for the archery event. Along with our volunteers from the Mississaugas, Carillion volunteers will ensure that spectators have easy and safe access to and from the event.
The Invictus Games Toronto 2017 take place Sept. 23-30 at various locations throughout the Greater Toronto Area.
