Capital was also an honourable mention as Judges’ Choice. Every year OSSGA challenges the industry to raise the bar by highlighting operations that go above and beyond what is required by legislation.

Capital was awarded the Community Relations Award for the Wellington Pit for the work at Sunrise Therapeutic Riding & Learning Centre. The Wellington Pit is located in Puslinch Township. The Community Relations Award is designed to recognize community relations efforts and is based on being a good neighbour, community involvement, media relations and community education.

Capital Becomes Major Sponsor for Sunrise Therapeutic Riding & Learning Centre in Puslinch, Ontario.
On June 4, 2017, at Sunrise Therapeutic’s (www.sunrise-therapeutic.ca) annual Celebrate Sunrise event, Capital was announced as a major sponsor for the facility. Sunrise’s mission is “to develop the full potential of children and adults with special needs and lead them closer to independence through a therapy, recreation, horse riding, life skills, and farm related activity program”. At the event, Capital employees were able to meet some of the amazing children that attend the program, to better understand how Sunrise is making their lives better. This year, Molly Burke (www.mollyburkeofficial.com) was made an honorary director of the facility. Molly gave an inspirational speech on the challenges she faced growing up with a disability, including bullying, loss of friendships, loss of soccer; on top of the challenges of losing her sight. There was not a dry eye as everyone tried to understand how a child could face challenges with such bravery and what Sunrise meant to her. She is now an adult and accomplishing great things.read more..
