Our commitment to community goes beyond what we build.

We consider each of our building projects to be a positive contribution to their community. However, our commitment to enriching Atlantic Canada doesn’t stop there. Lindsay Construction is proud to support many events and organizations that enrich lives throughout the region. We also encourage our staff to lend their own energy and support to an array of community initiatives. Below are a few of the ways that Lindsay has become involved in the communities we are a part of.


Habitat For Humanity – Halifax

Habitat for Humanity provides affordable home ownership to low income working Nova Scotian families.

On Thursday, May 28th, 2015 Habitat for Humanity was pleased to dedicate two new homes on Drysdale Road in Spryfield to two well-deserving families: The Johnson Family of 4 and The Malay Family of 6.

This initiative was made possible by the Title Home Sponsor Lindsay Construction whose employees, suppliers, subcontractors, partners, and business affiliates all contributed to the success of this project.

“This was a project that our entire organization, as well as valued suppliers, were eager to get behind,” says Cory Bell, President of Lindsay Construction. “I can’t thank our employees and business partners enough for the time and expertise they gave so willingly to this project. It was a great pleasure to work on and we were thrilled to hand over the keys to the two families.”

United Way

Lindsay has participated in payroll deductions in support of The United Way for the past several years. By supporting United Way’s program we help people living in our own communities.  

I believe in my community.
I believe that its success depends on the people who live in it.
That everyone has something to contribute. That everyone deserves respect.
That everyone’s potential can be realized.   That diversity is vital.
That every person has value.   That everyone needs help and everyone can offer help.
That a safe, supportive community is everyone’s responsibility.
I believe in possibility.
