Thank you, Ms. Ambler.
As you know, Imax is a corporate leader in innovation. In fact, our greening corporate grounds program was actually launched at Imax. They've been a partner with us from the very beginning. Our staff was working with them, and they came to realize that they were planning for major renovations of their parking lot facility. As you know, the impervious surfaces that parking lots represent are a major source of pollution—and of flooding, for that matter.
We sat down with them. Our engineers met with their technical staff. We talked about some innovative solutions that could be integrated into a retrofit of their parking lot. A variety of LID, or low-impact development, technologies have been integrated into the design. They're also supporting us in the monitoring of those facilities so that we can learn from that experience. As you can appreciate, they're very much in support of scientific research. They've become a very valuable and important demonstration site. They are leading the charge and showing other corporations and other potential partners the opportunities that some new technologies can represent to reduce impacts on water quality and peak flows flooding downstream.
Teck was a very earlier partner in the same general neighbourhood, the Sheridan research park in southern Mississauga just north of the QEW. They investigated the opportunity to really put in place environmentally sustainable landscaping, reducing chemical inputs into their landscaping operation by creating viable natural habitats. They were one of the early adopters and were willing to use their site as a demonstration site so that we could show others that these ideas can really work.
RBC has one of their major corporate headquarters at the intersection of Mississauga Road and the 401. I'm sure many of you are familiar with the large towers there. They have a variety of issues they're trying to deal with. Flooding is one of them. It's become a hazard for them. They have partnered with us, through Partners in Project Green, actually, to put in place another demonstration site. They will be retrofitting a portion of their parking lot. They will be converting it to permeable pavement so that we get infiltration rather than ponding, rather than flooding, recharging the groundwater system, and addressing a hazard that's there right on site. They'll also be participating in a habitat naturalization project along the edge of the property fronting on the 401.
So a variety of different initiatives are benefiting the local environment.
