Delos Canada Celebrates Their First Anniversary Since Toronto Office was Established in January 2021

Delos Canada was established to accelerate health and well-being in Canada’s indoor environments. For nearly a decade, Delos has been elevating health and well-being as central values in the spaces where we live, work, sleep and play. Recognizing a profound opportunity to integrate health and well-being solutions into our built environments, Delos has fostered research collaborations with leading medical institutions, architects, scientists and wellness thought leaders to introduce standards, programs and solutions into the built environment.

Canadian companies were among some of the earliest adopters of human health and sustainability strategies. With the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic together with a growing focus on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) initiatives, Canadian organizations have accelerated the already growing awareness of how time spent indoors can impact overall health and well-being.

To help Canadian businesses, real estate owners and the public sector, including schools and long-term care facilities, improve the overall health and wellness aspects of their indoor environments, Delos partnered with a group of Canadian business leaders to establish Delos Canada. The group, including Greybrook, has been providing valued leadership support in advancing Delos’ strategy for product and solution enhancement, global expansion and ecosystem development as well as core participation on the Global Advisory Board.

2021 was a busy year for Delos and the International WELL Building Institute.

  • By the close of the year, Delos had delivered over 200,000 air purification units to over 185 schools, representing over 3 million students across North America. IWBI certified over 3 billion square feet of indoor space, and had enrolled 33,000 projects in one or more of the WELL programs in 98 countries – Canada was among the top 10 countries with 29 million square feet of WELL certified space, and 180 million square feet under the WELL Health-Safety rating.
  • In January, IWBI’s Celebrity WELL Health-Safety Rating Campaign launched featuring ambassadors such as Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga, Robert DeNiro, Michael B Jordan and the former S. Surgeon General Dr. Richard Carmona. The commercial was prominently broadcast in the US and Canada throughout the year including during the 2021 Oscars.
  • By the summer, Scotiabank Arena, MLSE Launch Pad, Brookfield Properties achieved the WELL Health-Safety Rating on a portfolio of 114 retail assets and nearly 100 office properties totaling more than 200 million square feet in 10 major markets across the U.S. and Canada making it the largest combined office and retail portfolios to achieve the designation. Followed by Dream Office REIT became the Largest Commercial Portfolio in Canada to Achieve WELL Health-Safety Rating, First Capital, Cadillac Fairview at their Toronto-Dominion (TD) Centre, Oxford, Hines, Ivanhoe Cambridge, Choice Properties, Greybrook and Longo’s.
  • In the Fall, Delos Canada partnered with CHEO & Minto Communities to sponsor the 2021 CHEO Dream of a Lifetime Lottery! The CHEO Dream Home featured Delos’ Wellness Extension, a modular ecosystem of products that includes Delos advanced air purification, water filtration and air quality sensor to help promote spaces that help reduce stress, improve sleep quality, increase performance and enhance overall well-being. In addition, Lakefield College became the first Canadian school to purchase Delos compact air purifiers throughout their school and the Tribute Communities Centre in Oshawa achieved the WELL Health Safety Rating!

The Delos Canada team made great strides in working with various levels of government and leading institutions across various sectors across Canada. They have been able to demonstrate the importance and benefits of advanced air purification and evidenced-based health and wellness protocols on elevating the quality of our indoor environments while promoting the health and safety of everyone indoors. The Delos Canada team continues to be driving force within the global Delos operation and expects to build on the early momentum achieved in 2021.

As the spread of COVID continues, indoor air purification remains top of mind.  To discover how you can purchase your own advanced air purification units through Delos Canada be sure to visit the new online store – shop.deloscanada.ca.
