Common Ground Community

Welcome to Common Ground, a program designed by MasterBUILT Hotels to promote socially responsible practices across Canada, with a specific focus on the communities we build in.


 

Since Common Ground’s launch 2 years ago, we have had the opportunity to partner with amazing communities and their organizations. As we move forward, we will continue to promote socially responsible practices across all of our hotels, while giving back to the communities we build in.

All of our MasterBUILT Hotels are proud members of the Common Ground program, and are dedicated to promoting the practices of community involvement, accessibility, and environmental sustainability.

Frequently Answered
Questions

What Is Common Ground?

Common Ground is the first hotel donations program of its kind in Canada, created by MasterBUILT HOTELS to say “thank you” to the communities we build in. Residents in communities with running Common Ground programs can nominate their favorite community organization for a monetary donation as well as increase the value of the donation through an online voting system.

How Can I Take Part?

Every community member is part of the decision and can make a difference by voting to decide which community organization will receive the Common Ground donation. You cast your vote right here on the website! Just scroll up, and click the “vote” button under your organization of choice. After you have voted, tweet or “like” your vote on twitter or Facebook; every time a vote is tweeted or liked, one dollar is added to the total donation.

How Can I Help Even More?

Whether it’s a local hockey team, a community festival, or a local non-profit organization, you have the opportunity to change and help improve lives in your community by voting for an organization in your community to receive a donation. If you want to help even more, make a larger donation through Common Ground, or become a volunteer for the program, please contact MasterBUILT Hotels directly at
