Life at Telfer

I know, I know... we have really been obsessing about the green roofs this spring.... last picture, I swear.
This is a series of photos of the green roof on FSS in August, July, June, and May. Do you see the difference a couple of months make?

Someone asked us how much green roof is there on campus? Well in total we have over 3,800 square metres of green roof space on campus. That’s enough to cover 29.5 tennis courts.
Saviez-vous que nous avons assez de verdure sur les toits de nos édifices pour couvrir 29.5 courts de tennis?

Our Expertise



The global climate challenge is real. Business needs to lead the way to a more sustainable future for everyone. To build a solid foundation for our future, we need to completely rethink and reorient the way our economy does business. Learn More



We need to rethink our approach to healthcare from a system perspective, so that we have a better guarantee that the resources Canada puts into healthcare are doing as much as they can do for as many people as possible. Learn More



Happy people are more productive, have better health outcomes, and are more likely to contribute to their communities. We need our workplaces and economy to enhance happiness, not impede it. Learn More



We need money to get activated. We need it to work harder and generate more businesses, more leaders, and more innovations. We need it to work for Canada. Learn More
