SalDan Developments Ltd. is an active member of our community supporting many local groups and associations.
Sam’s involvement with volunteer work gave him the opportunity to serve in the capacity of President on many associations, and bus driver on others. SalDan supports and sponsors youth and adult oriented sports ranging from amateur to competitive, as well as actively taking part in endless fund raising activities.
Shea MacGillivray, previous ADSB student who completed the House Building Program sponsored by SalDan. Received a bursary for her accomplishments to go towards her post secondary education at Sault College! Shea is now a Site Supervisor at SalDan Construction Group.
SalDan has been a sponsor of Algoma District School Board’s House Building Program for 10+ years, giving student’s the opportunity to gain hands on experience in the trades. We are proud to say we have employed many students over the years with a few now working their way into supervisor positions. It is a great priority to continue in encouraging student’s to consider the trades as a career path, as they are the future generation!

Being an active sponsor of Habitat for Humanity for the past few years has been one of the most rewarding experiences. In 2020, we built a 3 bedroom, 1,290 sq. ft. custom bungalow that is the first fully accessible habitat home, featuring barrier-free entrances, wider doorways and a stand-up shower. Helping people achieve home ownership and independence is a very worthy undertaking and especially in this case as this home is made specifically to fit the needs of a very deserving mother, daughter, and grandmother!
Our involvement with the Holmes’ group is something we are very proud of, it compliments our 40 years of building quality, adding an additional layer of accountability to our product, and giving the clients another reason to choose a SalDan home. The Holmes Approved Program essentially provides the client with peace of mind by performing multiple third party inspections done on every project – with this partnership the clients can be even more confident that they are receiving a home that’s done above today’s standards, and it’s made right!
The latest involvement in youth sports culminated with the return of Junior “A” hockey to Sault Ste. Marie. The Soo Thunderbirds Junior “A” hockey club flies high again after more than 25 years of absence. This club provides local athletes with the opportunity to combine education with hockey at a higher level while being able to live at home. As president of this club, Sam was able to bring together a large number of Sault area sponsors as well as convince many talented volunteers to give their time for the betterment of local youth.
SalDan takes care of the Precious Blood Cathedral to keep the integrity of the building in tact. See here us replacing the cross at the very top on the church’s tower.
