FCT Invests in OneClose Inc., Driving Value, Efficiency and Innovation across New Build Condominium Transactions

OAKVILLE, ON, January 6, 2021 – FCT, the leading national service provider in real estate technology and title insurance, today announced it has invested in OneClose Inc., a technology company that provides a breakthrough financial conveyancing solution, solving the problem of interim occupancy interest for new build condominiums. This investment aligns with FCT’s mission to drive innovation across the real estate transaction.

OneClose’s interim occupancy payment solution removes the need to pay interest on the unpaid balance of the purchase price by allowing new build condominium buyers to obtain mortgage financing between the occupancy date provided by the builder and the date the condominium registers. The solution saves consumers time and money, while providing them with peace of mind, which is especially important in today’s uncertain climate.

“At FCT, we’re invested in driving innovation for all stakeholders involved in real estate transactions,” said Michael LeBlanc, CEO, FCT. “We are proud to invest in OneClose and the solution they have built, as we share a commitment to streamlining the transaction closing process for all real estate professionals. We look forward to providing lawyers and their clients with the protection they need from the moment of ownership.”

This partnership furthers FCT’s longstanding reputation for industry leadership, which is rooted in pioneering title insurance in Canada in 1991. As the exclusive title insurance provider for this Ontario-based solution, FCT provides new build condominium buyers with a much-needed safety net of title insurance through their lawyer at the time of mortgage financing. At the same time, FCT’s title insurance policies reduce risk for OneClose’s network of trusted lenders at the time of purchase.

“Since the beginning, we have remained committed to driving value for our customers by working with the most trusted innovators in the real estate industry. FCT is the perfect addition to our team of experts,” said Kevin Murphy, CEO, OneClose Inc. “Through innovative thinking and leading-edge technology, we’ve established a solution that removes the historic pain points of interim occupancy when purchasing a new build condominium. We are proud to be supported by FCT and its longstanding reputation as an industry-leading provider of innovative real estate solutions.”

FCT announces multi-city effort to support homeless and at-risk youth

FCT has donated more than $30,000 to support this important cause through partnerships with nine community organizations

OAKVILLE, September 10, 2020 – FCT, the national leader in title insurance and real estate technology, today announced a multi-city effort to support Canadians impacted by youth homelessness. Through partnerships with nine community organizations across the country, FCT has donated $30,000 to support meal programming for homeless and at-risk youth.

FCT’s donations will help to raise awareness and provide support for youth impacted by COVID-19 in the communities in which FCT operates, including 360kids (the GTA), Covenant House (Vancouver), Good Shepherd Centres (Hamilton), Laing House (Dartmouth), Le Bon Dieu dans la rue (Montreal), West End 24 Hour Safe Space (Winnipeg), Wood’s Homes (Calgary), Youth Impact Jeunesse Inc. (Moncton) and Youth Opportunities Unlimited (London).

“At FCT, we’re invested in our communities and are committed to driving positive change any way we can,” said Michael LeBlanc, CEO, FCT. “We recognize that every bit counts and in light of COVID-19, we’re focusing on a cause that is important to our company and our employees across the country. We wanted to support the great work our community partners are doing to provide critical resources for homeless and at-risk youth during these unsettling times.”

Testimonials from FCT’s community partners:

360kids

“We believe that every young person deserves a safe place to call home. While we have certainly seen challenges in the past, few in our 30 years have come close to COVID-19,” said Daniel Zaroski, senior development associate, corporate and foundations. “Each day, we have anywhere from 30 to 50 youth attend our Richmond Hill home base to access our meal programs, and our biggest need during the pandemic has been stocking our food bank. FCT’s support during this time has been critical to helping youth in the GTA overcome this crisis and transition to a state of safety and stability.”

Covenant House Vancouver

“We exist to provide love, hope and opportunity to youth in Vancouver experiencing homelessness and housing instability. Partnerships with organizations like FCT are key to helping us provide access to adequate food and proper nutrition to the young people we work with,” said Alison Brodie, development officer, corporate and foundation giving. “This partnership will help form the building blocks for youth to live healthy, fulfilling and productive lives, often for the very first time.”

Good Shepherd Centres

“FCT’s dedication to creating opportunities for positive change aligns with our core mission and values,” said Norma Joaquim, director, youth services. “Our main goal is to restore hope with support that will help young parents break the cycle of poverty for multiple generations. We are excited to have FCT alongside us, working together to build healthy and resilient communities for young moms and their children in Hamilton.

Laing House

“At Laing House, we offer innovative youth engagement and peer support programs to empower youth living with mental illness,” said Kyle Kelly, program team manager. “As we navigate challenges brought on by the pandemic, we are working to address food insecurity by encouraging youth to access our online community of healthy living programs. FCT’s support is integral to expand this offering and help fill a gap for many young people in Nova Scotia.”

Dans la rue

“Because of support from partners like FCT, we are able to provide homeless youth in Montreal with the skills and resources needed to lead more autonomous lives,” said Cécile Arbaud, executive director. “This includes emergency accommodation, family services, education and meals – none of which would be possible without their support.”

West End 24 Hour Safe Space (WE24)

“As an organization providing at least two meals a day to homeless youth in Winnipeg, FCT’s meal programming support has been instrumental,” said David F. Cole, director of operations. “This partnership has supported us in providing crucial resources to those who need it most and helped our communities get through one of the toughest times we’ve ever seen.”

Wood’s Homes

“We strive to provide services that promote and restore the well-being of children and families, and an important piece to that puzzle is meal programming,” said Ave Maria Beltran, community engagement coordinator. “Investing in both the mental and physical health of Calgarians in need wouldn’t be possible without partners like FCT, with their funding helping to expand our food security support and improve our programming by providing individuals with more independence in meal planning. We are truly grateful for their support.”

Youth Impact Jeunesse Inc.

“There are hundreds of at-risk and homeless youth across New Brunswick, who have fallen through the cracks of society and are deprived of the services available to them to become healthy and successful adults. This generous gift from FCT helps bridge the gaps in young peoples lives by meeting basic needs and opening doorways to education, employment and healthy futures,” said Mel Kennah, executive director.

“We are grateful to our community partners like FCT, who help us make a positive difference in the lives of at-risk youth here in Moncton through Youth QUEST Central,” said Tracy Cormier, associate director.

Youth Opportunities Unlimited (YOU)

“For nearly 40 years, YOU has helped homeless and at-risk youth in London build the skills, confidence and independence required to reach their full potential and lead positive lives,” said Jamie Lee Arseneau, community engagement coordinator. “Thanks to community partners like FCT, we are able to kick-off brand new initiatives, such as serving meals to youth accessing emergency shelter services in our community. We’re excited to receive this support and to get one step closer to achieving our mission of helping lead youth toward success.”

OAKVILLE, April 17, 2020 – FCT, the national leading technology and service provider in real estate, today announced it is one of the Best Workplaces™ in Canada for the sixth consecutive year, according to the Great Place to Work® Institute. Last month, the company was also recognized by the Great Place to Work Institute as one of the nation’s Best Workplaces™ for Women.

Organizations listed on the Best Workplaces™ in Canada list are chosen based on feedback provided by their employees in a survey and Great Place to Work Institute’s in-depth review of company practices and programs.

“In the current environment, earning the recognition from the Great Place to Work® Institute as one of Canada’s Best Workplaces takes on added significance,” said Michael LeBlanc, CEO, FCT. “While these results reflect our great work prior to the pandemic, we remain committed to providing our employees with a supportive and engaging work environment.”

To qualify for the list of Best Workplaces™ for Women, organizations must have been Great Place to Work Certified™ in the past year, as well as provide programs and practices that promote the fair treatment and advancement of women.

“We pride ourselves on fostering a work culture where every employee is empowered to be their best selves and feel comfortable in the workplace, regardless of gender,” said Leblanc. “This recognition validates our commitment to promoting inclusion and providing our staff with the tools they need to be successful. We look forward to continuing to create a culture that embraces belonging and supports innovation among all employees.”

Earlier this year, FCT was also recognized as one of the Great Place to Work® Institute’s Best Workplaces™ for Inclusion. Looking forward, FCT is committed to supporting the health and safety of our employees, customers and the communities in which we operate, while providing the most consistent level of service possible amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Company recognized for inclusive culture

OAKVILLE, February 6, 2020 – FCT, the national leader in real estate technology, today announced the company earned a spot on the 2020 list of Best Workplaces™ for Inclusion, after an analysis conducted by Great Place to Work®.

“At FCT, our employees are our lifeline. Our business is driven by an incredible group of employees who have a strong commitment to trust, respect and support for others,” said Michael LeBlanc, CEO of FCT. “We understand that creating an inclusive culture is important to the success of our organization, and making sure our employees feel encouraged and valued is a top priority. That’s why we’re so proud to see the culture that we’ve built and fostered together be recognized with this great honour and to show our employees that their efforts are making a difference.”

The list of Best Workplaces for Inclusion™ is based on direct feedback from employees of the hundreds of organizations that were surveyed by Great Place to Work®. To be eligible for this list, organizations must be Great Place to Work Certified™ in the past year and at least 90 percent of employees must agree they are treated fairly, regardless of personal characteristics (such as gender, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation).

FCT awards the Honourable William G. Davis Scholarship to disadvantaged student challenged by homelessness

OAKVILLE, ONTARIO, October 10, 2019 – FCT, the national leader in title insurance and real estate technology, announced the company awarded $5,000 through the Honourable William G. Davis Scholarship to Geoffrey Fornoles, a disadvantaged secondary school student who was confronted with the challenges of homelessness in the past year. The scholarship will help fund his post-secondary education as he enrolls in a Computer Science program.

Fornoles was selected through a partnership with Home Suite Hope, a charitable organization that fills a gap in the shelter system by providing transitional housing to the growing homeless population in the Halton Region. Opening up about the struggles he faced last year, Fornoles had the following to say about the Honourable William G. Davis Scholarship: “The previous year was challenging for my mom and I as we were at risk of being homeless for months, continuously struggling to make ends meet. I am not able to save much money for my post-secondary education, so being awarded this scholarship is a huge help.”

“As an organization, we are committed to combating youth homelessness in Canada and our scholarship is one of the ways we do so,” said Michael LeBlanc, CEO of FCT. “We recognize that attending post-secondary education is challenging for youth who face the risk of homelessness, so we’re making an impact by helping alleviate some of the costs of attending college or university for disadvantaged youth.”

Since launching the scholarship program in 2015, FCT has helped 16 deserving students offset some of the financial challenges of a post-secondary education. The scholarship program was named after The Honourable William G. Davis, the 18th Premier of Ontario, whose passion for education contributed to his work in building Ontario’s community college system.
