FCT Celebrates 10 years of Growth and Contributions in Oakville

OAKVILLE, ONTARIO, December 17, 2012 – FCT (First Canadian Title) celebrated its 10th anniversary in Oakville by reflecting on 10 years of corporate growth and contributions in the Oakville Community. FCT Executive Vice‐President and Chief Operating Officer, Michael LeBlanc was joined by FCT Chief Executive Officer, Tom Grifferty and local Councillors, Dave Gittings and Keith Bird to mark the occasion.

“In 2002 when we moved into our Oakville Home Office, we had just issued our one millionth policy. Ten years later we issued our 10 millionth policy. Oakville has been a very good home to FCT and we have a tradition of giving back to the communities in which we live and work,” said Michael LeBlanc. “FCT and our employees give back by supporting local initiatives, charities and organizations through fundraising and volunteering. I am very proud of our employees and our record of local support and charitable giving in Oakville.”

In the past decade, FCT and its employees in Oakville have raised funds for many charitable causes including Habitat for Humanity, United Way, Halton Women’s Shelter, Community Living Oakville, the Red Cross and local scholarships. In 2012, FCT is supporting Habitat for Humanity, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Halton, Harry Barrett & Sheridan scholarships and Food for Life. FCT is also a Partner for Life with the Red Cross and FCT employees have donated 80 blood units in 2012.

“I am delighted to be here to celebrate ten years of success in Oakville. I want to thank Councillors Gittings and Bird, and all FCT’s Home Office employees for contributing to our success,” said Tom Grifferty, FCT CEO. “FCT continues to be the industry leader in title insurance working from a strong foundation at our Oakville Home Office.”

December 16th marked the 10th anniversary of FCT’s move to Oakville into its office building at 2235 Sheridan Garden Drive. In celebration of this milestone and in keeping with its recent brand refresh, FCT Home Office has undergone a “makeover” to update its interior to reflect the modern, new brand colours (blues and greens), as well as, a change of signage to emphasize the new brand name ‐ FCT.

Quotes from dignitaries;

“I am happy to be here to mark FCT’s 10th Oakville anniversary. I have seen FCT engage in local organizations and support charities like Habitat for Humanity since the moment it arrived in Oakville,” said Regional Councillor Keith Bird. “When companies like FCT take an active role to strengthen and support our local organizations we all benefit.”

“FCT has been actively engaged in local environmental initiatives and was the first corporate member of the Town’s Canopy Club. It also has also planted trees, supported the trail system through Wildflower Woods and engaged in an Annual Clean up on Earth Day,” said Councillor Dave Gittings. “We are fortunate to have a good corporate citizen like FCT in our Ward.”

FCT Celebrates 10 Millionth Policy and Launches FCT.ca

OAKVILLE, ONTARIO, October 18, 2012 – FCT, the market leader in title Insurance and real-estaterelated products, celebrates its 10 millionth policy and ongoing commitment to excellence by launching its newly revamped website.

Visitors can now gain a more comprehensive understanding of FCT and its unique products and services, in a more modern and user-friendly format. The new website will provide an industry-leading resource for information regarding title insurance, mortgage-document processing and default solutions, as well as a convenient online means for ordering policies.

What’s more, in upholding FCT’s mission to make financial transactions simple and secure, the new site will ultimately serve as a basis for gathering input from FCT customers, and eventually expand into a forum for professionals involved in real-estate-related services to share best practices.

Commenting on the new site, Michael LeBlanc, FCT Executive Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer, describes it as “much more than a redesign.” “This web project required a major rethink of how FCT could better support its clients and the industry as a whole.”

FCT called upon Forge Media + Design to undertake the new design. FCT.ca now boasts a contemporary, colourful look and feel and its customer-driven approach provides users with more efficient access to the organization’s resources, which had previously been separated into several different websites. Immediately upon accessing the home page, users will be able to self-identify based on a set of customer profiles and then easily navigate through to the most relevant and timely information. The site also offers several new features such as a newsfeed and social media links.

StüssyTschudin, Principal, Forge Media + Design, identified the biggest challenge faced by the website design team: distilling the wealth of information available from FCT in a manner that would allow FCT’s diverse customer base to quickly identify the best path to the most relevant material. “We immediately recognized the wealth of expertise that FCT has and our challenge was to design a site that could deliver it in a comprehensive, yet streamlined format.”

At the same time as the launch of its new, streamlined website, FCT is celebrating its10 millionth insurance policy in Canada. Michael LeBlanc explains, “The fact that our customers have chosen FCT 10 million times over the past 20 years has highlighted the need for us to continue to be leaders in everything we do. This new website is yet another example of our commitment to excellence and to leadership in this industry.”
