News Release

Halifax, NS – Shannex, the first seniors’ living organization in Canada to be certified for ISO 50001, is advancing its work to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by expanding the use of Ecopilot® technology into more of its communities.

In 2020, Shannex installed Ecopilot®’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) for HVAC software in seven communities across Nova Scotia and saw impressive results in the reduction of total building energy consumption. Based on this success, the organization is taking the next step to implement Ecopilot® in 24 more communities across New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Ontario.

“Shannex is on a journey to transform the way sustainability is prioritized within our organization, and we’ve set ambitious goals to help us deliver on this commitment,” said Kim MacDonald, Vice President, Property and Support Services. “We know we can’t do it alone, so working with strong partners like Ecopilot Canada is making a big difference.”

The expansion project is slated for completion early this year and is projected to result in energy savings of 3,830,000 kilowatt-hours (KWh), equivalent to powering nearly 350 homes for an entire year.

“We are thrilled to support Shannex in achieving their green goals,” said Jennie King, General Manager at EcoPilot Canada | USA. “Our extensive growth across Canada and the US, indicates a rising demand for innovative, cost-effective solutions. Ecopilot® is market-proven, easy to install, and significantly reduces energy consumption.”

As a pioneer in seniors’ accommodation and care, Shannex is dedicated to leading the way to better living, which includes an innovative approach to services. In recognition of their exemplary leadership in environmental stewardship, EcoPilot Canada | USA recently recognized the organization with the 2023 Carbon Hero Award. This honour acknowledges a company’s contribution to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and inspire others to become climate change warriors.
