Introducing WPSEVAC, Our New Building Fire and Life Safety App
We are excited to announcethat we have teamed up with WPS Disaster Management Solutions to provide a more effective solution to fire and life safety, and fire code compliance at Commerce Court thanks to our new custom building fire and life safety app, WPSEVAC. This app will empower Floor Wardens and Employees with information, such as emergency procedures,emergency contacts, evacuation reporting, fire evacuation maps and give them the confidence needed to respond to an emergency incident.
The app is fully integrated with our ePlan System ensuring you will always have access to the most current information. In addition, you will have immediate access to the “at a glance dashboard” displaying any potential Floor Wardens that are due for fire safety training and drill requirements as set-outby the fire code.
The WPSEVAC app is available for iPhone and Android users. Please visit https://eplanadvantage.com/free-evac/evac-download-instructions/ to download the app now. WPSEVAC will only be accessible to users who are registered by the building ePlan Advantage software program. For more information about registering for Commerce Court’s ePlan, please contact email@example.com.
Bird Migration Safety
Seasonal bird migrations in Ontario last from March through June, and continue again from the end of August to the beginning of November. It is common for flocks of birds to be attracted to lights from buildings and, sadly, millions of birds are injured or killed due to collisions with buildings (source: flap.org). While we understand that manypeople continue to work from home, please assist us where you can to help make our QuadReal office buildings flight-safe for birds.
The following are some simple and helpful techniques we're doing that you too can do for both your home – especially in high-rise towers - and office settings:
·When working late and, when localized light controls are available, please use task lighting (table or desk lamps) instead of overhead lights
·Close window curtains and blinds at night
·Turnoff non-critical exterior lighting during spring and fall bird migration seasons
·If surrounding greenery is reflected in your windows, consider a bird-deterrent window solution or move greenery away from windows
·Report a fallen bird at your home or workplace by calling Flap Canada at: 416.366.3527 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Myseum of Toronto: Intersections
Myseum Intersections is an annual festival that will take place from April 2021 until June 2021. The festival explores intersectional perspectives of Toronto through collaborative exhibits, events, and experiences. Intersections presents a wide array of programming intended to create dialogue on civic issues and inspire a deeper knowledge and appreciation of our city.
Myseum’s Intersections festival fosters collaboration and partnership, bringing together community, culture, arts and heritage organizations to produce compelling programs and a space for lesser known narratives of under-represented communities.
Project proposals can range from exhibitions to events such as walking tours, workshops, panel discussions, lectures, public programs, exhibition tours, community celebrations, interactive experiences, and performances. We prioritize participatory and co-created projects, and encourage collaborative partnerships between organizations, collectives and individuals.
The first exhibit featured at The Collison Gallery for the Myseum Intersections festival is Women in Hip Hop presented by Ear Appeal.
On Friday night, April 30th at 8pm, the music video for Women in Hip Hop premiered on Myseum's YouTube channel. This video features rap artists Exmiranda, Keysha Freshh and Dijah SB and was shot at the Collision Gallery at Commerce Court.
