The Grande Prairie Area Office (Alberta) relocated to new accommodation on August 30, 2002. A five-year lease was signed for the new premises.

We have been seriously reviewing options for adding space at the National Office, and have decided to undertake a feasibility study. We are weighing the costs of moving the Ottawa Area Office to a new location and moving National Office staff into the area office. An alternative we are considering is adding between 10,000 and 13,000 square feet of floor area to the top of our existing properties. That would ensure that National Office staff would continue to be in the same building. Of course, we will be considering the cost of every option. We believe we can make improvements without spending a significant amount of money.
