People, places and DG Group



In today’s rapidly growing and evolving world, land development plays a crucial role in shaping the way we live as Canadians. For the past 40 years, DG Group, a Canadian vertically integrated development firm, has been dedicated to the creation of vibrant and sustainable communities. With a unique approach and a strong emphasis on Bringing Life to Land, DG Group has become a vanguard in the industry.

DG Group sets itself apart by employing an innovative approach to land development. While other firms focus solely on design and construction, DG Group takes a more holistic approach to community design, which prioritizes the people and the places they create, allowing for stronger community engagement and long-term sustainability. By working to understand the needs and desires of the people who will live, work and play in their new communities, DG Group creates a harmonious blend, blurring the lines between people and place.

At DG, the central theme is Bringing Life to Land.  This means going beyond the traditional concept of developing new housing. Their developments aim to create Livable Communities that offer more than just a place to live, but a place to thrive. By integrating essential lifestyle amenities such as parks, trails, schools and community centres, they promote a sense of belonging and connection among the residents who will call it home.

DG Group believes that exceptional planning can elevate the living experience for residents. They translate their philosophy through collaboration with renowned community designers, to create iconic developments that have a lasting impact on the urban landscape. Each project is carefully crafted to reflect the unique qualities and aspirations of the local community, while also incorporating the latest trends in sustainable design.

Our people strive to have a positive impact in each community we create.

DG Group recognizes the importance of engaging with local stakeholders throughout the development process. They actively seek input from community members and local leaders, to ensure that their developments meet the unique needs of the area. This collaborative approach fosters a sense of ownership among residents and results in the creation of enduring, thriving communities.

Encouraging the principles of environmental stewardship, DG Group works to integrate sustainability into each new community. Utilizing innovative building strategies and incorporating open greenspaces in their developments benefits the environment and also enhances the quality of life for all residents.

The team at dg Group works to build better communities through dedication and consideration. We continue to strive for excellence within our master-planned communities.

In addition to their focus on community development, DG Group is committed to giving back. They actively support local organizations and initiatives that contribute to the social well-being of the communities where they operate. By championing corporate social responsibility, they serve as an exemplary model for other firms in the industry to follow. A few examples of the organizations they have partnered with are William Osler Health System, United Way, Southlake Regional Health Centre, Lake Simcoe Conservation Foundation, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority, Holiday Helpers, and Second Harvest Food Rescue.

DG Group’s pursuit of Bringing Life to Land in the Greater Toronto Area has earned the company a reputation for excellence and innovation. By adopting an integrated and community-centric approach to land development, the firm creates sustainable communities that enhance the lives of residents while respecting the environment. With a commitment to community design excellence, stakeholder involvement, and corporate social responsibility, DG Group continues to shape the urban landscape in the GTA, for the betterment of all.
