* One-year variance comparing 2016/2017 and 2017/2018
** Benchmark set by Natural Resources Canada
*** Normalized value for a BOMA BESt certified building according to 2012 water benchmarking pilot report by Real Pac. Value normalized against occupant density, occupied hours, landscape irrigation, atypical water-consumption functions and location/climate.
**** Value normalized against total number of permanent, temporary, short-term and contract employees as of March 31, 2016 (7,214); representing air and rail travel.
***** Value normalized against total number of permanent, temporary, short-term and contract employees as of March 31, 2017 (7,615); representing air and rail travel.
****** Value normalized against total number of permanent, temporary, short-term and contract employees as of March 31, 2018 (7,444); representing air and rail travel.
