Candace Kruk and her husband Justin moved into The Orchards in 2013. They welcomed their baby girl Wrenne in January 2021. They absolutely love the community! Candace is serving her fifth term as a Resident Director.

Candace and her husband launched Skinny Tax & Accounting in 2015. Their goal was to treat clients like family and help them to achieve their goals through strategy, investment and implementation.

Candace strives to support and help grow her community by connecting people and supporting other businesses.

On the rare occasion when she does step away from work, she enjoys travelling, camping and gardening. She also has a passion for design, which you’ll clearly see when you visit the SkinnyTax office!
AVTAR MOHAR
AVTAR MOHAR
Human Resources Leader, Resident Director
Avtar and her husband relocated to The Orchards in 2020, and since then, they’ve welcomed two little ones to their family. They’ve savored every moment of the vibrant community life and the array of amenities available at The Orchards. Driven by a desire to contribute further, Avtar eagerly stepped up to join the Board of Directors. With her background in Sociology and expertise in Human Resources, she possesses a deep understanding of the dynamics that foster thriving communities. Her ability to empathize and connect with diverse perspectives ensures that every voice is heard, enriching the community experience for all residents and making a strong positive impact in this growing community. 


 Avtar and her family are all about embracing every season—they’re just as likely to be found gliding on the ice rink in winter as they are to be splashing in the spray park when the weather warms up. They love escaping to the mountains to soak up the crisp mountain air and tranquil atmosphere. Yoga is Avtar’s go-to for relaxation, squeezing in sessions whenever possible to stay centered and fit. While she’s committed to a healthy lifestyle, Avtar is also a self-proclaimed foodie and baking enthusiast. So, don’t be surprised if you catch her whipping up mouthwatering treats whenever the mood strikes!
LINDSEY MACDERMOTT
LINDSEY MACDERMOTT
Resident Director
My name is Lindsey MacDermott and my family and I moved into the Orchards in 2019 form BC. We were drawn to the amenities of the ORA and the community culture.

We enjoy participating in the resident events and you can often find us skating through the winter. I enjoy crafting, a warm coffee, and you might see me running the paths early in the morning.

I love the strong sense of community this neighbourhood has and I hope I can continue to build that spirit during my time on the board.
