Employee development programs

We care about our people, from the most recent hire to how we inspire and grow our dedicated team and our senior leaders. In fact, we make a point of developing our employees to create the leaders of tomorrow. And for employees, our leadership development programs create exciting opportunities for professional development and career advancement.

Building Leaders

We took care to develop exciting programs specifically designed to provide our team members unique opportunities. We want them to learn in a comfortable, engaging and professionally facilitated environment. Each of our four different Building Leaders programs, is tailored to a different group of employees.

Areas of focus

  1. Crisis management
  2. Leadership development
  3. Brand management
  4. Driving performance

LEAD Mentoring program

We developed the LEAD Mentoring program specifically to help our employees grow as leaders. They learn to live and breathe the seven competencies that represent our organization, that we want in every level of leadership.

The program is broken down as follows:

  • A one-year internal Mentor/Mentee program
  • One-on-one mentor meetings
  • Presentation skills training
  • A major assignment involving group work to develop and present a business proposal

LEAD Rotational Management Training program

We created this program as a two-year operations-focused course. It’s specially designed to rotate participants through every aspect of the business. Candidates spend the first year working in many of our corporate departments – including IT, People and Culture, Procurement, Accounting and Finance, Acquisitions, and Marketing.

Our seven leadership competencies

Adopted in our everyday behaviours and decision-making, CAPREIT has seven leadership competencies that form the bedrock of our culture and values.

"Working at CAPREIT has offered me countless opportunities for personal and professional growth and I can truly say that working for this company has helped shape me into the person I am today. I have built genuine relationships here that extend well beyond office hours and I feel fortunate to work with and for such thoughtful leaders."
