President & Chief Executive Officer
One simple thing inspires us above all others: care. It inspires us to reach higher, provide more and perform better. Whether you’re a resident, one of our employees or an investor, care is our watchword and you can see it in everything we do.
For over 25 years, that sense of care and relentless commitment to quality has guided us in developing friendly, accessible, vibrant neighbourhoods, all across Canada. We’re committed to our dynamic, close-knit communities, made up of multi-unit residences, and we stop at nothing to make certain they enjoy a quality of living second to none. Our attention to every detail ensures that they continue to thrive, welcoming one and all with real warmth. That’s what makes each residence we offer a highly sought after, safe and secure place to call home.
All our properties are serviced by dedicated professionals, teams of caring employees who are concerned deeply about the people they serve. And as one of Canada’s top employers, we offer every one of the people who work with us a diverse range of positions, an inclusive and diverse culture with ample opportunities to grow and develop a career.
Visit any one of our properties and you’ll experience happy residents serviced by caring individuals who believe in their work. At every level, we work hard to make sure our residents enjoy a premier living experience and a world-class quality of life.
Who we are
We’re Canadian Apartment Properties REIT, Canada’s largest publicly-traded provider of quality rental housing. We own, or have interests in, approximately 65,000 well-located, residential apartment suites, townhomes and land lease community sites in Canada and the Netherlands.
What we're focused on
Each one of us feels the call to care deeply, which puts us well on the way to being the best investment in Canada and around the world. And we bring that calling to everything we do every single day: managing our assets and operational processes systematically and investing in developing a healthy, supportive culture. It’s why we’re one of Canada’s best employers and a premier residential real estate landlord.
We work hard to attract great residents by acquiring high-quality rentals in welcoming communities. Our residents are serviced by hard-working employees who are as devoted to delivering an unparalleled level of service as professional as they are themselves. As a result, we generate long-term, sustainable growth opportunities for Unitholders.
Over 25 years of successful growth
Driven by a remarkable history of caring, starting in 1997, we’ve never stopped growing. We have approximately $17B in assets and we’ve become Canada’s largest residential REIT. But we haven’t stopped there. We’ve expanded internationally and we’re now poised to become one of the most respected real estate trusts in the world.
We grow our people as well. Our employees know that we care enough to invest in them, growing their leadership potential and developing their careers within the organization.
Social responsibility is high on our list of concerns. We take our corporate citizenship responsibilities very seriously. At all levels, we make regular corporate donations, commit to annual charitable fundraising goals and stay involved in community partnerships.
