Khalil Parker

Operations Manager

Khalil Parker is an Operations Manager for our Nova Scotia properties and is based out of our Halifax office. Khalil’s impressive combination of talent and motivation, coupled with his easy-going personality and people skills have helped him to rapidly progress here at CAPREIT.


Starting as a Leasing Specialist with us in 2017, his potential was first recognized in 2018 when he was promoted to a more challenging Site Manager role. Khalil’s career development was supported though his participation in CAPREIT’s LEAD Mentee/Mentor program in 2019. The following year Khalil was selected to participate in CAPREIT’s Rotational Training Program. Speaking about the Rotational Training Program – he states: “It was truly a beneficial experience providing valuable insights into all the departments at CAPREIT – and provided me the tools I needed for my current role.”


Khalil was promoted to his current role as an Operations Manager in 2021. With over 1,300 units at 6 different locations currently in his portfolio, Khalil keeps busy – managing operations teams during the day, while balancing efficiencies and ensuring great customer satisfaction.


in 2020, Khalil was recognized by his industry peers by being awarded the CFAA’s prestigious On-Site Employee of the Year Award. (No small feat in the tumultuous first year of the pandemic and lock-downs)

Asked about why CAPREIT is the best Place to Work, Khalil says: “No day is the same and its fun being able to be my authentic self while problem solving with such a positive and driven team.”

“– Change is the only constant in life.” – Heraclitus, Greek Philosopher.

Different mentors throughout my life. Mentors, family and friends. My dad told me at a young age that whatever I do to make sure I do my best at it.

Be authentic in everything you do and let your intentions be known.

The constant support and opportunities that have been presented that allow me to share those moments with my team.

Favourite book would be the James Patterson – Alex Cross series. Favourite movie: Kingsman – The Secret Service

Seafood Pasta with Alfredo Sauce.
Anything that keeps me active, tennis, soccer and I recently picked up golf.
*Do you put hot sauce on (almost) everything? **No hot sauce for me, thank you!
