GWL Realty Advisors, incorporated in 1993, is a real estate company focused on growth, committed to sustainability, and dedicated to delivering strong, long-term returns for our clients. To do this, we look for opportunities, at home and abroad, to expand our portfolio, initiate rewarding partnerships and establish new investment platforms. We act as trusted stewards of our clients’ assets and the places where our tenants work and our residents live.
The properties we manage and develop and the services we provide have a direct and beneficial impact on many people’s lives. More than 3 million Canadians and 170 pension plans, endowment and labour unions rely upon the steady returns we generate to help fund their pension payments and retirement dreams. Over 23,000 people call our residential properties home, and that number will grow. By living our purpose, we help make life better for millions of Canadians.
Most of the assets we manage are in Canada, but we are also committed to providing opportunities for our clients to invest in the U.S. real estate market through our long-term strategic partnership with Sagard Holdings (Sagard).
We are backed by The Canada Life Assurance Company, a leading Canadian international financial services company; we act with integrity in every transaction, every agreement and every relationship, which makes us a welcome partner. We value our staff and draw upon their creativity and determination, so we can move boldly to achieve our goals – and to develop and manage spaces that engage, excite and inspire.
