Summer Students

One of the best ways of entering the real estate industry is by gaining valuable experience while you’re still a student. Our summer student program is designed to give college and university students an opportunity to learn some of the fundamentals while exposing them to the wide variety of career options available at GWLRA.


How it works

Once students arrive in early May, they’re invited to an orientation session with several members of our executive team welcoming them and offering them career advice. They’re also invited and encouraged to take part in our staff socials to network and learn about their roles.

Over the course of the summer, students will get an opportunity to tour several of our buildings, providing them a first-hand view of what goes into managing our properties.

Next, we split our students into groups and provide them with a departmental project that utilizes several different skillsets. For example, this may include providing recommendations for amenities and in-suite features for new multi-residential projects.

Finally, in early August, the students present their findings to our Executive Committee.

Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

At GWLRA, we strive to provide an inclusive, equitable and diverse environment where staff feel involved and supported in all areas of the workplace.


It’s a place where we:

Not only celebrate diverse ideas but seek them out.

Collect diversity and inclusion data to help set goals for improvement.

Implement programs and policies that align with governance, talent acquisition, employee engagement, and data transparency.

While we recognize that this is an ongoing journey, we’re encouraged by our progress, having recently earned a Diversio Level 1 certification.
