Canadian Urban Limited   


Canadian Urban Limited: the boutique investment company with a big heart.

Canadian Urban is a real estate investment company that invests in real estate on behalf of clients. Clients include major Canadian pension funds, crown corporations, union funds, foreign institutional investors, provincial funds, endowments, Fortune 500 companies, and high-net-worth individuals. Many pension funds or endowments designate a specific allocation to real estate.  As the asset manager, Canadian Urban finds specific properties for clients to invest in, so as to meet their investment goals.

As a smaller sized firm, they are able to create specialized funds for clients.  Canadian Urban’s 45 year track record and industry relationships are used to achieve the vision and goals for the clients served. 

Typically, the size of each fund ranges from one million to one hundred million, depending on the client. The goals of clients regulate how much is invested and the type of investments made.


When formulating the fund mandate, clients choose from property sectors including industrial, office, multi-family residential and retail. Then clients are guided to invest in one of four fund types: segregated funds, closed-end discretionary real estate investment pools, syndications and direct placements.


Clients may choose low-risk or high-risk investments for a faster return. The fund mandate is designed for them to meet their short and long-term investment goals.


 Canadian Urban also has a property management division. This branch oversees the maintenance and tenancy for a number of properties in its' portfolio.  These include a number of industrial, retail and office buildings in Edmonton, Calgary and Toronto.  

There are also 6 residential properties that are managed in Edmonton and Calgary.

The Edmonton location is the head office, located at 10572 - 105 Street.  There is also a secondary office location in Toronto, with staff that oversee the eastern Canadian business and investments. In total 48 properties are currently asset managed across Canada.  The goal of Canadian Urban is to continue to grow the business and continue providing the personalized services to the clients.

Canadian Urban shows a caring commitment to the community by sponsoring events like a Charity Golf Tournament for the Edmonton Community Foundation and donating turkeys for the Christmas Bureau.
