Young, Educated, Diverse and Growing: Understanding Why the Edmonton Region Offers Significant Real Estate Value

Home to more than 1.4 million people and generating $105 billion in GDP, the Metropolitan Edmonton Region is Canada’s fifth largest economy as well as being the country’s youngest and fastest growing gateway city.

A globally-connected and energy-rich region, Edmonton is also the center of petrochemical development in Western Canada. Fueled by world-class health research, the city also has: a major tech hub which includes one of the top five AI institutions in the world; a wide range of government services as the provincial capital; global leading educational institutions; agriculture, food and manufacturing industries, and a skilled workforce. Metropolitan Edmonton Region is continuously diversifying which strongly contributes to its ongoing stability as the centre of the Alberta Industrial Heartland.

From oil pipelines to snowboard pipelines, research parks to city parks, life sciences innovation to free universal healthcare, this is where the quality of life and economic opportunities converge. The population is diverse, welcoming and well educated. Striving for excellence and innovation, the region is always growing, always improving, and focused on the future.

Join us on May 26 & 27 for the 22nd annual Edmonton Real Estate Forum, held virtually to eliminate any health risks associated with physically attending an in-person event. The Forum has evolved since its inception in 1999 to become the largest annual conference on investment, development, leasing and financing in Edmonton.

How will Edmonton perform over the next twelve months? What are the challenges and what are the opportunities in this market during the pandemic and potentially in the future? 

This will be an information-packed Forum of value to asset managers, brokers, developers, investors, and other professionals active in the ownership, management, leasing and financing of commercial, industrial, retail and residential real estate in Edmonton. The program will provide you with practical insights into this market and what strategies to follow for the remainder of 2021 and beyond.

We hope you will take advantage of this once a year event and look forward to welcoming you over the two days.
