This Forum will continue the tradition of providing valuable insights on the market trends, issues, strategies, and opportunities in Canada’s National Capital Region. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic across the real estate property classes and the market overall will be integrated within the Forum.

Discussion will focus on what is facilitating growth in Canada’s sixth largest real estate market and how it is continuing to perform from a leasing, investment and development perspective through a turbulent eighteen months.

The program will focus on both Ottawa and Gatineau, offering a range of panel discussions and sessions on the transformational office market; the federal government’s real estate strategies; key municipal planning policies; the continuation of development activity; and the significant challenges facing retail; and how the industrial, apartment and condominium markets are performing.

Prospective post-pandemic trends will be examined beginning with the future of work environments. Will they be remote, hybrid or back to the office fulltime?

Discussion will also focus on what engines of the local economy are creating job growth and real estate demand in both the Ottawa and Gatineau markets.

The Forum will be targeted to meet the needs of real estate executives, brokers, developers, investors, asset managers, and other professionals active in the acquisition, leasing, financing, management, and marketing of office, industrial, retail, and multi-unit residential real estate.
