Putting people first is at the heart of the Concert Properties (Concert) story. In 1989, Concert was founded with a mandate to create assured rental housing. We’ve since grown and diversified – and the Company became a real estate corporation wholly-owned by union and management pension plans representing over 200,000 Canadians.
Today, we develop and manage rental apartments and seniors’ active aging communities; develop condominium homes; develop, acquire and manage commercial properties; and invest in, develop and manage public infrastructure projects across Canada. We also have 10 mixed-use master-planned communities built or under development across Canada. We are deeply invested in improving the lives of the people who live and work in our communities, acknowledging that communities are more than just buildings.
We take pride in ensuring these communities are environmentally and socially sustainable to address climate change and reduce waste while fostering human connection. And our relentless passion for quality means we critically think about every decision, no matter how small. We hold ourselves to firm quality standards that guarantee an unparalleled execution.
We are a proud Canadian company, providing quality employment across the country, and working together with the people we serve to realize our vision—building resilient, inclusive, sustainable communities.
To deliver on this promise, Concert developed a comprehensive Sustainability Framework in 2019 that outlines principles, strategies and concrete actions we will take in order to reach specific and measurable goals.
