The Skyline Group of Companies is one of Canada's fastest-growing and most unique investment management organizations: grounded in real estate, powered by people, and growing for the future.

Our success is built upon humble beginnings, entrepreneurial spirit, and a drive to do things the right way, instead of the easy way. We exist to provide meaningful value to each part of the Skyline network: our residents and commercial tenants, our investors, our staff, and our business and charitable partners alike. That’s why we manage every aspect of our business with the utmost care—from consulting with investors, to fostering a sense of community at each of our properties.

As a full-service real estate investment management organization, we acquire properties across Canada, and fully manage the properties ourselves, ensuring our residential and commercial tenants are proud to live and work in our buildings. Each of these properties is part of a private real estate investment trust (REIT) portfolio, which we offer to our investors as unique alternative investment products. We currently offer three private REIT products: Skyline Apartment REIT, Skyline Commercial REIT, and Skyline Retail REIT.
