About Us

Incorporated in 1993, GWL Realty Advisors is a real estate company focused on growth, committed to sustainability, and dedicated to delivering strong, long-term returns for its clients. To do this, we look for opportunities, at home and abroad, to expand our portfolio, initiate rewarding partnerships and establish new investment platforms for our clients. We act as trusted stewards of our clients’ assets and the places where our tenants work and our residents live.

Backed by The Canada Life Assurance Company, a leading Canadian international financial services company, we act with integrity in every transaction, every agreement and every relationship, which makes us a welcome partner. We value our staff and draw upon their creativity and determination, so we can move boldly to achieve our goals – and to develop and manage spaces that engage, excite and inspire.
