1. General Information

Background

Canada Lands Company CLC Limited ("CLC") is the core real estate subsidiary of Canada Lands Company Limited. CLC has the same principal goal in its policy mandate as its parent company, to ensure the commercially oriented, orderly disposition of selected surplus federal real properties with optimal value to the Canadian taxpayer and the holding and managing of certain properties. This was laid out by the government in 1995 and then reconfirmed in 2001. The realization of optimal value recognizes financial value, economic stimulation and the strengthening of the quality of life in communities where the company operates.

Responsibilities

CLC's role is further elaborated on in Treasury Board's Policy on the Management of Real Property and Directive on the Sale or Transfer of Surplus Real Property. The surplus properties disposed of by CLC are identified as strategic. Strategic real properties are properties or portfolios of properties with potential for significantly enhanced value, those that are highly sensitive, or a combination of these factors. Because of the complexity associated with these properties, they may require innovative efforts and a comprehensive management approach to move them into the market.
