Canada Lands Company operates in two related business sectors in order to produce the optimal return on its work, to the benefit of all Canadians.
Real estate & development is an important facet of the work Canada Lands Company undertakes to improve the value of a given asset. Following the purchase of a development property at fair market value from the Government of Canada, Canada Lands applies its expertise and may elect to develop, hold or sell a property. At the outset of the development process, Canada Lands fully engages the community and civic officials to collaborate in preparing a consensus-based plan for the property, with connection to the surrounding area. Canada Lands then makes applications for planning approvals from the municipality.
As one of the country’s largest attractions operators, the Company has an established track record of consistent financial success managing and operating some of Canada’s most iconic and historically significant landmarks: Canada’s National Tower (CN Tower) in Toronto, the Montréal Science Centre, the Old Port of Montréal, and Downsview Park, also in Toronto. The Company has particularly excelled in developing innovative marketing programs and new initiatives, incorporating sustainability and accessibility enhancements, to attract millions of visitors and guests to its attractions from all over the world.
