Opening doors for diverse students to realise a career in property

The real estate industry offers an abundance of entry-level job opportunities but still struggles to recruit and retain diverse candidates. 

In 2022, we donated CAD$250,000 via the Westminster Foundation to two of Pension Real Estate Association Foundation’s programmes designed to advance industry-wide diversity and inclusion.

The funding will be distributed over five years to two groups. The first is the Real Estate Exchange High School Career Exploration Program, established to address the shortage of African Americans and Latinos working in the industry. 

The programme helps introduce high school students of colour to careers with high earning potential in commercial real estate. 

The second is the Urban Alliance Property Management High School Internship Program, created to expose high school seniors to property management career pathways and support their transition to the workforce.
