ABOUT QUALICO

Since 1951, Qualico has grown from a small residential developer to one of the largest privately held development companies in western Canada.

As part of Qualico, a fully-integrated real estate company with nearly seven decades of experience, we work alongside experts in community building, home and multifamily builders, and manufacturers of building materials. Together, we’re able to integrate our properties into the communities we build and collaborate to increase the density around our sites.

Through it all, we prioritize the people who use our spaces, whether they’re customers, or people collaborating in an office setting.

We consider their aspirations and strive to improve their overall experiences. Through the lenses of development (what we build), leasing (who we invite into our sites), and property management (how we support our tenants) we work alongside the rest of Qualico to build a better city: one that facilitates connections and brings people together. Find out how we're working towards building a better city.

IN THE COMMUNITY

The founders of Qualico came from humble beginnings and community enrichment has long been a mandate of our organization. We recognize the significance of enriching the community, by supporting social causes including education, arts and culture and medical research as well as the use of sustainable and environmentally friendly practices. We endeavor to surpass standards of compliance, ensuring that Qualico Commercial protects, sustains and enhances the environment.

HISTORY

The Qualico tradition started over 70 years ago, with the founding of a home building company in Winnipeg by Mrs. Katherine Friesen (a teacher) and her husband, Dr. David Friesen (a lawyer). The first year they built seven houses, and the following year they built thirteen more.

Thousands of Canadian families choose Quality to build their homes every year, many of which are created in Qualico's master planned communities. The company's activities span the entire real estate spectrum and include residential land acquisition and development, single and multi-family home divisions, commercial and industrial development, property management, concrete ready mix, building supply and manufacturing divisions. Qualico has always been a champion of community enrichment with a strong history of corporate giving. In our effort to create vibrant communities,
