Who we are

Investing in Alberta

Created in 1991 under the Real Estate Act, the Alberta Real Estate Foundation is a nonprofit grantmaking organization that supports and strengthens Alberta's real estate industry and benefits Albertans. Through strategic investments, we fund projects across a diverse range of initiatives designed to bolster the work of the industry, government, and our land and built environments. Since our inception, we’ve invested over $30 million to 776 initiatives across our province.
