I have! There are a few options for starting a REIT or a fund in Canada. Some companies specialize in creating and managing REITs, and there are also a few firms that offer fund management services. It's important to do your research to find the right provider for your needs, and to make sure that you're aware of all the associated costs.

Yes, there are a few REITs and funds available in Canada. For example, the Claymore S&P/TSX Capped REIT Index ETF (CLY) is an exchange-traded fund that invests in Canadian real estate investment trusts (REITs), while the iShares S&P/TSX Capped REIT Index ETF (XRE) is another option that invests in a diversified mix of Canadian REITs.

As far as I know, there has not been a REIT or fund established in Canada specifically for real estate investment. This is likely due to the lack of legislation and framework that would support such an investment vehicle.

The Canadian market is relatively small compared to other countries, so a REIT or fund may not be able to achieve the economies of scale necessary to be profitable. You could always look to Google for more information, but in my years of experience, this is what I know!

Hello Everyone,

I'm currently a civil design engineer, and trying to switch to real estate as a Program Manager. I have an interview in a week where they tell me I will have to work on ( for about 3-4 hours ) on an operational case study.

The job is located in Paris and the job is in French .

Does anyone here have any case studies in Real estate that they can share ? and if they're from France, that would be even better.

Thank you in advance !
