Explore Working With Canada ICI

We’ve grown, learned, and evolved

Canada ICI came to be in 1995, and over the years, we’ve intentionally set our vision and aligned the firm with goals that nurtured both personal and professional life. It wasn’t about growth for the sake of growth. It became about creating a purposeful culture.

Entrepreneurial with a youthful, fresh outlook on business, we chose to work with freedom, to work with friends, and to develop our expertise by learning from each other. We would do it our way, and we would eventually succeed.

Want meaningful work?

Look no further.

This isn’t your typical career application. This is a two-way-street. Your interview of us is just as important as our interview of you. We aren’t looking for job applicants, we are looking for careers to invest in.

Let’s get to know each other.

"The world is evolving, we think the industry should too."

We're different. Let us show you how.

High-performing teams want to work in a collaborative environment that values connection and support. “The Great Resignation” has been about solid talent saying “enough is enough!” to outdated policies and practices that don’t work for them and, instead, choosing something better—choosing a company like Canada ICI. We see the current environment as an opportunity to showcase how and why we do things differently. How and why we do things better.

Why Canada ICI

WHY CANADA ICI

A place to grow, to contribute to a team, and be supported.

A place to develop into a leader and help mentor our leaders of tomorrow. You will help shape the Canadian commercial real estate landscape.

You might not know it yet, but we do.

The Platform

Want to learn all you can about our industry? Leverage our experience and earn your PhD in real estate with us. (The PhD is metaphorical; the experience is golden.) Canada ICI provides the foundation for you to start and grow a successful career. We’re a group of highly-collaborative leaders-building-leaders who maximize the outcomes of everyone on the team, including yours.

The Journey

We’ll support you in setting a course and trekking toward your destination. One of the things that we are really good at is developing future leaders in the commercial real estate industry. Want to experience different markets? Check. Want to manage assets for big portfolio clients? You bet. What about originating or underwriting loans? Yep. Build a network of world-class developers? Heck yes.

Life at Canada ICI

LIFE AT CANADA ICI

Some basic ingredients are all you need. A desire to work with others and help others succeed. A fervour to learn and develop. A passion for real estate and for propelling the industry forward. It’s actually pretty simple.
LIFE AT CANADA ICI

The Culture

You’re not limited here and you won’t be stuck working on one type of asset class (e.g. office, residential). At Canada ICI, you’ll gain constant exposure to a high-volume of deals. As you work on them within the context of a team, you’ll be learning quickly, getting tons of experience working on different deal types across various markets. That’s how you become an (almost instant) expert. In traditional firms, one person writes the fourth office lease deal after doing three. Sure, that person is a master at one thing. Because they keep doing it again and again, they could do it in their sleep. Which is not good because that’s how they end up: working asleep. At CICI, you’ll be wide awake and kept on your toes by the opportunity to work on a wide spectrum of deals. Never a dull moment around here.

“You can’t fly professionally unless you’re soaring personally.”

Our Leadership

At Canada ICI, we work to develop leaders. And we’re great at it. Maybe because our managing partners still produce and manage their own portfolios. Our leaders are here to mentor you, and model creative and collaborative thinking. That’s how leaders make leaders. By walking the walk.

Market Makers

Here’s what it takes to be a “market maker.”

  • Be living proof. Each of us has built a successful career in an environment where we help one another achieve personal and professional goals.
  • Succeed (and fail) together. We work together as a team, celebrating each other’s wins, whether as individuals or contributors, and learning together from our failures.
  • Reject bureaucracy. Our corporate structure is flat, not top-down. It’s based on mentorship, support, and giving back to the culture more than you take
  • Do more, learn more. Because we do more deals than any other firm in the country, we learn faster here than anywhere else.

Piqued your interest? Let’s chart your course together in the direction of personal, financial, and professional fulfillment. Build your community, reputation, and leadership skills with us. It’s your move.
