To complement our work as a grantmaker, the Real Estate Foundation leads and joins special initiatives - including research, collaborative working groups, and signature events. These initiatives advance our interests in sustainable land use and real estate practices, and help to inform our grants and theories of change.
From time to time, the Foundation undertakes its own projects, either in partnership with other organizations or independently, to achieve outcomes that further our legislated purpose and mission.
We believe that collaboration, especially between non-traditional partners, can spark fresh ideas and bolster a project, initiative or movement’s chance of success.
REFBC’s Land Awards celebrate initiatives that demonstrate leadership, innovation and collaboration in sustainable land use in British Columbia.
