First Capital – Why Work With Us?


Our company is a community.

As one of Canada’s largest owners, developers and operators of mixed-use real estate, we’re at the heart of where people work, live and shop — every day.

We create thriving super-urban neighbourhoods where neighbours run into each other; where businesses succeed; where spaces become vibrant places. We generate long-term value and sustainable growth for both our real estate portfolio and our future as community builders.

Sustainability

For the past decade, we’ve taken a leadership position in ensuring sustainable practices for new developments and existing properties.

As our strategy continues to evolve—environmental, social and governance principles become even more critical to our business and culture.

Our holistic approach to sustainability is beyond our commitment to LEED certification. Sustainability is at the core of every aspect of the real estate life cycle, from acquisitions and developments through to operations.

The result is pedestrian-friendly, high-density communities with positive social, economic and environmental impacts. Our residents are more engaged and connected given over 90% of our properties are within a 5-minute walk to transit.

 

We Invest in People

We offer a dynamic and rewarding workplace with an opportunity to grow and succeed every day. We look for the right people to place in the right positions to efficiently manage our properties, grow our people and drive financial performance.

Growth

To build a strong team, we invest in our people and provide them with the right tools to succeed. From there, we collaborate and strive toward a common goal. At every opportunity, we complement each other’s thinking and push to make ideas stronger.

Culture & Diversity

Our people are what makes us different. That’s why we work collectively to build a company culture similar to how we build communities. We are recognized for our gender diversity and believe that different perspectives and backgrounds fuel the diverse and inclusive approach to everything we do.

    Very fast-paced can be difficult to maintain in the long-term.

    Advice to Management

    Offer mobility and flexibility to staff to organize work in ways that make sense for the type of work that they do.

    Interview
