Our Canadian Company
In 1983, CBRE began operations in Canada, under the name Coldwell Banker Canada Inc. The first office was established in downtown Toronto, followed shortly by the launch of offices in North Toronto and Vancouver. By 1994, the company had become a national corporation with offices in major cities across the country.
Since then, the company has opened additional offices and expanded the scope of its operations to include Asset Services, Brokerage Services, Corporate Services, Valuation & Appraisal, Mortgage & Financial Services, Research and Consulting Services.
In 2001, the company turned its attention to facilities management and corporate real estate opportunities in Canada, by forming a joint venture with O & Y Enterprises. In 2004, a 100% interest was acquired and CB Richard Ellis Management Services was established with the mandate to provide comprehensive real estate services for some of Canada’s best known corporations and most prestigious addresses.
In 2005, CBRE was identified as one of the top corporate cultures in Canada by corporate recruiting firm Waterstone Human Capital and continues to hire the best young talent.
By 2006, CBRE acquired The Trammell Crow Company. The acquisition expanded CBRE's leadership and strengthens its ability to provide integrated account management and comprehensive real estate services for corporate, institutional, health care and government clients.
In 2007, CBRE became the first real estate services firm to announce plans to be carbon-neutral by 2010, including CBRE's major initiative to assist clients with energy efficiency programs at the 1.7 billion square feet of building space that the company manages around the world. 2007 also saw CBRE named one of the 50 "best in class" companies and among the top 40 "most generous" companies by BusinessWeek, as well as ranked 33rd in Fortune's List of 100 Fastest Growing Companies
Today, CBRE Limited employs over 2,200 people in 22 offices from coast to coast.
