Start Date

Pledge Type
Active Investor: Oxford will invest in at least one early-stage company delivering novel real estate solutions and innovation skills and capabilities.
Areas of Focus

Affordability and Supply: Meeting Canada’s housing supply challenge and addressing high costs and low productivity leading to a lack of affordability, recognizing that homes will only get built if the project economics works.

Climate Resiliency and Low Carbon: Ensuring Canadian real estate can withstand extreme weather events and reducing the carbon footprint of Canadian real estate to meet Canada’s 2030 climate goals.

Optimization: Canada’s existing building stock is not used optimally due to factors such as a lack of transition options and a lack of flexibility to convert one form of building use to another.
