About Us

Quality purpose-built rental accommodations across Canada.

Hollyburn Properties Limited is a Canadian property management, real estate investment and purpose-built rental development company. Founded in 1972 in West Vancouver, Hollyburn is a family-run business at the forefront of the industry, dedicated to providing residential rental apartment homes in three provinces across Canada. Hollyburn currently manages and operates 85 rental apartment communities nationwide, with over 5,400 suites in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Ottawa. Through environmental stewardship, employee training and support and community partnerships, it is Hollyburn’s mission to raise the standard of our property management practices to the benefit of our residents, our employees and the property management industry in Canada.

Our business is firmly anchored on 4 core principles that guide every member of the Hollyburn Team – Professionalism, Service, Quality and Commitment.

Professionalism – Hollyburn’s longstanding A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, membership in a variety of professional organizations, and participation in voluntary quality-assurance programs such as the Certified Rental Building Program in BC and Ontario, demonstrates our commitment to industry leadership and accountability.

Service – On-site resident managers and in-house maintenance and landscaping teams allow us to provide responsive and top quality service. Our staff accomplish extensive training and professional development to best support our residents and contribute to safe and vibrant communities. From Customer Service and Accessibility to First Aid, WHIMIS, and Emergency Preparedness training, access to ongoing education positions Hollyburn as a leader in service-oriented property management.

Quality – We’re committed to investing extensively in our rental properties. Energy efficient upgrades, modern suite renovations and the restoration or replacement of key building infrastructure contribute to revitalizing the rental housing stock in Canada. We’re now applying over 40 years of experience with building systems, building maintenance and property management into the design of new construction purpose-built rental homes.

Commitment – We take a grassroots approach to community activism, and are committed to contributing to every neighbourhood we are privileged to be a part of. By partnering with local community organizations, we strive to actively pursue business practices that help revitalize neighbourhoods, create opportunities and strengthen and support community economic and social development.
