About this event

Alberta is calling Canadians home and attainable housing is central to that pitch. How can our industry pivot and continue to welcome even more people to the Edmonton Metro Region within a changing landscape of policies, processes, supply chain pressures, commodity prices, lending rates, inflation issues, and more? Join us for a special presentation and fireside chat with the author of UDI’s Market Watch, Richard Goatcher, and CBRE’s Executive Vice President Dave Young. Moderated by Brookfield’s Mike Kohl, the panel will discuss where we have been, where we are now, and where we are going next.

  • Where: Derrick Golf and Winter Club
  • When: October 20 from 12 - 1:30 p.m.
  • Doors open 11:30 a.m.
