We're a not-for-profit real estate developer

We unlock the value in real estate to create better communities

Catalyst is a BC-based not-for-profit real estate developer. We build vibrant, affordable, and inspiring rental homes and places for people to live and work in. Catalyst does this by working with non-profits to unlock the value of their real estate assets, and reinvest that value back into BC communities.

Our projects

Catalyst brings together decades of real estate development experience with non-profit values. Our goal is to help our non-profit partners achieve long-term financial sustainability, while also creating opportunities for Catalyst to create more affordable housing in BC. We’re working on projects in communities throughout BC.

Catalyst is aptly named. Their work with our organization has been instrumental in helping us to unlock latent potential, address chronic gaps in service and look toward a future with greater opportunity for the people we serve.
