About Canadian Urban

Dedicated to the pursuit of performance

Profitable investments rarely happen by chance – they require more than a hunch and optimistic guesswork. Long-term performance in real estate investment requires understanding industry trends, a rigorous process for risk mitigation, and a hands-on team devoted to successful outcomes.

At Canadian Urban Limited, whether you are an institutional or private investor, we deliver. Our Open-Ended Pooled Fund (“CU7”) has an exceptional track record and provides a balance of stable income returns and long-term asset appreciation.
