Who the Canadian REIT Handbook will help

REALPAC’s Canadian REIT Handbook is intended for a variety of readers, including real estate owners, managers and operators, potential and seasoned investors, legal, accounting and financial advisors, investment bankers, lenders, and academics. It will be useful as both a quick reference tool and a detailed text, regardless of the reader’s level of familiarity with REITs.

The Handbook covers a broad range of topics, including the evolution and history of the Canadian REIT; the trust concept and how it applies to the Canadian REIT; distribution levels, investment guidelines and operating policies; tax considerations; the process of a REIT’s initial public offering; acquisition and public financing options; trustees’ duties and liabilities and governance standards applicable to REITs; management; ongoing securities law compliance; development arrangements; take-over bids, going-private transactions and related party transactions; and investment considerations.

Why you need this practical guide

Canadian REITs have evolved significantly over the past decade. Many external management arrangements have been internalized and new management arrangements developed. The REIT sector has seen mergers, acquisitions, conversions, development programs, creative financing instruments and cross-border structures.

REITs enable thousands of private investors to invest in real estate assets they would otherwise not have access to, along with a significant number of institutional investors. The introduction and passing of the tax legislation, referred to in the Handbook as the “SIFT rules”, has made the rules governing publicly traded REITs significantly more complex. At the same time, in restricting the access of non-real estate public entities to tax efficient flow-through structures, the legislation has further enhanced the importance of the public REIT sector to the capital markets.

As the REIT sector continues to grow and new issues emerge, the Canadian REIT Handbook will be updated.
