Skyline named as a Gold Standard Winner in 2018 Canada’s Best Managed Companies award

Posted On March 8, 2018

GUELPH, ON, March 8, 2018 – Skyline Group of Companies is proud to be a Gold Standard winner in 2018, and has been a Canada’s Best Managed Companies winner since 2014.


Now in its 25th year, Canada’s Best Managed Companies recognizes excellence in Canadian owned and managed companies with revenues over $15 million. Each year, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies compete to win this highly sought-after designation.


Sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC, Canadian Business, Smith School of Business, TMX, and MacKay CEO Forums, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program measures more than financial performance. Applicants are assessed by a panel of judges made up of the program sponsors. Emphasis is placed on people, culture, overall business performance, innovation, and sustained growth.


“This is our fourth consecutive year being recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies, and our first time earning the Gold Standard designation,” stated Jason Castellan, Skyline’s CEO, and one of its three founders. “Recognition such as this further validates the steps we have taken to grow a company that is built upon humble beginnings, entrepreneurial spirit, and a drive to do things the right way instead of the easy way.”


As a company, Skyline exists to provide meaningful value to each part of their network: their residents, commercial tenants, investors, staff, business partners, and the charitable organizations they support. Originally founded in student rental housing while attending University, Skyline has grown to become a full-service real estate investment management organization that’s portfolio includes over $3 billion in multi-residential, commercial and retail properties. Each of the properties is part of their private real estate investment trust (REIT) portfolio, which offers investors a unique alternative investment product. Among other subsidiaries, they also operate Skyline Wealth, a wealth management firm, and have formed a partnership with Anvil Crawler, a sustainable energy developer that provide simple, yet powerful options for residential and commercial energy production and storage.


“Our business is constantly evolving, as we work to bring more value to our network,” commented Castellan. “We accomplished a lot in 2017 and have even bigger goals for 2018. It is always nice to be recognized for our efforts, and to share awards such as this with our staff that makes all of our achievements possible.”
