Telework is Changing the Real Estate Industry in Alberta: We wanted to know how

In 2022, the Southern Alberta Institute of Technologies’ (SAIT) Green Building Technology Tech-Access Centre (GBTAC) and RFS Energy Consulting began investigating these impacts on Alberta’s real estate sector and its professionals. The team explored the effects of COVID-driven work-from-home patterns through conversations with real estate professionals, property managers & owners, and community representatives.

This research aims to assist real estate professionals in navigating the changing landscape brought about by telework by providing valuable insights into the preferences and needs of buyers and renters in Alberta. The project resulted in the development of a living resource in the form of a Resource Library:, tailored for Alberta’s real estate professionals. Visitors are invited to review the project’s results, key take-aways and recommendations for future research through this website.

This project was funded in 2021 through the Foundation’s one-time 30th Anniversary Legacy Grant Program.
