CEO's Message from Benjamin L. Shinewald

It’s An Exciting Time For BOMA Canada

We are thrilled about the evolution of our flagship programs: a significantly upgraded BOMA BEST® 3.0, a reimagined BOMEX® and a constantly improving National TOBY® Awards all speak to the vibrancy of our organization.

As we grow bigger and stronger, we reach deeper and wider into the Canadian commercial real estate industry. With a record level of c-suite leaders engaging in our programs, a Building Operator Certification Program in the works, and new and exciting partnerships with our supplier members, we continue to offer greater and greater value to our industry.

In fact, we are so bullish about our new program that we are expanding it outside of Canada.

Benjamin L. Shinewald - President & CEO, BOMA Canada

The introduction of BOMA BEST® 3.0 at BOMEX 2016 in Regina is without a doubt the biggest accomplishment in our organization’s history.  Years in the making and with the support of hundreds of volunteers, BOMA BEST® 3.0 takes our flagship sustainability program to new heights, with completely overhauled and reimagined content on an exceptionally powerful and innovative IT backbone.  In fact, we are so bullish about our new program that we are expanding it outside of Canada.  Watch this space for details.

Our network of eleven vibrant Local Associations, stretching from Newfoundland and Labrador to British Columbia, continue to offer first-rate education, networking, advocacy and more to our thousands of underlying members.  Your Local Association is the hub for all things real estate in your backyard, and BOMA Canada supports our common national needs.  From advancing your career to expanding your business, from celebrating your success to growing your community, BOMA is there for you.
