Procurement Manager @ Ferguslea Properties

Position: Procurement Manager

Location: Ottawa, ON

Independently owned and managed, Ferguslea Properties Limited evolved from one of Canada’s most prominent real estate development and property management companies. Throughout the 2010s, Ferguslea Properties established itself as an individual entity with a mandate to revitalize its properties, improve the overall infrastructure, uphold the safest experience for tenants and undertake several ‘green’ initiatives. In 2011 the company rebranded its largest community to create Accora Village, a 100- acre site nestled in the heart of Ottawa’s west end. The community sits between the Ottawa River and the newly refurbished Bayshore Shopping Centre, providing access to trails, bike paths and the amenities associated with a world-class mall. With the highway on Accora Village’s doorstep and the LRT extension planned, the community is ideally positioned to access all areas of the National Capital Region. Accora Village offers a mixture of newly refurbished and upgraded apartments, townhomes and garden homes, a fully equipped recreation centre and pool with educational and fitness programs for the whole family. Ferguslea Properties is at the beginning of a journey to revitalize the entire Accora Village community. Ferguslea’s ownership and management are fully invested in the commitment to their goal of becoming the number one rental community in North America.
