Ferguslea Properties is fully committed to providing a superior customer experience, one of the best the industry can offer. The leadership ensures detailed and excellent customer service and resident engagement at all times to create a seamless and enjoyable customer journey.

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.
