Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging

Our commitment, our culture.

Cresa’s DIB Committee members are committed to change. We acknowledge that our current workforce does not meet our own standards for diversity, nor does it accurately represent the communities in which our offices are located. To change this, we’ve established actionable goals to bring us into a more diverse and inclusive future.

Our formal Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging (DIB) program was launched in 2018 with the creation of our Diversity Council. In June 2020, the 45-member Council was spurred into further action. We split up into 4 committees, each with its own specific focus and target objectives. By making our efforts measurable, “embrace diversity” becomes more than a core value – it’s ingrained in our business model. The creation of these committees was prompted by the Black Lives Matter protests spreading across the U.S. and around the world, illuminating the injustices black people still face each and every day.

Together we strive to encourage, support and celebrate the diverse voices of our employees. The threads of our individual experiences are woven together to create a culture of inclusivity and innovation – one that strengthens our relationships with partners, clients and the communities we serve. Our intent is to make Cresa a place where leaders are cultivated, and every person – from every walk of life – feels empowered to thrive.

Q2 2022 Calgary Downtown Office Occupier

Overall downtown vacancy has dropped slightly to 29.28% for Q2 and market activity has been slow and steady through the summer. We saw a modest amount of positive absorption of 140,372 sf due to companies solidifying their hybrid work policies. Going forward for the remainder of the year and into 2023, tenants looking to refresh their space or relocate, construction costs will be a pain point as long as inflation stays high.
