Welcome to the web site
of the National Executive Forum on Public Property!
The Forum promotes the development and sharing of knowledge and techniques for managing public property, by providing a neutral venue and a collegial environment for networking by senior executives responsible for the management of public property at all levels of government across Canada. Government members are supported by Academic Advisors, Forum Advisors, Associates from private business having an interest in our objectives, and International Associates from government organizations, individuals and non-governmental businesses with an interest in the mission of the Forum. The Forum meets it objectives by holding symposia and retreats on timely issues, circulating newsletters, and providing information on this web site, as well as supporting informal networks of members.
Founded in 1998 as an unincorporated non-profit group of Queen’s University, and formerly known as the Queen’s Land Forum, we have been growing ever since. Membership is organization based and is by invitation only. As of December 31, 2011, twenty-one federal, provincial and municipal government Member organizations reported that their total staff of 15,000 were responsible for advising on real estate policy and strategy and managing:
- 6.82 million acres of land,
- 49,000 buildings having a total of 101 billion sq. ft. of floor area and a replacement value of $80 billion,
- workspace for 282,000 FTEs, and
- an annual capital budget of $$2.2 billion.
For those interested in the many aspects and issues of managing public property, you will find valuable information in our web site’s Library of research papers, reports and conference presentations. For Forum members, the Members-Only section provides additional information about members, newsletters and annual reports, and a members-only library containing additional papers and reports.
