Creating a Global Real Estate Experience Locally

The 5th Annual Canada – Israel Real Estate Connection, April 21-27, 2018 in Toronto

 The Canada – Israel Real Estate Connection is an exclusive for-credit program designed to provide carefully selected Executive MBA and MBA students from Tel Aviv University, focussed on real estate, with an invaluable, learning experience at many of Canada’s most prominent financial, legal, development, business, policy and governance firms.

Included in the program are market overviews, site tours and business case presentations by banks, brokers, developers, pension plans, REIT’s, law firms and more.


A healthy and vibrant real estate sector is essential for economic growth, productivity, employment, and social justice. In order for Israel to meet the new economic and social challenges it has to deal with its current real estate challenges including a potential residential price bubble with very high costs of housing, an under developed REIT market and institutional investment portfolios focused on Israel with minimal geographic diversification.  

In 2013, Tel Aviv University’s Coller School of Management established the Alrov Institute for Real Estate Research to provide students and executives with up-to-date knowledge on the essential aspects of real estate theory and practice. This specialized program is contributing to and boosting the Israeli economy, improving market stability, encouraging entrepreneurship in this area, and improved transparency in the real estate sector in Israel.

Each year the Alrov Institute for Real Estate Research plans a study trip to Toronto, to learn about Canada’s most diverse and emerging real estate market.
