Canadian Real Estate Investment Trust (CREIT) is Founding Sponsor of the Easter Seals Drop Zone and helped to pioneer one of the most exciting fundraising events in Canada. Ordinary individuals are challenged to summon their courage and face their fears by fundraising and rappelling from downtown skyscrapers all over the country in support of Canadians with disabilities.


“The message we’re trying to get out is…Are you willing to do something that you’re afraid to do or that you don’t want to do, to help someone else? Today’s event (The Drop Zone) will raise well over $200,000 for the day, but it’s all for the right cause.”

Stephen Johnson

Since 2005, CREIT has been a strong supporter of the Easter Seals Drop Zone.  In addition to lending its buildings for the cause, CREIT also encourages its employees and business partners to participate in or sponsor the event.

In 2015, CREIT went above and beyond by rallying a team of 41 superheroes who raised more than $165,000 – the most ever raised by a single team in the history of the event.

CREIT is a real estate investment trust focused on accumulating a portfolio of high-quality real estate assets and delivering the benefits of real estate ownership to Unitholders. The primary benefit is a reliable and, over time, increasing monthly cash distribution. CREIT owns a portfolio of 160 retail, office and industrial properties.
