Get Moving on Your Immovables!

A common challenge for all real property organizations around the world is how to streamline costs and optimize efficiencies in the management of their portfolios. As managers of the largest real property portfolio in Canada, we continue to ask ourselves many questions...

  • Do we have too much real property?
  • Do we know what we need and what to keep?
  • Is the portfolio performing well and meeting expectations? 
  • Can we afford to maintain what we have?
  • Are we missing opportunities for enterprise solutions?
  • How can mechanisms, such as public private partnerships, meet our objectives?

Well, let the RPIC Real Property National Workshop help you in answering these very questions! This year’s theme, “Get Moving on Your Immovables”, is all about helping the federal real property community put the puzzle pieces in place to enable change that will lead to concrete results and get the community closer to its objective of effective and efficient stewardship of its assets.

We want to get you “Moving on Your Immovables”!

Get moving” Consider planning and delivery of assets and services through public private partnerships and other alternative procurement mechanisms.

Get moving” Establish performance targets, metrics and benchmarks to support government/organizational objectives.

Get moving” Develop portfolio plans for assets and services with opportunities to collaborate for enterprise solutions.

Get moving” Plan your workforce of the future to ensure you have the skills and expertise required in this changing environment.

This premier National Workshop will inspire all public sector real property experts to “get moving” on finding new ways of doing business in the management of the multi-billion dollar asset base we are so proud of in Canada. This is a complex task and delegates will find answers to these many questions from our many partners in the public and private sectors. Attend the plenary sessions and concurrent presentations, network with colleagues and industry professionals, and visit the many trade show exhibits to find out the latest trends, tips and tools!

In addition, delegates will hear from senior federal executives on key government initiatives, policy and program developments and the importance of continuing to build strategic relationships!

And don’t forget the professional development days to hone your knowledge and skills. This year’s workshop features training on: facility management and maintenance; building management and environmental impacts; energy efficiencies in assets; and, costing.
