Canada's Top Commercial Real Estate Magazine

We at Real Strategy have been working overtime to conduct research and strategize on the impact of COVID-19 on Ottawa’s commercial real estate sector and realized that we had the makings of a magazine. So we are pleased to present the inaugural issue of Real Spaces Magazine where we plan to share our thoughts and opinions alongside real statistics and trends about Ottawa’s commercial real estate market.

COVID-19 Return to Work Survey

Real Strategy Advisors have observed that the way organizations use office space may have irrevocably changed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. As part of our efforts to report on the “return to work” under COVID-19, we are taking the lead to survey local businesses and not-for-profits on how the pandemic has impacted their workplace and what their experience has been with respect to remote work. Information gathered through this survey will help increase our understanding of how the shift to remote work might affect future office space demand (both short and long term).

The survey should only take you 5 minutes to complete and your contribution will help inform the conversation on office space and culture with respect to Ottawa’s commercial real estate sector. Please be assured that your responses will remain confidential. Click the button below to take the survey and thank you in advance for your participation!
