About Us

Norm Foster Properties is a Canadian real estate development company offering high-quality, sustainable living spaces in Victoria, BC, and Ottawa, ON. Our mission is to provide healthier homes and rentals for ecologically minded families and communities.

Founded in 2004, we started with our first five-plex rental property in Ottawa and have since expanded our rentals in that area, along with additional rentals and new home developments in Victoria. In all of our renovations and building projects, we strive to conserve natural resources and improve living conditions, while reducing costs for buyers and tenants.

Our company is named in honour of the late Norm Foster — a model-making engineer at Bell Northern Research. Foster invented innovative products, with meticulous attention to detail, care and craftsmanship. The legacy of his work remains the inspiration behind our quality, sustainable homes, rentals and renovations today.
