Investment Highlights


Starlight Western Canada Multi-Family (No. 2) Fund was established in November 2021 to indirectly acquire, own and operate a portfolio of newer vintage and newly constructed income-producing, multi-family real estate properties which are geographically diversified across Vancouver Island and the mainland Province of British Columbia, and that demonstrate compelling investment fundamentals as a result of supply-demand imbalance as well as barriers to new development.
