Boardwalk REIT named winner of corporate reporting award in real estate

Boardwalk Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) won the 2016 CPA Canada Award of Excellence in Corporate Reporting – Real Estate.

Boardwalk REIT took home the Award of Excellence in Corporate Reporting in the Real Estate industry, beating out the tight competition with an informative and well-presented annual report.

Strong use of photos, graphics and charts enhanced the report’s effectiveness. A wealth of supplementary information went beyond the required disclosures, and discussions were well written and engaging. Judges praised the Letter to Unitholders for providing an abundance of information, as well as an excellent discussion of the past year’s performance in the context of goals and strategies.

Judges commended Boardwalk REIT’s corporate governance disclosures. A very professional code of ethics included the partnership’s core values. Pie charts depicted the number of women on the Board of Directors in a visually appealing and intuitive format.
