Qualico’s business units embrace an entrepreneurial spirit
In total, Qualico has over 40 sub-companies commonly called business units. Each of these business units falls under various business verticals. These verticals are single-family and multi-family homebuilding, commercial development and leasing, land acquisition and development, property management, and building materials supply and services.
In most regions, there can be several business units operating within a single vertical, such as single-family homebuilding. However, each business unit focuses on a specific segment of the market. Some business units may share the same name in different regions, but these brands each have a unique strategy or value proposition in their local market.

We are an industry leader with years of long-term expertise, trusted financial partnerships, and a strong mix of diversified business verticals. These elements and more make up our staying power, the special blend of unique qualities that has kept us thriving.
The ongoing path of Qualico’s success
The story of Qualico is the story of its founders, Dr. David Friesen and Katherine Friesen. Established in Winnipeg as a homebuilder, Qualico expanded to Calgary and Edmonton within five years. Today, Qualico is the largest privately-owned integrated real estate company in Western Canada.
