Our team is made up of the industry’s smartest, most dedicated, knowledgeable and experienced real estate investment, portfolio management and financial professionals that have a proven track record of creating value.
Our board of trustees is made up of highly experienced, dedicated and knowledgeable professionals who each have expertise in all key areas of Dream’s businesses.
A Trustee that is independent within the meaning of NI 58–101. An Independent Trustee is one who is not an employee or executive officer of Dream Residential REIT and who is free from any direct or indirect relationship which could, in the view of the Board, be reasonably expected to interfere with independent judgment.
The Audit Committee is responsible for monitoring Dream Residential REIT’s systems and procedures for financial reporting and internal controls and the performance of Dream Residential REIT’s external auditors. It is responsible for reviewing certain public disclosure documents prior to their approval by the full Board and release to the public including, among others, Dream Residential REIT’s quarterly and annual financial statements and management’s discussion and analysis. The Audit Committee is also responsible for recommending to the Board the firm of chartered professional accountants to be nominated for appointment as the external auditor, and for approving the assignment of any non-audit work to be performed by the external auditor. The Audit Committee meets regularly in private session with Dream Residential REIT’s external auditors and internal audit function, without management present, to discuss and review specific issues as appropriate.
Applicable law and the Declaration of Trust requires the Board to have an Audit Committee consisting of at least three Trustees, each of whom must be independent and “financially literate” within the meaning of NI 52-110.
The full responsibilities of the Audit Committee are set out in a written charter, which is reviewed annually by the Board. The charter is available for review under the Charters and Policies section.
