Dream Office REIT
Dream Office REIT is a premier office landlord in downtown Toronto with approximately 3.5 million square feet owned and managed. We have carefully curated an investment portfolio of high-quality assets in irreplaceable locations in one of the finest office markets in the world.
We have been and remain committed to:
- Managing our business to provide cash flows and superior risk-adjusted returns, while managing our assets to maximize value over the longer term;
- Continual improvement in the quality of our portfolio by investing in assets through upgrades, intensification and redevelopment in order for our buildings to be attractive to our tenants and selectively disposing of assets with lower potential for long-term income growth;
- Building and maintaining a strong, flexible and resilient balance sheet; and
- Maintaining a REIT status that satisfies the REIT exception under the SIFT legislation in order to provide certainty to unitholders with respect to taxation of distributions.
Dream Office Management Corp. provides real estate services – including property management and leasing – to properties owned by Dream Office REIT as well as for other property owners. This structure provides us with the opportunity to earn revenue and profits from existing and future third party management contracts. We also believe that real estate is an operating business that requires active management in order to enhance value, increase yield and reduce risk to investors.

Board of Trustees
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.
Dream Office REIT’s Committees assist in the effective functioning of the Board and help ensure that the views of Independent Trustees* are effectively represented. The Board has established three committees.
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 Office 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 Office REIT’s systems and procedures for financial reporting and internal controls and the performance of Dream Office 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 Office 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 Office REIT’s external auditors and internal audit function, without management present, to discuss and review specific issues as appropriate.
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.
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.
