Expand Your Empire (EYE) is one of the largest student run real estate development conferences in Canada. 

Teams of 4 undergraduate students will be assigned an underutilized site from the current real estate market. Candidates are given a month to analyze, design and formulate a development proposal that signifies the highest and most efficient use for the subject property. Candidates will be required to construct a detailed financial analysis, valuation, design and market analysis while incorporating sustainable features in their proposal. The students will present to a panel of judges from some of the largest firms in Canada, including but not limited to; Cushman and Wakefield, Cadillac Fairview, Colliers, RioCan REIT, Allied, Altus Group, Ivanhoe Cambridge and many more. In addition, as an accounting student who has completed 4 co-op terms in public accounting and worked on real estate clients, my goal for 2019 is to expand our sponsors to include the Big 4 Accounting Firms.  

Expand Your Empire is a once in a lifetime opportunity with a $10,000 Cash prize and recognition to students!

Students will have the opportunity to meet powerful industry leaders through our numerous networking events and engaging workshops scheduled throughout the conference. Best of all, students have the chance to present at a world class competition and win a grand prize of $10,000

This is not a competition just for real estate students. 

Mixed teams made up of multiple disciplines are encouraged!


If students have an interest in finance, architecture, civil engineering, urban planning, interior-design, or marketing, this is the competition for them! EYE will allow them to build upon their skills and give them the opportunity to meet experts in all fields.
