About BOMA Nova ScotiaThe Building Owners & Managers Association (BOMA) Nova Scotia is one of the eleven federated locals that together form BOMA Canada, which represents over 3,100 Canadian members in the industry and over 2.1 Billion square feet of office space. Since its origins in the United States in 1907 BOMA has grown and prospered, dedicating itself to establishing best practices and researching real estate topics that would be valuable to commercial real estate managers, operators and suppliers. Our mandate at BOMA Nova Scotia is to provide commercial real estate leadership and support throughout Nova Scotia.
Mission StatementTo actively represent our members, through education, networking and lobbying, in matters affecting the ownership, management and operation of commercial properties.

Excerpted from the 2021 BOMA NS AGM Package
Over the past year BOMA Nova Scotia has had to change the way we operate and how we interact with our members. We have also been there to support our members through their own transitions and adaptations. From April onwards we offered COVID-related resources and webinars, represented the industry at provincial discussions and meetings, and put new technology in place to connect people.
One big change has obviously been the way we provide programming to our members. We were fortunate to be able to host our Fall Golf Tournament, however all other events and presentations have moved online. We have been delighted to see some different members attending the online presentations, but we know this format doesn’t suit everyone. As soon as we can offer hybrid programming, with the option to meet and network in person, we will do so.
We are excited to offer our 2021 Golf Tournament on Thursday, June 17th this year at Glen Arbour. This is an event we can offer with physical distancing, and we look forward to seeing you on the course.
The BOMA Nova Scotia Board continues to work on strategic planning initiatives to ensure we move our organization forward. Implementation strategies have included a new website with member-only interactive options, videoconferencing technologies, and we are also pleased to have moved into our new office in downtown Halifax.
I look forward to seeing and connecting with each of you, in person, soon. Take care and stay safe!
We're postponing our 2021 Golf Tournament to September 21st
There is still time to apply for the Vyetta Sunderland Scholarship, offered by BOMI Education Canada in partnership with BOMI International.
