Emergence cultivates growth.

Emergence is a development management company that adapts to the needs of its development partners, bringing energy, expertise, and innovation to every project. We work with our partners, collaborating on projects that provide mutual benefits.
Emergence works with landowners, investors, local government, and nonprofit entities who seek to partner with an experienced and professional team that focuses on land acquisition, development, and lease-holding.
Emergence’s professional reputation is founded on repeated success in land acquisition, property repositioning, partnership building, pro forma development, and large-scale rezoning.
Emergence is committed to ensuring that developments create a meaningful sense of place, connect to the natural and built environments, and integrate the public realm in an innovative manner. Our partners trust us to provide them with a dependable, timely, cost-effective concept to completion development experience.

The Roots of Emergence. 

The idea was planted in 2018. It was the summer after a devastating and historic wildfire season that saw Kamloops transform into an evacuation hub for the thousands of British Columbians who had to flee their homes.

The recovery was just beginning, with new growth on the horizon. We were starting to emerge from the fire-scorched land, and that’s when Emergence sprouted up and came to life. We set out to help partners who had the ‘seed’ – land or investment – but required the nurturing elements to grow it.

At Emergence, we represent the soil, sun, and water – the nourishment needed to grow.

Grow with us.

Our mission is to create and participate in development opportunities and partnerships that adds value to our partners’ and Emergence’s investment portfolios.

Our vision is to be the most respected and trusted development company in the communities in which we work.

As a large BC not-for-profit it has been our distinct pleasure to partner with Emergence on our most recent project providing affordable housing here in British Columbia. Professional, diligent and attentive to detail – they have been a delight to work with as we have worked together to manage the various challenges and obstacles getting our project funded, zoned, priced and built (ongoing).

The YMCA had two years of off-and-on conversations with the City of Kamloops about our proposed generational redevelopment project. As soon as Emergence got involved, we gained significant respect. Doors opened, serious conversations were had, and there was a different level of trust. Our project is a lot further along and our Board of Directors is at ease knowing Emergence is leading the charge.
