Real Estate for sale from the Government of Canada – general public

All Crown lands in Canada are owned by Her Majesty the Queen. The administration of these lands is allocated to various government departments, agencies, and Crown corporations to sustain the delivery of government programs and services.

My research indicates that the Government of Canada does not sell many real estate or properties to the public. Where workable, properties that are no longer required by the federal government or its departments or agencies follow either of the two methods, the policy’s routine disposal process, or its strategic disposal process.

However, Real Estate Online is an internet-based web site of federal properties for sale to the public. On the Real Estate Online web site, you can search and retrieve property listings. Further, this web site will assist you in finding federal property surplus by geographic location, price range as well as the type of property. If you are interested in buying real estate from the federal government, you may visit their web site at www.pwgsc.gc.ca/govland/ or call 1-888-GOV-LAND and in French call 1-888-Fed-Prop.
