During a meeting with Toronto Mayor, John Tory, Sajwani praised Toronto's diverse community, which continues to attract highly skilled professionals from around the world as well as international investors looking to get a foothold in Toronto's lucrative property sector. Strong demand for condominiums and family homes in the Greater Toronto Area continues to make the city an ideal investment location.

"In a way, Toronto and Dubai share a number of similarities, as both cities continue to attract skilled professionals and investors who are looking for a stable, friendly market to raise their families while offering strong investment returns on property purchases," said Sajwani. "Both cities are leaders in attracting top talent from around the world, both offer a rich, culturally-diverse environment that is safe, vibrant, and family friendly, but most importantly, both cities have a burgeoning property market that continues to show resilience and is able to deliver strong returns."

Toronto has experienced surging property prices for the last few years due to continued demand by citizens and foreigners.   Canada's federal housing agency, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. (CMHC) , said the current stabilization in prices will be short-lived, and is an immediate market reaction to the Ontario government's recent introduction of a 15 percent tax on foreign buyers, aimed at slowing down overheating housing prices.

DAMAC continues to explore international opportunities overseas that would enable it to expand its global footprint beyond the Middle East. On 14 August 2017, it announced its first-half 2017 financial results, which showed booked sales of approximately USD 1.1 billion and deliveries of over 1,000 units at its DAMAC Hills master development, bringing the total number of units delivered there to more than 3,100.

Since 2002, DAMAC has delivered more than 19,000 homes and has over 44,000 units in various stages of development. The Company's footprint extends across the Middle East with major projects in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan, Lebanon, the United Kingdom, and Oman.
