2022 Real Estate Forum Private Reception

The TDS Real Estate Law Practice Group is passionate about the commercial real estate and property development sector in Manitoba and we are excited to be part of the renewal of our city.

By all accounts the 2022 Winnipeg Real Estate Forum was a big success, and it was our pleasure to once again be a platinum sponsor.

We provide a full range of services - from basic conveyancing work, to advising on commercial sales and purchases, leasing, development, construction, property management and condominium development and management, to realization on security through foreclosure and insolvency remedies. A number of our senior practitioners are also frequently involved in advising and assisting clients in structuring transactions, both in real estate transactions and, through co-operative efforts with other practice groups within the firm, in corporate-commercial transactions and in litigation matters having real estate elements to them.

We would like to share some resources with you that may be of value to you and your company. Listed below are links to articles and resources that we hope are relevant to your business.


  • A Primer on Expropriation (PDF)
    Author: TDS lawyer Antoine Hacault
    This paper serves as a refresher on basic principles of expropriation and compensation. The main focus of this paper is to provide a checklist of due compensation for the category of "disturbance" which is generally broadly defined to include any costs, expenses and losses arising of or incidental to the expropriation.
  • Guide to Doing Business in Canada: Manitoba (PDF)
    Author: TDS lawyer Silvia de Sousa
    A great resource if you are looking to do business in Manitoba including information on business enterprises, employment, taxation, competition law, intellectual property and more.
