as an organization. Their particular backgrounds in Canadian real estate are 
important as we continue to execute the REIT's growth strategy through 
acquisitions. We look forward to their contributions and insights."

fundraising knowledge that is vital to the growth of both Mainstreet's and the 
REIT's business." 
Mr. White most recently served as a Senior Vice President in the Private Funds 
Group of Brookfield Asset Management. Prior to that, he held senior roles in
