Two of Skyline’s co-founders, brothers Jason and Martin Castellan, started their rental business while still at university. They purchased a home near their school, and slept in the basement while renting out the upper-floor bedrooms to other students. Over time they purchased 52 rental homes, before entering the apartment business in 1999.

Along with their good friend Roy Jason Ashdown, the Castellan brothers grew the business into a true leader in the Canadian apartment industry. Their passion and flair for real estate, coupled with their decades of experience in the business, has cultivated a unique company culture based on drive, friendliness and inclusiveness. All three co-founders still actively run Skyline today, now managing over 600 employees.

Skyline has been recognized for its commitments to company culture, customer service, community service, and environmental excellence through a number of industry awards, and is always striving to achieve new heights.

Skyline Living operates under the Skyline Group of Companies, managing the Skyline Apartment REIT.
