Our Story

The Minto Story

Minto's legacy of exceptional quality and craftsmanship is recognized industry-wide; however, we're most proud when we share the keys to wonderful memories at every stage of life.

Whether it's the excitement of a first apartment, the possibilities of a second home to grow into, temporary housing while you're in transition or the accomplishment of an empty nest, Minto is there every step of the way.

With operations in Ottawa, Toronto, Calgary, London and Florida - and plans to expand even further - our focus on what matters is apparent in every one of our apartments, furnished suites, homes, condominiums and commercial spaces. We've changed a great deal since our early days, but one thing that remains the same is our commitment to creating better places.

Our Mill

From a vacant barn to a larger mill on Merivale Road
in Ottawa, we made our own products to ensure
our high standards for quality were met.

Over 60 years of doing what's right

Award 2014 Green Bbuilder 2014

When four brothers, Gilbert, Irving, Lorry and Louis Greenberg established Minto in 1955, they made the decision to do what's right - always. Today, we're proud to say that day in and day out, we continue to provide outstanding service to our homeowners, residents and tenants while making meaningful contributions to our communities, our planet and everyone at Minto.

Continuing the Legacy of Leadership and Commitment

Like their fathers before them, Alan and Roger Greenberg shared a vision for doing what's right as former President of Minto's Canadian multi-residential business and CEO at The Minto Group. Their long-standing commitment to the Ontario rental industry, customer service, community involvement, and sustainability was honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award presented at the Federation of Rental-housing Providers of Ontario's (FRPO) MAC Awards Gala on December 3, 2015.
