A Brief History of the British Columbia Region

Metro Vancouver shows evolution of Qualico

Qualico’s history in Vancouver and the surrounding area is different from the tale of expansion into other Western Canadian cities. When Qualico came to Metro Vancouver in the early 1970s, efforts were focused on building multi-family rental units. By the 1990s, Qualico moved into the single-family home market and began Foxridge Homes, which today is one of the largest residential builders in the area. In the early 2000s, Qualico established operations in commercial and community development and introduced multi-family condo projects under the StreetSide Developments brand.
