WALKER CORPORATION CANADA LIMITED TO WIN A PRESTIGIOUS AWARD AS THE WORLD'S LEADING PROPERTY PROFESSIONALS GATHER IN SAN DIEGO

October 2009

Top property companies including Walker Corporation Canada Limited are congregating at The US Grant Hotel in San Diego on November 12th at an important industry event. The Americas Property Awards 2009 in association with The New York Times and KOHLER are run in conjunction with the International Property Awards, the world's most prestigious competition dedicated to finding the best real estate professionals across the globe for the last 15 years.

Walker Corporation Canada Limited – a wholly owned subsidiary of Walker Corporation Pty Limited Australia - was delighted to be informed it has won an award in the category of Best Development (over 5 residences) (Canada). Having gained this high recommendation 46°North Resort Inc is now entitled to display the Americas Property Awards' logo with pride. This symbol of excellence will be recognised and appreciated by the public who are becoming increasingly well informed and discerning about the properties they seek to buy.
Entries are judged by a panel of professionals whose collective knowledge of the property industry is second to none and unsurpassed by any other property awards. This year's judges include Ben Wood, industry head property markets of Google UK; Peter Bolton King, group chief executive of the National Federation of Property Professionals; Imtiaz Farookhi, chief executive of the National House Building Council; Christopher Hall, president elect of FIABCI; Wilhelm Harnish, Master Builders of Australia (MBA); Thijs Stoffer, International Consortium of Real Estate Agents Association (ICREA); Helen Shield, editor-in-chief of International Homes magazine and Gillian Farr, head of design of Laura Ashley Home.

All in all, there are 36 different categories and up to two of the most outstanding entries in each category are given a four-star award, while the best overall entry is given a five-star. Every five-star winner's entry is then re-examined to determine which companies go forward to be re-judged for the ultimate World's Best Award. Walker Corporation Canada is now eagerly awaiting the gala presentation dinner to find out exactly how successful the company has been.

Luc Corneli, Vice President of Walker Corporation Canada Limited said of the award, "We are very excited about this award as it represents our commitment and efforts in creating a unique development in 46°North. We believe in our project and it is gratifying to know that others recognise our standard of excellence and commitment."
