Strategic Development Management and Community Relations

Mary Lapointe is an experienced real estate professional who has worked in commercial development management and community relations for over 25 years in both the public and private sectors and in many communities across British Columbia.

Mary‘s consulting work focuses largely on creating and implementing strategic engagement programs for developers who require community consultation and project endorsement as a component of the approvals process. Working closely with development teams, Mary draws on her experience in large-scale project approvals/management and communications to create customized engagement plans that address the key issues facing both the developer and the community while achieving approval-related consultation objectives.

Mary’s experience in strategic community relations derives from the time she spent managing the large and varied development portfolio for BCR Properties Ltd./BC Rail Ltd. (Provincial Crown Corporation), her role as Director of Industrial Development for Vancouver-based Anthem Properties Ltd., her consulting career in Vancouver as an associate with Pottinger & Associates and later in the Okanagan as an independent consultant. She has worked with many clients on a range of project and client types.
