Edmonton, Alberta – TheNewswire – October 20, 2021 – Yorkton Equity Group Inc. (“YEG” the “Company” or “Yorkton”) (TSX.V: YEG), is pleased to announce the successful closing of the sale of the 193 unit apartment condominium development project (the “Project”) located in the City Centre of Surrey in Metro Vancouver, British Columbia, one of the fastest growing cities in Canada. The Company owns approximately 25% of the Yorkton 108 Limited Partnership units of the Project and will receive on a pro rata basis approximately 25% of the net distribution of the Project.
Proceeds from the sale will provide YEG the opportunity to redeploy the capital to continue its accretive acquisition strategy.

With the anticipated post-COVID boom, historical low interest rates, and anticipated increase in immigration levels recently announced by the federal government, there is an unprecedented window of opportunity to invest in real estate, and YEG fully intends to take advantage of that opportunity.
