TORONTO, Ontario

Oxford Properties Group (‘Oxford’), a leading global investor, asset manager and developer of commercial real estate, today announced its partnership with The Onyx Initiative. The Onyx Initiative is a non-profit designed to address the pervasive gap that exists in the recruitment and selection of Black college and university students for roles in corporate Canada. Onyx launched in October 2020 and has since seen a slew of successes, including over 300 applications for its Scholars Program and the selection of 170 participants for the first cohort; both the result of a targeted outreach and engagement campaign with regional Black Student Associations, campus career centres, community organizations, and prominent social media forums.
