Skyline’s investment portfolio has prided itself in offering 100% Canadian investments that are stable to our investors and is constantly growing to create new opportunities. Our most innovative venture in the portfolio is the Skyline Clean Energy Fund (SCEF) which invests in large-scale, energy -producing cash flow projects across Ontario.
Environmental stewardship has always been a mandate across the Skyline Group of Companies and for nearly 15 years management has recognized that “going green” is a win-win decision across all aspects of the company. Going green not only benefits our investors and the bottom line, it also has benefits for our stakeholders, residential and commercial tenants, staff – not to mention the planet.

In staying true to Skyline’s commitment to sustainability, SCEF was created to invest in projects that generate emissions-free power and solar energy. The objective for investors is to generate a positive social and environmental impact alongside the potential for attractive financial returns, through the combination of cash-flowing revenues from solar and other alternative assets, and further growth opportunity through the re-investment of that cash flow into other private investment opportunities.
This innovative investment opportunity is truly exciting for Skyline, as we not only believe in providing a sustainable future but are confident to invest in the growth of the industry.
