Founded in 1991 by Eric Carlson, Anthem is a real estate development, investment, and management company with a portfolio of 14,600 homes in various stages of development, 5 million square feet of commercial property, and over 5,000 acres of land slated for development.
From its initial focus on land acquisition and multi-family residential development, Anthem expanded in seven years from a team of 15 and 10 projects to a firm of 45 and projects in Alberta, Ontario, and the United States. Its business scope also grew to include office, retail, and residential homes.
In March 1998, Anthem went public on the Toronto Stock Exchange. However, due to the uncertainty of the stock market, this proved not to be in the best interests of the company. In May 2004, Anthem became a private company again. Since then, Anthem has grown from 100 to 400 people through the expansion of the scale and scope of its operations, and the acquisition in 2014 of United Communities, GBD Communities, and Premier United Communities.
Anthem believes that community issues, big and small, cannot be solved by budget-constrained governments alone. Contributions of capital and creativity from private enterprise can help make the world a better place faster. Through its support of community programs — such as Homework Club, Project Chef, and streetohome —and sponsorships — like their long-time support of three-time Canadian Olympian, Georgia Simmerling — Anthem strives to make a difference.
