Le Fevre & Company

About Us

The Visionary
Chris Le Fevre arrived in Canada from England in 1970 and has been at the helm of his own real estate and property development company for 50 years.

A self made man, Chris has never forgotten his humble beginnings and maintains that "affordability" be a key ingredient in all of his projects. He often goes 'where others fear to tread', and with unique hands on ingenuity. It has been said that his "rugby attitude" to life makes things happen, and this attitude has led him and his company to create and develop many diverse and successful projects.

The award-winning, heritage conversions in Old Town Victoria showcase Chris's passion for the old as well as the new, as he incorporates recycled materials in many elements of his modern designs. This is best expressed in the construction and operation of Middle Beach Lodge in Tofino, an oceanfront, resort getaway, that is an icon of West Coast lodging. As well, his ongoing heritage restorations in Victoria have created exciting affordable living spaces in historic buildings that might otherwise have fallen to the wrecker's ball.

The $300 million RailYards development on the inner harbour of Victoria offers a more contemporary interpretation of Chris's creative philosophy. This start-to-finish, Le Fevre project is an exciting showcase of well conceived and affordable, inner-city living.

Preserving the Past – Building the Future
From coast villages of Vancouver Island to Old Town Victoria, and thence to the Rocky Mountain town of Revelstoke and Eastward to the prairie city of Saskatoon. Finally, a turn South to the high desert of remote and profound Joshua Tree in California.
Le Fevre & Company has made it their duty to enhance the communities they are privileged to operate in.

It's Chris's philosophy that affordability is the backbone of all his company's operations. "We cannot build and develop for just a select few - that does not suit who I am." Chris's ambition to create new modern living is exemplified in his urban renewal housing developments from Victoria, Tofino, Revelstoke, Saskatoon and now in California.

Chris also believes in preserving, wherever humanly possible, the flora and fauna surrounding his buildings' footprints. He also works assiduously to recycle the historical elements of anything that can be saved so that it can 'live another life'.
