Our story

We're Walton. We started our business in Calgary in 1979 and now we work around the globe.

The company was founded in Calgary in 1979 by the Doherty family. The Doherty's started by acquiring small portions of property through family and friends. They would wait until development approached the property and then, the Doherty's would sell the land to third-party builders and developers.

Today, Walton is a privately-owned real estate investment and development group. For 41 years, we have continued to partner with investors, developers, and homebuilders to research, purchase, manage, plan and develop land.

We build communities that will stand the test of time. We want to build hometowns for present and future generations.

Our Story


We take a long-term approach to land planning and development.

We conduct extensive research as part of our planning and development process and we design our developments in collaboration with local residents for the benefit of all community stakeholders.
