About the BPE Group of Companies

BPE Group has a unique and wide-ranging portfolio of businesses across various industries. All of our businesses bear this in common: we identified something that was missing in our local economy and we committed ourselves to bring it into existence and improve our community.


BPE Development

At BPE Development, corporate values are much more than a program or a policy – they define who we are and inform the decisions we make.

We strive to have a long-lasting, positive influence on the communities where we operate and on the people we employ.

We are committed to being a responsible and caring developer of properties where individuals will feel at home the moment they walk through our doors. We provide quality products and services that surpass our customers’ expectations. And we involve employees and clients in the common goal of preserving and protecting the planet for generations to come.

Let’s build a more sustainable future together.

BPE Rentals

If you are looking for a residential unit to call home, a commercial space to grow your business, or a conveniently located, fully reserved parking space, BPE Rentals is here to help.

We understand that your home is not just a place to live, but a space to create memories. Therefore, we place a focus on the details, on the history, on the community, and, most importantly, on the people who live in our buildings and work within our company.

Our rental units feature authentic character and modern upgrades. We blend together the old and new while preserving the heritage of our renovated properties.

Kingston Aluminum Technology

In the time it takes you to read this, one million plastic bottles will have been purchased worldwide. About 10 per cent will be recycled. This plastic waste threatens wildlife, their habitats, and human health.

We’re shaking up the bottling industry with a better alternative to plastic bottles, glass bottles, and aluminum cans. Create your own design at katinc.ca.

Sanctuary Coworking is a flexible, all-inclusive shared workspace, equipped with everything you need to grow your big ideas and help your business thrive.

Located in the heart of downtown Kingston, we offer private & team offices, hot desks, collaborative workspaces, meeting rooms and a beautiful event space.

Built within the walls of a 19th century limestone church, at SC you’ll discover inspiration in the form of heritage charm and a dynamic network of likeminded professionals.

The Smith Hotel

Once a 19th-century limestone church, The Smith Hotel is so named for the craftsmen, artisans and makers who have moulded and shaped it into what it is today. Just as their workmanship can be defined by a commitment to function and beauty, so too have we curated our 10 unique lofts with these same intentions.

From the moment you arrive, you’ll see just what makes The Smith so unconventional. Apart from the stairs down to the lofts, everything about our handcrafted stay has been thoughtfully elevated.

The Belvedere Hotel


Welcome to The Belvedere, where historic opulence meets modern refinement. Inspired by the property’s unique history as a luxury mansion, we’ve taken a contemporary approach to the Art Deco movement of the 1920s.

Intimate with just the right amount of extravagance, at The Belvedere we offer a comfortable stay complete with all the amenities of an upscale boutique hotel. Located just two blocks from Kingston’s waterfront, we look forward to introducing you to everything our beautiful city has to offer.

Unity Farm Inn & Spa


Unifying the old and new, rustic and modern, Unity’s creation will rejuvenate this historic farm, ensuring its longevity for future generations.

Our vision for Unity Farm, Inn & Spa is to create a tranquil, relaxing space and modern working farm for guests who travel and Kingstonians alike to relax, recharge and reconnect. While we’re not yet ready to accept bookings or resumes, we continue to make progress in preparing this 35-acre site.
