SUMMARY OF Q1- 2021 RESULTS OF OPERATIONS Strong Operating Results CAPREIT has maintained a very high level of rent collection, with over 99% of rents collected year to dateOn turnovers, monthly residential rents for the three months ended March 31, 2021 increased by 3.4% on 4.4% of the Canadian portfolio, compared to an increase of 13.5% on 3.3% of the Canadian portfolio for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The reduced increases are primarily due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the overall rental market.On renewals, monthly residential rents for the three months ended March 31, 2021 increased by 0.9% on 9.3% of the Canadian portfolio, compared to 2.2% on 17.6% of the Canadian portfolio for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The reduced increases are primarily due to rent freezes enacted as a result of the COVID-19 pandemicNet AMR for the stabilized portfolio as at March 31, 2021 increased by 0.9% compared to March 31, 2020, while occupancies slightly decreased to 97.2%NOI increased by 2.4% for the stabilized portfolio for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to a NOI increase of 5.7% for the stabilized portfolio for the three months ended March 31, 2020NOI margin for the total portfolio increased to 64.5% for the three months ended March 31, 2021 from 63.9% for the three months ended March 31, 2020NFFO per unit was up 1.6% for the three months ended March 31, 2021 compared to last year Strong and Flexible Balance Sheet CAPREIT's financial position remains strong, with $578.3 million of available liquidity on CAPREIT's Acquisition and Operating FacilityManagement expects to raise between $900 million and $950 million in total mortgage renewals and refinancings for 2021, excluding financings on acquisitionsCAPREIT closed mortgage refinancing of $38.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, with top-ups of $29.0 million with a weighted average term to maturity of 7.6 years and a weighted average interest rate of 2.23% and discharges of $79.7 millionFor the three months ended March 31, 2021, excluding the impact of foreign exchange loss of $125.3 million, the fair value of investment properties increased by $53.3 million, or 0.4% "Following another year of record performance in 2020, our growth and strong operating performance continued in the first quarter of the new year,” commented Mark Kenney, President and CEO. “Looking ahead, we are confident we will see another strong year in 2021 as we capitalize on our proven asset allocation strategy and operating platform, the stability of our balance sheet and record levels of liquidity, and the continuing strength and resiliency of the residential rental sector of the Canadian real estate business."

Weighted average gross rent per square foot for Canadian residential suites was approximately $1.65 as at March 31, 2021.

Overall, suite turnovers in the Canadian residential portfolio (excluding co-ownerships) during the three months ended March 31, 2021 resulted in monthly rent increasing by approximately $48 or 3.4% compared to an increase of approximately $177 or 13.5% for for the same period last year, primarily due to the strong rental markets in Ontario, Nova Scotia, and British Columbia. The reduced turnover increases are mainly due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic as discussed in Section II of the 2021 Q1 MD&A under The COVID-19 Pandemic. Monthly rents on lease renewals on the Canadian residential portfolio (excluding co-ownerships) for the three months ended March 31, 2021 resulted in monthly rent increasing by approximately $11 or 0.9% compared to an increase of approximately $28 or 2.2% for for the same period last year. Management believes the reduced renewal increases are mainly due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic rent freezes as discussed in Section II of the 2021 Q1 MD&A under The COVID-19 Pandemic. For the Netherlands portfolio, suite turnovers in the residential suite portfolio during the three months ended March 31, 2021 resulted in monthly rent increasing by approximately €118 or 13.7% compared to an increase of approximately €65 or 7.7% for the same period last year. As the Netherlands lease renewals occur once a year in July, there were no renewals increases for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020. The tenant notices for rent renewal increases beginning on July 1, 2021, with a weighted average rental increase of 2.3%, have been served to 94% of the Dutch liberalized residential suites, which comprise 58.5% of the total Netherlands portfolio. Given the current market environment with the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a high level of uncertainty establishing current market rents. As such it is difficult to estimate the differential between market rents and current rents. Management expects market rents to stabilize in the medium term. Estimated Net Rental Revenue Run-Rate CAPREIT’s annualized net rental revenue run-rate as at March 31, 2021 grew to $863.5 million, up 2.7% from $840.6 million. Net rental revenue net of dispositions for the 12 months ended March 31, 2021 was $841.9 million (March 31, 2020 – $770.0 million). For further discussion regarding forecasts and guidance as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, please see Section II of the 2021 Q1 MD&A under The COVID-19 Pandemic for further details. NOI Stabilized properties for the three months ended March 31, 2021 are defined as all properties owned by CAPREIT continuously since December 31, 2019, and therefore do not take into account the impact on performance of acquisitions or dispositions completed during 2021 and 2020.

(2) Comprises R&M, wages, general and administrative, insurance, advertising, legal costs and bad debt. Operating Revenues For the three months ended March 31, 2021, total operating revenues for the total and stabilized portfolios increased compared to the same period last year, due to increases in monthly rents on renewals and turnovers, slightly offset by higher vacancy rates and increases in tenant inducements mainly in the Greater Toronto Area. Contributions from acquisitions further contributed to higher operating revenues for the total portfolio. Operating Expenses The stabilized operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2021 increased slightly compared to the same period last year primarily due to higher realty taxes, utility costs, bad debt, and insurance costs, partially offset by lower R&M costs. The increased realty taxes were due to higher property assessment values in Québec. The increased bad debt was driven by the economic instability caused by the COVID-19 pandemic leading to some commercial tenants and residential tenants forgoing rent payments. The increased insurance costs were driven by higher insurance rates. The reduced R&M costs were primarily due to the decreased ability to complete work given restrictions and limitations imposed in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic. NOI Margin For the three months March 31, 2021, the NOI margin on the total portfolio was 64.5% compared to 63.9% for the same period last year. NON-IFRS FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE For the three months ended March 31, 2021, basic NFFO per Unit increased by 1.6% compared to the same period last year, despite an approximate 1.3% increase in the weighted average number of Units outstanding. Management expects per Unit FFO and NFFO and related payout ratios to strengthen further in the medium term as a result of NOI contributions from recent acquisitions. PROPERTY CAPITAL INVESTMENTS During the three months ended March 31, 2021, CAPREIT made property capital investments (excluding head office assets) of $52.7 million compared to $42.7 million for the same period last year. Property capital investments include suite improvements, common areas and equipment, which generally tend to increase NOI more quickly. CAPREIT also continues to invest in environment-friendly and energy-saving initiatives, including energy-efficient boilers and lighting systems. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS On April 15, 2021, CAPREIT completed the buyout of an existing operating lease for a property located in midtown Toronto, Ontario, converting the ownership to a traditional fee simple property interest. The net buyout price was approximately $4.2 million, funded by cash. On May 5, 2021, CAPREIT completed the acquisition of a portfolio of four apartment properties totalling 484 suites in Oshawa, Ontario. The purchase price of $103.7 million was funded from CAPREIT's Acquisition and Operating Facility. On May 13, 2021, CAPREIT filed a base shelf prospectus in connection with the qualification to offer for sale and issue up to $2.0 billion of securities.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures CAPREIT prepares and releases unaudited consolidated interim financial statements and audited consolidated annual financial statements prepared in accordance with IFRS. In this and other earnings releases and investor conference calls, as a complement to results provided in accordance with IFRS, CAPREIT discloses financial measures not recognized under IFRS which do not have standard meanings prescribed by IFRS. These include stabilized net rental income (“Stabilized NOI”), Funds From Operations (“FFO”), Normalized Funds From Operations (“NFFO”), Adjusted Cash Flow from Operations (“ACFO”), FFO and NFFO per Unit amounts and FFO, NFFO and ACFO payout ratios, and Adjusted Cash Generated from Operating Activities (collectively, the “Non-IFRS Measures”). These Non-IFRS Measures are further defined and discussed in the MD&A released on May 13, 2021, which should be read in conjunction with this press release. Since these measures are not recognized under IFRS, they may not be comparable to similar measures reported by other issuers. CAPREIT presents the Non-IFRS measures because Management believes these Non-IFRS measures are relevant measures of the ability of CAPREIT to earn revenue and to evaluate its performance and cash flows. A reconciliation of these Non-IFRS measures is included in this press release below. The Non-IFRS measures should not be construed as alternatives to net income (loss) or cash flows from operating activities determined in accordance with IFRS as indicators of CAPREIT’s performance or the sustainability of our distributions.
