Our Story

Nautical Lands Group

Founded by CEO Kirk Hoppner over 30 years ago, NLG is an independent company with extensive experience in land acquisition, planning, finance, development and operations within the over-50 healthcare and senior residential sector.

Our Wellings communities uniquely, do not offer a care component, and are globally awarded for both design and concept, embracing an ageless mindset. Along with our members, we are trailblazing a new way to thrive and perceive living in retirement.


Through a committed vision, we have become Ontario’s premier owner, builder, and operator of luxury apartment-style residences and suites for adults over 55.

Our passion is to develop communities that we would be proud to call home ourselves and strive, at all levels of the company, to address every resident’s need. We aim to create a community setting for each of our properties that fosters the foundation for a relaxing yet vibrant way of living for anyone choosing to live with us.
