Proceeds not allocated to the acquisition will be used to repay a portion of the REIT's credit facilities.

"The acquisition of the Edmonton property is consistent with our core strategy of acquiring high-quality buildings in strong secondary markets, tenanted with either government or credit rated organizations."

On the Toronto Stock Exchange, True North units closed up five cents at $6.90 on Monday.
