Please refer to the cautionary statements under the heading "Non-IFRS Financial Measures" and the reconciliations provided in this press release.Operating RevenuesFor the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, total operating revenues increased by 17.6% and 12.3%, respectively, compared to the same periods last year primarily due to the contribution from acquisitions, higher rent guideline increases, increased average monthly rents in the residential suite portfolio, and continuing strong occupancies. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, ancillary revenues, including parking, laundry and antenna income, rose by 14.8% and 6.3%, respectively, compared to the same periods last year, due to contributions from acquisitions and Management's continued focus on maximizing the revenue potential of its property portfolio. CAPREIT's annualized net rental revenue run-rate based on the average monthly rents in place on CAPREIT's share of residential suites and sites as at September 30, 2012 increased to $421.5 million, up 17.6% from $358.6 million as of September 30, 2011 primarily due to acquisitions completed within the past twelve months and strong rental growth. Net rental revenue for the twelve months ended September 30, 2012 was $372.7 million (2011 - $334.8 million).Portfolio Average Monthly Rents ("AMR")Total PortfolioProperties Owned Prior to September 30, 2011As at September 30,2012201120122011 (1)AMROcc. %AMROcc. %AMROcc. %AMROcc. %Average Residential Suites$1,02698.2$1,00898.7$1,03498.5$1,00798.7Average MHC Land Lease Sites$43598.8$633100.0$62899.8$633100.0Overall Portfolio Average$97298.2$99198.8$1,01698.6$99098.8(1)Prior period's comparable AMR and occupancy have been restated for properties disposed of between October 1, 2011 and September 30, 2012.Average monthly rents decreased slightly by 1.9% as at September 30, 2012 compared to the same period last year due to the acquisition of MHC land lease sites in the second quarter of 2012 in certain lower rent geographic regions, while occupancy remained at nearly full levels at 98.2% due to ongoing successful sales and marketing strategies and continued strength in the residential rental sector in the majority of CAPREIT's regional markets.Suite Turnovers and Lease RenewalsFor the Three Months Ended September 30,20122011Change in AMR% TurnoversChange in AMR% Turnovers$%& Renewals (1)$%& Renewals (1)Suite Turnovers21.72.19.516.01.610.7Lease Renewals32.83.225.415.01.525.9Weighted Average of Turnovers and Renewals29.82.915.31.5For the Nine Months Ended September 30,20122011Change in AMR% TurnoversChange in AMR% Turnovers$%& Renewals (1)$%& Renewals (1)Suite Turnovers21.72.120.911.91.224.2Lease Renewals34.33.355.714.31.454.6Weighted Average of Turnovers and Renewals30.83.013.51.3(1)Percentage of suites turned over or renewed during the period based on the total number of residential suites (excluding co-ownerships) held at the end of the period.The higher rate of growth in average monthly rents on lease renewals during the periods is primarily due to the higher guideline increases for 2012 (Ontario - 3.1%, British Columbia - 4.3%), which compares more favourably to the permitted guideline increases in 2011 (Ontario - 0.7%, British Columbia - 2.3%) and above guideline increases ("AGI") applied. Management continues to pursue applications for AGIs where it believes increases are supported by market conditions above the annual guideline to raise average monthly rents on lease renewals. For 2013, the permitted guideline increase in Ontario and British Columbia has been set at 2.5% and 3.8%, respectively. Operating Expenses Operating expenses as a percentage of revenues decreased for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 to 39.7% from 40.7% and 41.6% from 42.6% respectively, for the same periods last year. The improvement is primarily due to: (i) the diversification of the portfolio into regions with lower taxation rates, (ii) lower utility costs, and (iii) successful energy-saving initiatives and enhanced procurement strategies. Net Operating Income In the third quarter of 2012, NOI improved by $10.8 million or 19.6%, and the NOI margin increased to 60.3% from 59.3% for the same period last year. For the first nine months of 2012, NOI increased by $21.7 million or 14.1%, and the NOI margin improved to 58.4% from 57.4% for the same period last year. The significant improvements in NOI were primarily the result of acquisitions completed in the last 12 month period, and the combination of higher operating revenues and lower operating expenses. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, operating revenues for stabilized suites and sites increased 2.5% and 2.2%, respectively, and operating expenses decreased 0.6% and 0.7%, respectively, compared to the same periods last year. For the three and nine months ended September 30 2012, stabilized NOI increased by a significant 4.5% and 4.3%, respectively, compared to the same periods last year. NON-IFRS FINANCIAL MEASURESThree Months EndedNine Months EndedSeptember 30,September 30,2012201120122011NFFO (000s)$39,86629,252$98,997$78,652NFFO Per Unit - Basic$0.435$0.388$1.131$1.047Cash Distributions Per Unit$0.277$0.270$0.817$0.810NFFO Payout Ratio65.3%72.0%74.7%80.0%NFFO Effective Payout Ratio50.9%56.6%57.3%62.4%Normalized Funds From Operations NFFO is not a financial measure determined by IFRS, and is calculated by excluding from FFO the effects of certain non-recurring items, including changes in fair value of hedging instruments, amortization of losses on certain hedging instruments, and losses incurred on the amendment of natural gas contracts. NFFO, increased by 36.3% and 25.9% for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, respectively, compared to the same periods last year. The increase was primarily due to the contribution from acquisitions, and higher operating revenues, resulting from Management's sales and marketing programs. For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, basic NFFO per Unit increased by 8.0% compared to the same period last year despite the approximate 17% increase in the weighted average number of Units outstanding. For the three months ended September 30, 2012, basic NFFO per Unit increased by 12.1% compared to the same period last year due primarily to the strong increase in NFFO, despite the approximate 22% increase in the weighted average number of Units outstanding. Management expects FFO and NFFO per Unit, and the related payout ratios, to improve in the medium term as a result of the full NOI contribution from recent acquisitions. NFFO effective payout ratio for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 improved by 5.7% and 5.1%, respectively primarily due to higher NFFO during the current year and by higher participation in distributions reinvested. Management believes NFFO will be sufficient to fund CAPREIT's distributions on an annualized basis.LIQUIDITY AND LEVERAGEAs at September 30,20122011Total Debt to Gross Book Value50.97%55.35%Total Debt to Gross Historical Cost (1)59.94%62.22%Total Debt to Total Capitalization50.24%54.48%Debt Service Coverage Ratio (times) (2)1.491.36Interest Coverage Ratio (times) (2)2.462.17Weighted Average Mortgage Interest Rate (3)4.03%4.63%Weighted Average Mortgage Term to Maturity (years)5.35.5(1)Based on historical cost of investment properties.(2)Based on the trailing four quarters ended September 30, 2012.(3)Weighted average mortgage interest rate includes deferred financing costs and fair value adjustments on an effective interest basis. Including the amortization of the realized component of the loss on settlement of $24.0 million included in Accumulated Other Comprehensive Loss ("AOCL"), the effective portfolio weighted average interest rate at September 30, 2012 would be 4.19% (September 30, 2011 - 4.71%).Financial StrengthManagement believes CAPREIT's strong balance sheet and liquidity position will enable it to continue to take advantage of acquisition and property capital investment opportunities over the long term. CAPREIT is achieving its financing goals as demonstrated by the following key indicators:The ratio of total debt to gross book value as at September 30, 2012 improved to 50.97% compared to 55.35% for the same period last year;Debt service and interest coverage ratios for the four quarters ended September 30, 2012 improved to 1.49 times and 2.46 times compared to 1.36 times and 2.17 times, respectively, for the same period last year;At September 30, 2012, 93.1% (September 30, 2011 - 96.4%) of CAPREIT's mortgage portfolio was insured by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation ("CMHC"), excluding the mortgages on CAPREIT's manufactured home communities land lease sites, resulting in improved spreads on mortgages and overall lower interest costs than conventional mortgages. During the current year, on certain acquisitions CAPREIT has assumed conventional mortgages resulting in a decrease of CAPREIT's mortgage portfolio insured by CMHC compared to the same period last year. The effective portfolio weighted average interest rate on mortgages has steadily declined from 4.63% as at September 30, 2011, to 4.03% as at September 30, 2012, which will result in significant interest rate savings in future years;Closed or committed mortgage refinancings for $387.4 million, including $258.4 million for renewals of existing mortgages and $129 million for additional top up financing as at November 8, 2012 with a weighted average term to maturity of 8.9 years, and at a weighted average rate of 2.91%. Management expects to raise between $400 million and $425 million in total mortgage renewals and refinancings in 2012.CAPREIT renewed and amended it's Credit Facilities aggregating $420 million effective June 30, 2012, which comprise a revolving three-year Acquisition and Operating Facility, and a Bridge Loan, subject to compliance with the various provisions of the Credit Facilities in order to fund operations, acquisitions, capital improvements, letters of credit and other uses. On renewal, the Credit Facilities agreement was amended, to combine the Acquisition and Operating Facility and the Land Lease Facility into one credit facility for a total of $280 million. In addition, CAPREIT secured a Bridge Loan aggregating to $140 million in conjunction to renewing CAPREIT's existing Credit Facilities, in order to fund specific acquisitions. The Bridge Loan is a term credit and any principal amount under the facility that is repaid may not be re-borrowed. Its maturity date is a year from the initial drawdown of the advance, which was August 31, 2012. Property Capital Investment PlanDuring the nine months ended September 30, 2012 CAPREIT made property capital investments of $84.6 million as compared to $75.3 million for the same period last year. For the full 2012 year, CAPREIT expects to complete property capital investments of approximately $130 million to $140 million, including approximately $12.5 million in high efficiency boilers and other energy-saving initiatives. Property capital investments include suite improvements, common areas and equipment, which generally tend to increase NOI more quickly. CAPREIT continues to invest in energy-saving initiatives, including boilers, energy-efficient lighting systems, and water-saving programs, which permit CAPREIT to mitigate potentially higher increases in utility and R&M costs and significantly improve overall portfolio NOI.Subsequent Events On October 31, 2012, CAPREIT disposed of five apartment buildings containing 438 suites located in Mississauga, Oakville and Toronto, Ontario for a sale price of approximately $60.7 million. Mortgages of approximately $29.0 million were discharged and the balance applied to pay down the Bridge Loan.On November 1, 2012, CAPREIT completed the acquisition of the landmark Olympic Village property in Montréal, Québec, containing 980 residential suites and 237,000 square feet of commercial and retail space for a purchase price of approximately $176.5 million and the assumption of a first mortgage of approximately $82.0 million bearing a stated interest rate of 4.39% maturing in September 2013. The net acquisition amount will be funded from CAPREIT's Bridge Loan.Additional Information More detailed information and analysis is included in CAPREIT's unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements and MD&A for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, which have been filed on SEDAR and can be viewed at www.sedar.com under CAPREIT's profile or on CAPREIT's website on the investor relations page at www.capreit.net.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures CAPREIT prepares and releases unaudited quarterly 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 also discloses and discusses certain non-IFRS financial measures, including Net Rental Revenue Run-Rate, NOI, FFO, NFFO and applicable per Unit amounts and payout ratios. These non-IFRS measures are further defined and discussed in the MD&A released on November 8, 2012, which should be read in conjunction with this press release. Since Net Rental Revenue Run-Rate, NOI, FFO and NFFO are not determined by IFRS, they may not be comparable to similar measures reported by other issuers. CAPREIT has presented such non-IFRS measures as Management believes these non-IFRS measures are relevant measures of the ability of CAPREIT to earn and distribute cash returns to Unitholders and to evaluate CAPREIT's performance. A reconciliation of Net Income and such non-IFRS measures including Adjusted Funds From Operations ("AFFO") is included in this press release. These non-IFRS measures should not be construed as alternatives to net income (loss) or cash flow from operating activities determined in accordance with IFRS as an indicator of CAPREIT's performance.
