ROI Land Investments LTD: ROI Land Investments to Develop Housing Units for LNG Canada

ROI to Construct Apartments and Townhouses near Proposed LNG Facility in
British Columbia

Quebec city, Quebec, MAY 27th, 2015 -- ROI Land Investments Ltd. (OTCQB: ROII)
("ROI" or the "Company"), a diversified real estate land development
investment company, and LNG Canada Development Inc. ("LNG Canada"), have
entered into an agreement for ROI to develop housing in Kitimat, British
Columbia. Of the 93 units being developed, LNG Canada will lease 35 units,
which include a mix of apartments and townhouses, to house some of its
employees required to support the proposed liquefied natural gas project.

"We are excited to partner with LNG Canada as it seeks to bring the liquefied
natural gas industry and its economic benefits to the people and communities
of the North Coast of British Columbia," said Philippe Germain, President of
ROI. "Our housing development project will not only support LNG Canada, but
also help meet the growing demand for quality housing in the region."

"We heard very clearly from the local community how important it is that LNG
Canada considers potential impacts to housing availability as a result of our
proposed project," said Andy Calitz, CEO of LNG Canada. "Our partnership with
ROI allows LNG Canada to secure much needed housing for employees, and
reflects our commitment to listen to, and act on feedback from our
stakeholders, when possible."

The five-year agreement calls for ROI to construct housing for some of LNG
Canada's employees in a phased approach. LNG Canada has committed to the
five-year lease, regardless of a positive financial investment decision by
the joint venture participants behind the proposed project. In the first
phase of the housing project, ROI is expected to build 35 apartments and nine
townhouses in Kitimat, and is projected to be completed by May 31, 2016. As
part of the agreement with LNG Canada, ROI will seek to hire local people and
businesses, provided the candidates are competitive and meet operational and
safety requirements.

If the LNG Canada project moves forward, it will bolster the economy in
British Columbia. Estimates call for the LNG Canada project to employ an
average of 4,500 people during the first phase of construction, with a
potential peak workforce of 7,500 people. It is expected that 300 to 400
people would be employed during first-phase operations, increasing to between
450 and 800 should the full project (four trains) be built. Local businesses
are also expected to benefit from the project.
