NOTICE TO ALL RESIDENTS

COVID-19 (Update #9a)

Park Property Management Inc. continues to monitor the current situation and update our tenants as new developments occur.  As the Province announces measures to open the economy we will provide you with updates and guidelines as they unfold.

We want to thank all those tenants who have paid their May rent or have reached out to us to arrange for payment plans.  We remind residents in need to contact the management office for assistance.

We continue with enhanced cleaning protocols by our building staff who are working very diligently to keep our buildings clean.  Please do your part by putting your used gloves and masks in appropriate waste receptacles or taking them home with you.  We also ask you to read Update #9b as we are finding that we are reacting to many plumbing calls.

Please also be considerate when using the elevators.  If you can't maintain physical distancing with others already on the elevator, please wait for the next elevator.  As we start moving toward a "new normal" elevator use will increase and patience in relation to distancing will be difficult but necessary.

Our thanks to everyone.  We will get through this by remembering to be kind and considerate to all.

COVID-19 (Update #9b)

Please do not dispose of any kind of wipes in your toilet!  This includes disinfectant wipes, baby wipes and personal care wipes.  They may say they are flushable, but they are not!

Buildups of these wipes clog the building pipes and the city sewer systems.  They do not biodegrade very quickly and they eventually get stuck somewhere.  Please dispose of these in the garbage!

Thank you.

COVID-19 (Update #8)

With May 1st upon us, we ask that you pay your May rent if at all possible, and will assist you in developing a repayment plan with us if you can't.  It is our intention to support our tenants wherever and however we can.

To reduce risk to residents, non-essential visitors such as friends and family who do not live with you are strongly discouraged from entering the building.  This policy is consistent with Health Canada physical distancing practices. Physical distancing is proven to be one of the most effective ways to reduce the spread of illness during an outbreak. This means making changes in your everyday routines to minimize close contact with others. Essential services workers, such as a PSW, are permitted to enter your apartment home.

Please do not loiter and interact with others in the building lobby, hallways, laundry rooms or any other common area that is used by residents and remain in your apartment as much as possible except when entering or exiting the building, and comply with posted directions relative to use of laundry facilities and elevators.

Finally, our building staff are concerned with being safe while they clean and maintain the building. Please respect them at all times and keep two metres away. If you need assistance, call or email your building superintendent instead.

Thank you to all for being kind and considerate as we continue to work through these difficult times.

Thank you.

COVID-19 (Update #7)

Park Property Management Inc. continues to monitor the current situation and update our tenants as new developments occur. 

We want to thank all those tenants who have paid their April rent or have reached out to us to arrange for payment plans.  The Canadian Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) of $2,000 per month has been enhanced so that more people can qualify.   The eligibility requirements can be seen here:

We continue with enhanced cleaning protocols by our building staff who are working very diligently to keep our buildings clean.  Please do your part by putting your used gloves and masks in appropriate waste receptacles or taking them home with you.

Please also be considerate when using the elevators.  If you can't maintain physical distancing with others already on the elevator, please wait for the next elevator.

COVID-19 (Update #5)

Park Property Management Inc. continues to monitor the current situation and update our tenants as new developments occur.  The provincial government has declared a state of emergency, which stresses the importance of taking every precaution – please stay home, stay safe, and only venture out to buy essential supplies when necessary. 

We are following the lead of the City of Toronto and the Province of Ontario in closing all of our playgrounds for the foreseeable future.  Please do not climb over the locked gates or tear down the caution tape.  It is for all of our protection that people not use our playgrounds.

Please be considerate and not drop your gloves and masks on the floor or grounds of any of our buildings.  It is our staff that have to pick them up, exposing themselves to possible danger.  Please dispose of them in a proper waste receptacle or take them home to be disposed of there. Please keep this in mind as well at local grocery stores.

Also be aware that there are many scams occurring online and by phone.  Do not give your personal information and/or credit card information to anyone you do not know and who has contacted you out of the blue.  We are aware of a particular scam where calls offering grocery delivery are made to tenants who are then asked for their credit card details.  Please be very careful in these uncertain times.

Thank you.

PARK PROPERTY & TENANTS WORK TOGETHER
TO FLATTEN THE CURVE

 

It is imperative that everyone STAY HOME and only venture out for essential supplies (groceries and medications) or deliver the same to those who cannot do it for themselves. This means keeping gatherings to five people or less (along with keeping a physical distance of more than two metres). You should strive to stay in your own "bubble" and not visit with anyone from outside your bubble.

 

If you have recently returned from overseas, you are required by law to self-quarantine for 14 days. This includes not leaving your unit for ANY reason (ie, walking your dog, getting groceries). Please reach out to building staff by phone or email if you require help while you are in quarantine, and we'll see how we can help or visit 211oncovid19.ca

 

Please also adhere to a limit of three people per elevator. Everyone needs to adhere to these standards to stop the spread of COVID-19.

 

Thank you.

COVID-19 (UPDATE #4)

Park Property Management Inc. continues to monitor the current situation and update our tenants as new developments occur. The provincial government has declared a state of emergency, which stresses the importance of taking every precaution – please stay home, stay safe, and only venture out to buy essential supplies when necessary.

Building staff have been working tirelessly to clean and disinfect in our efforts to keep you and the broader community healthy. To practise physical distancing, they are often working at odd hours, when the likelihood of encountering residents is minimal. Additional hand sanitizers have been delivered to all of our buildings and will be installed in the next couple of days on all floors.

As per the direction from both the provincial and municipal governments, those who are able to pay their rent must do so. However, if you are having financial difficulty due to job loss, etc., please let us know your situation and we can work together to develop a plan to meet your rental obligations to ensure your housing is secure. Applications for repayment arrangements can be obtained from your superintendent's office, your management office, or at our website. Please complete and return in a sealed envelope, into the drop box in your building, with a copy of either your Record of Employment, a termination letter from your employment, or proof of application for Employment Insurance, and we will be in touch. For further information about the repayment program, please contact Anita Sada at 905-940-1718 x2567 or asada@parkprop.com.

Our Federal governments recently introduced financial assistance measures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please review the various programs available being offered at Canada.ca. We will post further links on our website.

We thank everyone for their patience, understanding and cooperation as we work safely through this together. These are trying times, and with announcements changing the climate on a daily (sometimes hourly!) basis, we're learning as we go. Please stay safe and continue to be kind and respectful.


IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR TENANTS SEEKING INCOME SUPPORTS

For those in Toronto 211toronto.ca is a helpful resource with links to social support services provided for Toronto citizens.

The federal Parliament passed C-13, the COVID-19 Emergency Response Act, to accomplish what is suggested in the bill's title. Most impactful among the measures is a new Canada Emergency Response Benefit, which will provide $2,000 a month for up to 4 months to:

* workers who must stop working due to COVID-19 and do not have access to paid leave or other income support.
* workers who are sick, quarantined, or taking care of someone who is sick with COVID-19.
* working parents who must stay home without pay to care for children that are sick or need additional care because of school and daycare closures.
* workers who still have their employment but are not being paid because there is currently not sufficient work and their employer has asked them not to come to work.
* wage earners and self-employed individuals, including contract workers, who would not otherwise be eligible for Employment Insurance.

Canadians can make application through a secure web portal set to launch in early April, with benefits received within 10 days of application submission. Approximately 1,300 federal employees have been re-purposed for application processing. You can view the full federal response by clicking here

Yesterday afternoon, the Province released Ontario's Action Plan: Responding to COVID-19 , a $17 billion plan to enhance the capacity of our healthcare system as well as financial supports for people and businesses. These measures were intended to complement and fill the gap associated with the Government of Canada's measures announced on March 18th.

Ontario took the approach to provide direct financial support to individuals in the form of grants and reliefs to allow for more cash in the hands of people to pay for necessities such as food and rent. For businesses, the government is taking an approach to allow more short-term cash in the hands of businesses by focusing on deferring taxes and other payments.

Key measures targeted towards individuals include:

Doubling the Guaranteed Annual Income System (GAINS)  maximum payment for low-income seniors to $166 per month for individuals and $332 per month for couples for six months;
* Payments to families with children of $200 per child up to 12 years of age and $250 for those with special needs;
* Six months of relief from loan payments and interest accrual for students under the Ontario Student Assistance Program;
* Relief from energy bills including:

- Setting electricity prices for time-of-use customers at the lowest rate (off-peak price) for 24 hours a day for a period of 45 days

- $9 million to expand the eligibility for the Low‑income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP); and

* $200 million in new funding to provide temporary emergency supports for people in financial need as well as funding to municipalities and other service providers so they can quickly respond to local needs.

Key measures targeted towards businesses include:

* Five months of relief from interest and penalties associated with payments for the majority of provincially administered taxes;
* Six months of relief from Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) payments by allowing deferrals;
* Deferring municipal remittance of education property tax for the upcoming quarter to school boards by 90 days. This will provide municipalities with the flexibility to provide property tax deferrals for businesses and residents;
* A temporary increase to the Employer Health Tax (EHT) exemption; and
* Setting electricity prices for time-of-use customers the lowest rate (off-peak price) for 24 hours a day for a period of 45 days.

COVID-19 (UPDATE #3)

Park Property Management Inc., its staff and tenants form a large community, with all of us pulling together as we are faced with a very challenging environment. Our building staff are working very hard to maintain the cleanliness of our public spaces and we thank our residents for supporting them in this very stressful time. We thank our front-line staff for keeping everyone safe.

As all of us have heard on the news, it's really important that we practice social distancing, but the newer term is "physical distancing" – we need to stay physically separate from each other (two metres); however, it's really important that we stay in touch with our friends, family and neighbours – now more than ever. Perhaps they need some grocery items, or picking up a prescription from a pharmacy, and are unable to do so themselves. Now is the time for all of us to be kind to one another and help each other whenever we can.

It's also important that we get our information from reliable sources. Here's a list of websites that will provide important information.
