As we are living in unprecedented times, we thought it important to reach out and thank you, our residents, for your continued understanding and calm during this time.
At this moment, more of our residents are at home than ever before. And we can assure you that as your property managers, we are meeting continually across each day to ensure your safety and comfort.
It is at times like these when we consider our brand tenets – customer service, cleanliness, convenience and community. It is this last tenet – community – that we need to focus on right now.
We are all in this together and as we head into uncharted territory let’s remind ourselves of the need for patience and compassion with one another. One of the most important things we can do is to keep you informed of what we are doing, and you have our commitment that we will do that. You have already expressed that you appreciate the way we are keeping you informed, and we will continue to keep you updated as things develop and change.
At a high level, our goal right now is to direct our resources to keeping the most used common areas clean and sanitized. Our front-line staff continue to be dedicated towards their efforts to ensure the safety of everyone, and we appreciate the words of gratitude you have already shared with us about their work during this time.
Once again, thank you for your support and understanding during this challenging time.

Information and updates on COVID-19 are changing rapidly. To stay informed, please consult one of the following government websites for up-to-date information:
What are we doing to keep our residents and our team safe?
In the event that GWL Realty Advisors Residential is advised that a building resident, visitor or on-site employee has either been infected, or is under investigation for possible infection with COVID-19, we will post notices in the building advising as such.
Should an advisory be posted, it is being provided as a precautionary measure intended to protect the comfort and safety of our residents, visitors and employees, and to allows individuals to make informed decisions about the risk of potential COVID-19 transmission.
All common areas (e.g. elevator call buttons, handrails, door handles, and other touch surfaces) are regularly disinfected and Property Management continues with its increased cleaning of these areas. Our on-site employees continue to use appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), such as gloves, according to existing policies and procedures, as well as following label directions for all cleaning products.
We encourage you to continue to take appropriate measures to protect yourself including handwashing protocols, avoiding touching of the face and to self exclude from meetings with others where you feel unwell.
What can residents do to help stop the spread in the community and keep their families and our community safe?
Remain at home if you are sick and avoid close contact with anyone in the common areas of the community.Seek medical advice should you exhibit any symptoms of COVID-19 after having traveled to a risk zone, or if you come in contact with others who have traveled to any of those zones.It is crucial that individuals follow quarantine and self-isolation recommendations properly to prevent transmission of COVID-19 to others in a community.
Social distancing measures are approaches taken to minimize close contact with others in the community. If you are using the laundry facilities, taking the elevator, walking through the lobby or any other common area of the building, please make a conscious effort to use social distancing and limit contact with fellow residents, staff or anyone in your vicinity to a recommended 6 foot distance in an effort to keep everyone safe. Social distancing can never prevent 100% of transmissions, but by following these simple rules, we can all play a critical role in slowing the spread of this virus. Plan ahead by maintaining a supply of essential medications, home supplies and extra non-perishable food in the event you require voluntary quarantine or self-isolation.
The best way to protect yourself:
Wash your hands often and thoroughly – with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use an alcohol-based sanitizer if soap and water are not available.Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.Clean high-touch surfaces ie. toys, toilets, phones, electronics, door handles, bedside tables, television remotes, etc. frequently with regular household cleaners or diluted bleach (1 part bleach to 9 parts water).
Prevent the spread
Protect against viruses by following these hygiene habits
