We're in this together

The safety of our community is our #1 priority

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 appropriate notices and communicate safety and risk mitigation practices.

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 and detailed cleaning regimen. Our on-site employees continue to use appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), such as gloves, according to existing policies and procedures.

We encourage you to continue to take appropriate measures to protect yourself including frequent handwashing, avoiding touching of the face, and to self exclude from meetings with others where you feel unwell.

Cleanliness in High Traffic Areas

We will continue to take a proactive approach to increasing sanitization in all high traffic and common touch areas of our properties.

Hand Sanitizer Dispensers

We have installed extra hand sanitizer stations throughout our buildings with an emphasis on common and high-use areas.

Safe reopening of Building Amenities

In response to the governments plan to gradually lift public health measures, we are pleased to announce that all amenity facilities across the country will be reopened with some restrictions.

We ask residents to respect capacity limits of building amenities, which may be less than provincial gathering limits. In some cases, residents may have to book a timeslot for certain high-use areas.

Visitors to our communities

We have posted signage at all entrances asking visitors to give thought to their need to enter the community if they have recently travelled to a COVID-19 high risk area; been in close contact with a confirmed or probable case of COVID-19; or who feel unwell in any way, Please note these are simply precautionary measures to ensure the continued comfort and safety of our residents, their visitors and our employees.

Maintenance in Your Home

We are making changes to the way we provide maintenance service in your suite. We take pride in taking care of your maintenance requests in a professional and timely manner and we want to uphold our diligent service throughout the pandemic. Before conducting maintenance in your home, we ask you to consider the following:

Have you recently travelled to a COVID-19 high risk area?

Have you been in close contact with a person who has recently travelled to a COVID-19 high risk area?

Have you recently been in close contact with a confirmed or probable case of COVID-19?

Do you feel unwell (cough, fever, difficulty breathing)?


If you answer YES to any of the points above, we will be taking extra steps to ensure that you and our team are protected.

This might require the attendance of an external contractor. In the case that special ordered parts are required to complete the repair, we will advise you of the expected time frame for completion of work.

We would like to advise residents that our maintenance request volume is currently higher than usual due to the number of residents staying at home. As a result our maintenance staff will be handling maintenance requests based on urgency. These decisions will be made on a discretionary basis.

Even as the pandemic subsides, we must all play our part and remain vigilant to ensure everyone's safety at our communities.
