Resident Rent Assistance Program

We know residents may face unexpected financial hardship and our professional Property Management partners are here to offer support. The Resident Rent Assistance Program (RRAP) offers different rent relief options based on residents’ needs. To date, we have successfully provided rental assistance to over 300 families. Any resident, regardless of employment or income status, can apply to the RRAP. Each application is reviewed on a confidential case-by-case basis by our Property Management partners.

Our Commitments to ESG

Our shared future.

Sustainability is at the forefront of our operations, with a strong focus on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) policy. In fact, our Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (“GRESB”) score was ranked first within our Residential Non-listed peer group.

Our sustainable operations preserve and protect our shared natural resources. We create inclusive communities in our neighbourhoods and in the workplace, and we are proactive in our transparency and accountability measures to ensure we mitigate future risks because the future belongs to all of us.
