This page keeps track of the items we have requested from CAPREIT.
We request things from CAPREIT that we know you want and that will make the building a better place to live. We have made these requests in quarterly meetings (until covid happened), and also in emails. Lately all requests are by email.
In some cases things are agreed to but they never seem to happen. In other cases requests are turned down. In some cases the requests are completed.
Despite prodding CAPREIT, the progress is exceptionally slow on these items.

Two items have been completed in the table below. The curb cut at the front door has been installed. It took two attempts to get the work done properly. This took over 720 days. The GEUCR bin was removed on December 5, or 272 days after it’s removal was agreed (March 8 2019).
|New curb cut||Curb cut near portico/front door. Necessary for people with mobility issues.||September 2018 meeting||Completed Nov 6 2019||Initial attempt was completed 427 days after agreed. However, it was unsatisfactory (it created a small trench - a tripping hazard). It was finally completed properly on August 26 2020. This took 721 days from the day it was agreed.|
|Clothing bin removal||Clothing bin will be removed (GEUCR is not a CRA registered charity). This is a result of the petition presented to CAPREIT.||March 8 2019 email||Completed December 5 2019||This item took 272 days to complete.|
