Item status

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. 


Outstanding/Incomplete Requests

Despite prodding CAPREIT, the progress is exceptionally slow on these items.

Completed 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).
