TORONTO, May 5th, 2021 – Greenrock was announced as the winner of the 2021 CFAA Rental Housing Provider of the Year Award for its remarkable and multi-faceted approach to supporting residents and community members during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Greenrock won the award within the under 15,000 units category, alongside Drewlo Lifestyle Apartments. The announcement was made at the sixth annual Canadian Federation of Apartment Associations’ Rental Housing Awards program, which was broadcasted virtually on Tuesday, May 4th, 2021.
“It’s an incredible honour for Greenrock to be recognized as the CFAA Rental Housing Provider of the Year. Our team thanks everyone who made this award possible, including our valued residents for continuing to make Greenrock their home during the pandemic,” says Barry Green, CEO of Greenrock.
Greenrock owns and manages two prominent residential communities in the heart of Toronto, including Davisville Village just steps from Davisville Station and Village Green near Church and Wellesley. Greenrock created a unique COVID-19 Relief Fund at the start of the pandemic, which has since grown to $3.5 million and includes the following support measures:
- Donations to over 40 Canadian charities addressing food security, mental health, BIPOC communities, LGBTQ2S communities, senior care, shelters and outreach support, and women’s health
- All Greenrock-managed suites each received a total of $600 in grocery gift cards to help with household expenses between April and December 2020
- A last month’s rent program whereby residents can use their last month’s rent as a credit towards upcoming rent payments
- Significant discounts and interest-free payment plans for residents who are experiencing financial challenges and have outstanding arrears
Greenrock continues to show compassion towards those living within its buildings and takes a supportive approach by offering the above measures and working with residents individually to address financial challenges.
In response to the third wave of the virus, Greenrock’s charitable arm, Greenrock IMPACT, is in the process of researching and carefully vetting charities that are slated to receive the remaining $1 Million of funding. The next wave of donations will be announced in the coming weeks.
