Sam Kolias, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Boardwalk REIT commented:

“Through the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the seasonally slower winter months, Boardwalk has continued to produce resilient operational results.  Boardwalk’s diverse product continues to provide housing for a broad range of Canadians and our focus on affordability across each of our three brands has allowed Boardwalk to continue to lead market share in our core markets.

Boardwalk always remains committed to providing safe and affordable homes to our Resident Members, and with a focus on retention, our Team continues to achieve sustainable incentive and discount reductions on renewals. The success of this approach is shown by our steady growth in our occupied rent and this has positioned us well to gain on occupancy in the new year.  As always, we will continue to work with any of our Resident Members who are experiencing financial hardship.

Our Team of Heroes has continued to deliver our essential service of housing through the current environment and are providing housing solutions for our current and prospective Resident Members through this second wave of the pandemic.  Thank you to our Team for adapting and accelerating the usage of our new Resident Member portal, developing new ways to show and lease suites through virtual showings, and for finding more efficient ways of delivering Boardwalk’s product quality, service, and experience while always maintaining our utmost safety standards.

I would like to thank our entire peak performance Team of Associates who continue to provide our essential service of safe and affordable housing.  We look forward to sharing full details of our fourth quarter financial results in February.”
