We met with our paralegal and Shiplake today at the Landlord Tenant Board to challenge the 3% AGI, Above Guideline Increase. We were able to negotiate with Shiplake and lower the AGI to 2.6%.

Within the next two weeks or so anyone effected by the AGI will receive a legal notification letting them know the updated amount for their rent. You will have 60 days to pay the difference should you owe the diffrence and Shiplake will have 60 days to refund you if you have been paying the additional 3%.

I would like to thank the tenants that came with us to show their support. We could not have done this without you.

On Saturday September 12 & Sunday September 13, 2015 we had the first annual building wide Flea Market and Bake Sale. Even though mother nature was not very accommodating we had a great turnout and tenets were able to sell some of their “extra” stuff. The Bake Sale was a huge success and very tasty. The raffle was also a success with the opportunity to win quite a few prizes from our local business’s. We managed to raise over $ 800.00 to help the Tenant Association with the upcoming legal fees. Thanks you to everyone who participated, baked and volunteered. We could not have had the success we had without you.

Thank You to the following sponsors and donors for your support.

The Duke of Kent, The Fox, A Firkin Pub, Starbucks, Second Cup, Central Eglinton Community Centre and Periwinkle Flowers
