We continue to donate space for the storage and distribution of food bank items at no charge and have also offered other support. Hazelview Properties wants to help keep the food bank running! Read our full communication here!

Remember to wear a Mask!

Wearing your mask protects you and your neighbours. When you walk out of your door, your mask is as important as your wallet or keys! A reminder that mask-wearing is mandatory in West Lodge hallways, elevators, lobbies, laundry rooms and any other shared spaces inside the buildings. Thank you for your support! #covid-19
