Hazelview Properties is among several rental housing providers that have banded together to support displaced Ukrainians since the war began in March 2022. To date, collective efforts by Boardwalk REIT, CAPREIT, Hazelview Properties, Homestead, InterRent REIT, Minto Apartment REIT, and Starlight Investments have helped hundreds of families impacted by the ongoing humanitarian crisis.
For its part, Hazelview has provided more than 50 suites from Halifax to Winnipeg via the company’s housing support program. Additionally, team members have been stepping up to help newcomers in other ways, including collecting, storing and delivering donated items, making financial contributions, and assisting with employment searches.
“My husband and I just wanted to say thank you for your help in finding a place to live,” said Kseniya, who arrived with her family in early April and has been living in a Hazelview apartment. “We love it a lot and are so happy that we were able to find such good people as you are.”
To ensure the Ukrainian families continue to get the essential supplies they need, such as strollers, diapers, furniture and appliances, Hazelview recently launched a fundraiser using the GoFundMe platform. Those who donate are automatically entered into a raffle to win an original painting from Toronto artist Ric Santon.
“I think this project and movement is amazing,“ said Diana Swift, a property manager with Hazelview Properties who’s helped with ongoing efforts. “It is another reason why I am so proud to be part of the Hazelview family.”
“I am incredibly proud of the Hazelview team for coming together to support this program and the Ukrainians who have been hit the hardest by this conflict,” added David Melo, Managing Partner & President of Hazelview Properties. “We remain committed to supporting displaced Ukrainians arriving in Canada for as long as they require it.”
