As affordable living continues to be a nation-wide challenge in Canada, Vida Living is doubling down to support Canada’s workforce tenants in new, creative ways. Based in Halifax, NS they have made their first purchase in Winnipeg in the Daniel McIntyre Ward, a 32-unit apartment complex at 677 Maryland St and have their eye on another 150 units in the area to purchase in the next 12 months.
In the mission to help Canadians save for their future, Vida Living provides budget-friendly living where people enjoy renting with a community focused model.
Vida is now rewarding tenants with incentives like:
In addition, Vida provides flexible leasing terms which allow tenants to break their leases in situations like:
Vida is also offering top local employers a rental discount for their staff to live at Vida Living. Vida taps into local businesses and community partners including services like veterinary clinics, restaurants, grocery and retail shops to offer discounts to tenants to further help them save for their future.
One of our key pillars is community and tenants are encouraged to enhance their community through functions like small maintenance and repairs, painting, managing the building, joining community events
“You have to treat people well if you want to build a community,” said Vida CEO Ron Lovett. “We serve workforce housing and our tenants are hard workers. We want to help them level-up and that in turn helps our greater community and economy. We view our tenants as customers, not tenants, and constantly seek to add value to their lives. I am very excited to do the same in Winnipeg.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IP-2ig4HUso
