Crombie’s Commitment to Healthy & Safe Communities

At Crombie we are committed to the health and safety of our employees, tenants, and communities. Since mid-March, people across Canada have been working hard to slow the spread of COVID-19. Crombie’s team is no exception – our office employees quickly made the move to working from home, while our on-site property teams ensured our properties remained operational, clean and safe. Our business continues to operate efficiently and effectively, thanks to the resilience and determination of our teams across the country. We are grateful, and are committed to ensuring our employees and their families do not suffer financially because of this temporary new reality.

To Our Tenants

Many of our tenants are businesses that have remained open, ensuring that the essential goods and services our communities rely on are accessible in this time of need. Some of our tenants, though, have had to close temporarily or significantly alter how you operate, and this has been a very difficult time for you. We understand and are committed to helping you through two rent support programs: CECRA (Canada Emergency Commercial Rent Assistance) and CVSB (Crombie Values Small Business). Please connect with us (cvsb@crombie.ca) for more information and to apply for this support.

We have been sharing updates with our tenants on a weekly basis and will continue to do so. Part of maintaining open lines of communication includes establishing clear expectations around sharing known presumptive or confirmed cases with us, so we can ensure we take the necessary steps to inform and protect all tenants, our employees, and service providers.

To Our Communities

Our regular cleaning activities continue to be of utmost importance as a protective measure against the virus, at all of our properties. Health authorities have advised that regular cleaning practices should be increased, and we have done so by increasing the frequency of our cleaning efforts and ensuring a focus on touch points. Hand sanitizer dispensers are available in all common areas, and we have confirmed that this product is effective when used correctly.

As economies across the country begin to slowly reopen, we are taking the steps necessary to enable us to welcome customers to our sites in the safest manner possible. This includes collaborating with our tenants on best practices and ensuring that everyone understands and follows federal and provincial guidelines. We have taken a number of steps to protect the safety of our tenants, customers, and visitors. A summary of our efforts is outlined here.

What's New at Crombie

Crombie believes that the world would be a better place if everyone felt a sense of belonging to their community. 

This belief commits Crombie to invest in and build welcoming, convenient and long-term real estate properties where people live, work, shop and play. It is these very spaces that encourage and enhance human connections. In the online world, Crombie maintains an active Intranet site to create a closer sense of community throughout the company. We share stories of local community involvement activities, employee achievements, and property celebrations, so all employees, from coast to coast, are up-to-date on what's happening at Crombie. 

Here are a few of those stories:
