Winnipeg landlord bans smoking in rental apartments
As of October 1, 2006, tenants in Winnipeg, Manitoba are literally out on the street - to smoke. Globe General Agencies, the largest landlord in the prarie city of Manitoba, has banned smoking for all new tenants in their apartments and on balconies.
"Really this is just all part of providing a safe and healthy environment for our tenants," said Globe President, Richard Morantz. The new rules were designed for health benefits, to cut maintenance costs, and eventually reduce apartment insurance costs.
The new rules do not affect current tenants who will be allowed to continue smoking in their apartments for the length of tenancy
Globe said the policy could spread to apartment buildings it manages in other Canadian cities. Globe manages 5,000 apartment rentals in 60 buildings in Winnipeg, and has apartments buildings in Edmonton, Saskatoon and Montreal.
