Crombie’s Commitment to Healthy & Safe Communities

The health and safety of our employees, tenants, and communities is Crombie’s top priority. Since March of 2020, our team has adapted to working from home and shifted priorities to ensure our properties remain 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 remained open throughout COVID-19, moving quickly to adapt their policies and operations to ensure the essential goods and services our communities rely on remained accessible. Some of our tenants had to close temporarily, or significantly alter how they operate, and have faced many difficult challenges. We are proud to have helped support them through our own rent support program, CVSB (Crombie Values Small Business), as well as CECRA (Canada Emergency Commercial Rent Assistance) . Please connect with us (cvsb@crombie.ca) for information on those programs.

We have focused on maintaining open lines of communication, which 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

At the onset of the pandemic, health authorities advised that regular cleaning practices should be increased, and we did so by increasing the frequency of our cleaning efforts and ensuring a focus on touch points. Hand sanitizer dispensers were made available in all common areas of our properties, and at our larger centers we installed hand-washing stations. Signage to manage capacities and flow of direction were deployed across the country. Our enhanced cleaning activities continue to be of utmost importance as a protective measure against the virus.

As economies across the country are in varying states of operation, 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:
