At our April 19th LTTA meeting the following tenants kindly offered to help out when we are trying to connect with our Arabic only speaking neighbours.

Nabil El AL – 647-719-7878

Husam Hussein – 647- 997-7782

Naglaa Soliman – 416-522-6644 (available until May 16 only)

We don’t want to take advantage of these individuals’ generosity.
For major concerns related to a specific unit etc. please direct them to go to the office rather than calling the people named above. The office will make the necessary contacts.

Where the family needs help with everyday activities or issues (for example: Where is the library, banking information etc.) please call Nabil or Hasam who will provide the needed translation.

Other resources:

The Tenants Guide has been translated into Arabic and each Syrian newcomer has been provided with a copy. If they have their orientation package handy, we could direct them to that guide for information about Leaside Towers services and facilities.

Sheren Habib, the Pharmacist at Pharmasave (RBC building) has also offered his transation services. He can be reached most work days between 9:30am and 6pm Monday – Friday at 416-421-9359 .

Thanks to all of you for attending our meeting last week.

The LTTA Steering Committee has proposed that general meetings be held on a quarterly basis rather than monthly.  The Steering Committee will continue to meet monthly to review ongoing issues and projects.  Please use the contact form to contact the Steering Committee with their concerns and suggestions.  The LTTA invites tenants to join the Steering Committee which welcomes fresh faces and input.

The next meeting will be held Tuesday December 12th.

You can find the detailed minutes here.

We have received kitchen bins from the City of Toronto, for you to collect food waste. This is part of our new program to increase organic and garbage recycling in #85 and #95.

Please come to the Management Office during regular office hours, to pick up your bin.

Hurry, because the supply is limited.

We also have Organic Waste collection instructions available in Chinese and Arabic. Just ask for a sheet when you pick up your bin. Information in English has already been distributed in your mailboxes.

Bags to collect recycling waste will be available at a later date. Stay tuned for an announcement.

Thank-you for your co-operation in helping Leaside Towers to

Reduce! Re-use! Recycle!

(A reminder that the two large metal Green Bins to collect your kitchen waste are located behind #85 on the B1 level)
