How to Submit Maintenance Requests

There are several ways to submit maintenance requests.

Submit a Maintenance Request using the Leaside Towers Resident Portal. If this is your first time using the Portal, you will need to register using your email address.


Complete a maintenance request form available from the Management Office. If your request is urgent, such as a water leak, consult with the management office staff at 416-421-8109 between 8:00 and 4:00pm Monday through Friday.

Should you have an emergency after Management Office hours, please contact your Building Superintendent. Their working hours are 8:00am to 5:00pm and only emergency issues will be dealt with after these hours.  Should you be unable to reach your Superintendent to report a major emergency e.g. Flood, Fire or Death, please call the Answering Service at (416) 207-8253. Give them your building number, apartment number and inform them of the issue.
