Summary

Since declaring a state of emergency in March, the Province of Ontario has ordered mandatory shutdowns of physical locations for non-essential businesses.  While social isolation policies are necessary, these sudden public health measures have created a sense of uncertainty within the business community.

Apart from big-box retail chains, many small and medium sized businesses like restaurants, gyms, personal health service providers and service-sector office spaces have been forced to shut down.  With an understanding of how landlords and tenants can potentially work together during these coming months, our aim is to provide both sides of the commercial lease with information to hopefully cooperate and move towards surviving the COVID crisis.

If you’re a tenant or landlord of a commercial space, this webinar will provide you with some useful information on the following:

  • The current laws regarding commercial leases.
  • Seeking alternative arrangements via rent deferrals or abatements.
  • Creating an action plan for lease extensions and renewals.
  • Brainstorming innovative methods to weather the storm and preserve landlord-tenant relationships.

This webinar is open to all to attend and will cover topics relevant to both commercial tenants and landlords.  We invite participants to send us questions ahead of time so that we can add to the material for a more thorough discussion on commercial leasing.
