Phase 1 | Phase 2

Thursday, March 07, 2013

Please be advised that after nearly 10 years of dedicated service, Gabriel has decided to take a position offered to him in a smaller yet new building, where his expertise with new condo's and Tarion is needed. Please be advised that, as of Friday March 8th 2013, Gabe will no longer be the official Superintendent of East Market.

Please be assured that all necessary security precautions have been taken to ensure the safety and confidentiality of all owners and the property of OCSCC 668 and OCSCC 676 (East Market). Gabe has been and will continue to be of some assistance to the new site superintendent during the switch-over. We hope for health and success in Gabe's future endeavors and ask that you join us in thanking him for the many hours and dedication he has provided to both Phase 1 and Phase 2.

Please also join us in welcoming to your Management Team, David Lalonde as your Condominium Building Superintendent. David joins your Management Team with previous professional experience in building management and has been assisting here at East Market over the last number of months. David, has had the opportunity to run a successful Orleans based company for the past 20 years. David’s general understanding in building systems, along with his shared focus on client relations will complement the focus of your team, your Board of Directors and our dedication to The East Market.

Please be reminded that it will take some time for David to become familiar with The East Market. Under the advice of the Corporation’s Auditor David will be an employee of the Corporation and not a Contractor as the previous Superintendent. It is very important that you make your requests, other than name changes or booking of the party room with your Property Administrator which will allow a work order system to be fully implemented.

All after hour calls must be emergencies ONLY and must be placed with the CMG emergency on call Manager at 613-762-5704. You can reach David by calling 613-238-4808 during 8:00 and 4:00 pm.

Thank you for your support and welcoming David to East Market and wishing Gabe the very best.

East Market Owner's Group meeting

Phase 1 | Phase 2

Thursday, January 10, 2013

The next meeting of the East Market Owner’s Group (EMOG) will be held on: Tuesday, January 15, 2013 at 7pm in the Party Room in Phase 2. 


The agenda will include election of a Vice-Chaiperson and a discussion of owners’ ideas about enhancing the community living experience in East Market.  Proposals for projects will then be provided to the Boards for approval.


A summary of the business conducted at the November 6, 2012 follows:


  •  Interim Chairperson, Tim Anderson, welcomed the six attendees, including three new members.
  • Review/discussion of the Joint Boards’ Resolution concerning the mandate of the OG. The group noted that the EM community has already benefitted from the initiatives of the EMOG, e.g., landscaping improvements and other common area issues. 
  • The OG endorsed Eve Anders, PH2, as Chair. Eve will assume her duties early in the New Year; the interim Chair will remain in place until that time. 
  • Discussion of possible initiatives for the holiday season. Agreed not to undertake social activities this year, as early in EM history, attendance did not justify the effort. Owners agreed to approach the Boards regarding possible lobby decorations. (PS: as a result of volunteer effort, a wreath was placed in the Phase 2 lobby). 
  • Agreement that meetings of the EMOG would be held every two (2) months and that notice would be given a few weeks prior.
