Rent Relief REMS SC1536x1040

The spread of COVID-19 has created extraordinary economic and market conditions.

To help our clients navigate this uncertainty, Colliers Real Estate Management Services (REMS) undertook a national assessment of all the tenants in our managed portfolio of over 67 million square feet across Canada. We surveyed 7,100 tenants across every province except Prince Edward Island, with a makeup of 19% retail tenants, 27% industrial tenants, and 54% office tenants.

This risk assessment is continuing and we will release ongoing reports that will analyze how COVID-19 is impacting tenants and overall portfolio risk as the pandemic continues to affect businesses across Canada. This report examines the key drivers behind rent relief requests for April 2020.
