The Institute of Housing Management (IHM) is continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation and in our efforts to ensure the health and safety of our learning community, we are making decisions based on the advice provided by the public health professionals. The Province of Ontario has enacted a declaration of emergency to help contain the spread of COVID-19 and protect the public.
At this time, in our efforts to support social distancing, all IHM 5-day classes including the May 11 – 15, 2020 – Strategic & Financial Planning for Property Managers course, are being rescheduled to a future date. Please be sure to monitor the IHM website for all upcoming 2020 education events.
For those persons who wish to continue their learning at this time, the IHM program is provided through various educational opportunities. The IHM Distance Learning program is ongoing and the three partnering colleges (Humber College, Conestoga College, and George Brown College) are providing on-line and virtual classroom courses for the spring semester.
The IHM would like to express its sincere appreciation to the many property management professionals who are continuing to work throughout this world-wide pandemic, in their efforts to provide a safe and comfortable home to the residents they serve. We know and admire the many suppliers, contractors, and trades who are continuing to provide services under extreme circumstances. It is times like this, that IHM is extremely proud of those working and serving the housing profession. We express a sincere thank you to the current IHM membership and the thousands of current and past students who continue to adapt to a changing environment each day.
Please remember that during this world pandemic we should be implementing frequent handwashing, wearing personal protective equipment when necessary, avoid touching our eyes, nose, and mouth, limiting our interaction with others and ensuring a six-foot social distance to other people, and continuing to shelter in place when possible.
Be healthy and be safe.
