The global COVID-19 pandemic is having far-reaching effects in Toronto, including major impacts to what have been booming real estate and building industries. Many jobs and most events are currently suspended, postponed, or affected in other ways, though UrbanToronto is still operating at full strength with our team working remotely. As a means to keep the public in the loop about the shutdowns, we'll be sharing information and status updates from around the industry on a regular basis.

In today's report: Is Toronto real estate in store for a condo buyer’s market, City of Toronto to address financial impacts of COVID-19, Kitchener GO corridor virtual open house sessions as social distancing continues, and more news from the COVID-19 front.
