Calgary-based real estate company requiring COVID-19 vaccination for employees and residents
Strategic Group commits to doing its part to end the pandemic

Strategic Group, a Calgary-based real estate company that owns multi-family residential communities in Alberta, now requires that all employees, residents, and prospective residents be vaccinated.

“Vaccination of everyone in our community is the only way we are going to get through this pandemic and back to a sense of normalcy,” said Riaz Mamdani, CEO of Strategic Group. “The safety of our team and our residents is a top priority, so ensuring full vaccination across the board is the least we can do.”

Any individual who wishes to tour a Strategic Group property must show proof of vaccination prior to a tour. All new residents must also show proof of vaccination prior to moving into their new home. Current residents must show proof of vaccination to access indoor amenities such a fitness centre or party room. Anyone unable to be vaccinated (i.e.: children under the age of 12) is exempt until able to receive a vaccine.

These rules apply to all of Strategic Group’s residential communities in Alberta which represent more than 1,500 one and two-bedroom suites in Edmonton and Calgary.

“Our residents are telling us that they value knowing that all their neighbours are vaccinated—they feel even safer in their own homes,” said Mr. Mamdani. “We have had no pushback from prospective residents when we ask for proof of vaccination prior to doing tours. Knowing they are walking into a community that cares about their health is feature for them.”

All Strategic Group employees and contractors are fully vaccinated.
