New Member Letter

Dear New FRPO Member:

It is my pleasure to welcome you as a member of the Federation of Rental-housing Providers of Ontario.  You have made a wise choice to become part of a network of industry professionals who share your vision of growing your business and continuing to strengthen our industry brand and values.

As an organization, FRPO is dedicated to advancing the goals of the industry through advocacy, membership services, and a commitment to quality assurance programs.  Our focus is on advancing initiatives that will help to improve the business climate in Ontario for rental housing to help strengthen your bottom line, and promote growth across the industry.

We are proud of our efforts to date that has contributed to making the rental housing industry responsible for supporting over 162,000 jobs in the province, and generating over $23 billion in gross domestic product annually.  The industry’s commitment to the future is reflected in the significant capital investment of more than $7 billion every year, which is more than the Ontario government invests annually in provincial highways and GO Transit combined.

FRPO’s constructive relationship with the Ontario government has allowed us to present fresh alternatives to past policy decisions that will provide new opportunities for growth and reducing operating costs, which improves outcomes for our members, for tenants, and the province as a whole.  You can read more about our latest successes in the Advocacy section on our website at www.frpo.org.

Our membership services team delivers a variety of training solutions, events, and support resources that respond to a wide range of member needs.  We would encourage you to review the materials in your new membership package, and to watch for upcoming opportunities which are detailed in our member bulletins and web site updates.

We are proud to have you as a member of our association, and my team and I look forward to working with you in the years ahead.  Please do not hesitate to contact us and let us know how we can be of assistance.

Sincerely,

Scott Andison President & CEO
