Tenant's Attestation Final
TO: Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (“CMHC” or the “Landlord”)
RE: Application for CMHC Granville Island Covid-19 Rent Relief Program (the “Program”) in respect of the relevant Leased Premises
The Tenant hereby declares and confirms the following on the express understanding that CMHC is relying on this Attestation in making a determination of eligibility of the Tenant under the Program:
In the table below, please select which category is applicable, and identify which months during the Target Months your financials (actuals or estimates based on past performance and current conditions) align with each category:
Category 1 – Gross Rent Reduction of 100% (for registered non-profit organizations)
Category 2 – Gross Rent Reduction of 75% (for all other tenants)
*Tenants who have less than a 30% annual gross revenue loss for the Target Months (period from April 1st 2020 – March 31st 2021) compared actual gross revenues from April 1st 2019 – March 31st 2020 will not be eligible for the Program and the difference between the Tenant’s Reduced Rent and the Contract Rent for the Target Months will become payable to CMHC by September 30th, 2021.
**Eligibility in accordance with the revenue loss thresholds will be reconciled by CMHC following the end of the Program based on actual annual gross revenues for the Target Months (period from April 1st 2020 – March 31st 2021). In the event of ineligibility, the Tenant will be required to pay the difference between the Tenant’s Reduced Rent and the Contract Rent for the Target Months to CMHC by no later than September 30th, 2021. Where the Tenant is a new business which commenced operations after April 1st, 2019, impacts to annual gross revenues will be evaluated based on average projected annual gross revenues for April 1st 2020 – March 31st 2021, review and acceptance of which will be at the sole and unfettered discretion of CMHC.
