Where shall I begin. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

Minto is perhaps the most incompetent landlord. Please, if possible, avoid renting or buying any of their properties.
Their staff completely neglect serious concerns voiced by tenants and brush them off as if they're no big deal.
Immediately since we moved in to this 2-bedroom unit a year ago, we've been plagued with mice infestation (originating in the basement), cockroaches and more recently, bed bugs. The maintenance crew has never provided long term solutions and all of this has effectively displaced us. Psychologically this has been extremely hard on us. We've never settled in. All of our belongings remain in storage containers or in garbage bags because they're continuously scheduling treatments (sometimes twice in the same day). It's exhausting and we simply cannot continue to pack and unpack everything in our space every time. For that reason, don't rent a Minto unit because your mental health will surely suffer and you won't get peace of mind.
Some of their maintenance crew are friendly and they have been far more honest about the awful state of the building, the endemic issues it has and the lack of concern from Minto.
Superficially renovating the exterior, hallways and lobby entrance won't change the fact that your units are atrocious and your treatment of tenants is inhumane!
It's just a sly way of increasing rent on vulnerable tenants and benefiting from municipal rebates.

SHAME!

Told minto cockroaches found in August. By October a dozen units were infested with bedbugs. Minor refuses to tell tenants and doesn't treat adjacent units until already infested.
