I've lived in this building for 7.5 years and have never had any problems until now. It seems like there's been a lot more people that have been moving in and out of the building within the last year and perhaps is the reason why bed bugs have shown up. It is tricky because you can catch a bed bug anywhere regardless if you are tidy or not. The most difficult thing, is that this building is really old. Although it is well maintained, there are many imperfections and cracks along baseboards and
corners that make it so easy for bugs to hide and sneak into another unit. So beware! We are getting our unit sprayed twice, but this really is a nightmare to go through. I highly recommend anyone living in a shared complex to invest in a bed bug mattress cover. It won't prevent getting bed bugs, but at least you can sleep with ease knowing they aren't hiding or nesting in your mattress /box spring. Other things can be laundered and cleaned, but a mattress not so much.
Also beware, not everyone has a reaction to bed bug bites. Neither my roommate nor I had visible bites, thank goodness! But we are 100% certain that we have bed bugs and threw out a box spring already. I also am aware that another unit on another floor had bed bug problems late last year but do not know how many units in total are affected. I'm hopeful that getting our unit sprayed twice will help rid of them, but not much can be done if there are other tenants in the building who are messy or just don't care.

I just found this website because I am relocating to Manitoba that someone has complained about my current building.
The managers that we have had for the past six years have been great ! and I have never heard of such complaints in the building since I moved in back in the summer of 2004.
My niece also rented a place here about a year ago and she is loving too after waiting a year on the list.
This location did have cockroaches years years ago and was immediately treated so signs since and
in the summer we can get gnats
So true you need netting if you hate pigeons

I've lived here since Jan 2011, I've seen NO sign of any problems with bed bugs as of this posting.

The reports of bed bugs are 100% FALSE. I just moved in and its been completely bug free.
But there are definitely people washing their clothes... frighting really!
This place is a hidden gem after a few dollars are put into a bird net for the patio (absolutely necessary).
The underground parking is dirt cheap too!

Has there been anything since? Looks like a great place except for these reports... they're freaking me out!

Has the problem been dealt with by management? What floor(s) were the outbreaks on?

Everything looked fine until one day last week I discovered more than a hundred of bedbugs comfortably lying under my mattress.
Also,two weeks ago I saw people washing all their clothes in the laundry room, so I guess I'm not the only one with this problem in the building.
The management arranged for pesticide treatment of the unit, however I could still find bedbugs crawling around on my mattress for several days after that.

One insect just showed up in our living room! Hopefully the infestation has not spread. I have heard that others in the building have them too...

Just found the little buggers. My children got bites starting two weeks ago, we've lived here for years without any problems, so obviously a new infestation. We have not travelled lately.
