Upcoming Toronto Hydro Planned Power Interruption at 35 Charles 

We have been informed by Toronto Hydro that they have planned two power shutdowns for 35 Charles. The first shutdown is scheduled for Wednesday September 14th, 2022, from approximately 8:00am – 12:00pm. The second outage has not been scheduled yet, but we are seeking further detail, which will be provided in next week’s communication.  

Emergency power will be used once the main power source is shut down for the building, however this will be limited to just elevators and some emergency lighting throughout the buildings. Domestic water supply equipment and any HVAC systems (kitchen and bathroom exhaust, corridor make-up air) will also all be shut down. 

This shut down will also affect the building’s FOB system and garage doors. To accommodate this, the garage doors will be opened and powered off prior to the shutdown to allow tenants entry and exit. Additional security will be brought in to keep these areas secure, while a security guard will manage lobby access. 

We understand that notice of a power shut down is never welcome news. We are closely monitoring the situation as this scheduled work is subject to change with little to no notice, as has been our experience in the past, for which we will do our best to communicate updates via our website. 

To help accommodate our residents, laundry facilities and public washrooms at 30 Charles will be made available for use. We also recommend filling bottles, containers, and pots with water before the shutdown. 

Additionally, this shutdown will affect our Residence and Admissions offices located at 35 Charles. These offices will be closed for the duration of the shutdown, but our Operations staff will be onsite and closely monitoring the situation. 

Linked here are the details on the shutdown from Toronto Hydro that we were provided with. Please visit for timely updates throughout the day of the shutdown.   

If you have any questions or concerns, please email our Operations team at or reach out directly to Michael Kaev, Assistant Manager, Building Operations & Services, at 

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.
